Cray CS300-LC Cluster: Why Warm Water is the New “Cool”

Cray CS300

With the rise of manycore processors, double-dense blade form factors, and wider and deeper cabinets, the size and density of HPC systems have grown more than 300 percent since 1999. This high density of “heat offenders” requires a much-more efficient method of temperature control than is possible with air cooling. And while liquid cooling is generally more efficient, not all liquid alternatives are created equal.

Today Boston Limited and CoolIT Systems sent out congratulations to the student team from EPCC at The University of Edinburgh for their 1st place ranking for the Highest LINPACK in the history of the ISC’14 Student Cluster Challenge.

Benefits of Liquid Cooling for HPC

CoolIT Rack DCLC

In this Sponsored Post from CoolIT we explore the many benefits liquid cooling offers to HPC and data center operators. For starters liquid cooling is about 3,500 times better at storing and transferring heat than air. Direct contact liquid cooling (DCLC) uses the exceptional thermal conductivity of liquid to provide dense, concentrated cooling to targeted areas. The many benefits of liquid cooling may surprise you.
