With the growth of big data, cloud and high performance computing, demands on data centers around the world are expanding every year. Unfortunately, these demands are coming up against significant opposition in the form of operating constraints, capital constraints, and sustainability goals. In this article, we look at 8 of these constraints and how direct-to-chip liquid cooling is solving them.
From bio-engineering and climate studies to big data and high frequency trading, HPC is playing an even greater role in today’s society. Without the power of HPC, the complex analysis and data driven decisions that are made as a result would be impossible. Because these super computers and HPC clusters are so powerful, they are expensive to cool, use massive amounts of energy, and can require a great deal of space.
