Climaveneta to Provide Liquid Cooling for 100 Petaflop Supercomputer Coming to China


Climaveneta of Italy announced that the company has won a contract to provide liquid-cooling equipment for a 100 Petaflop supercomputer coming to the Jiangnan Institute of Computer Technology in Wuxi, China, near Shanghai.

ExaNeSt Technology: Targeting Exascale in 2018


Peter Hopton from Iceotope presented this talk at the HPC User Forum. “ExaNeSt will develop, evaluate, and prototype the physical platform and architectural solution for a unified Communication and Storage Interconnect and the physical rack and environmental structures required to deliver European Exascale Systems. The consortium brings technology, skills, and knowledge across the entire value chain from computing IP to packaging and system deployment; and from operating systems, storage, and communication to HPC with big data management, algorithms, applications, and frameworks. Building on a decade of advanced R&D, ExaNeSt will deliver the solution that can support exascale deployment in the follow-up industrial commercialization phases.”

PEZY & ExaScaler Step Up on the Green500 List with Immersive Cooling

PEZY Computing from Japan has earned the top three rankings on the Green500 list, using a 3M Fluorinert Electronic Liquid in an immersive cooling system built by ExaScaler Inc. The Green500 is a biannual ranking of the most energy-efficient supercomputers in the world. The triple win indicates growing progress and adoption in the field of immersion cooling with engineered dielectric fluids and its potential to transform the high performance computing (HPC) industry with step-change improvements in energy efficiency and compute performance.

CoolIT Systems Named as one of Canada’s fastest-Growing Companies on the 2015 PROFIT 500


CoolIT Systems made the 2015 PROFIT 500 list with five-year revenue growth of 578% and ranked 20th overall in the Information Technology sector.

Reducing Your Data Center “Water Guilt”


Concerns over data center water usage have become topical both in the industry and even in the general press of late. This is not a bad thing as data center water usage is a legitimate concern. The reality is that the problem is rooted in today’s established approaches to data center cooling.

Innovation Keeps Supercomputers Cool


“The range of cooling options now available is testimony to engineering ingenuity. HPC centers can choose between air, oil, dielectric fluid, or water as the heat-transfer medium. Opting for something other than air means that single or two-phase flow could be available, opening up the possibilities of convective or evaporative cooling and thus saving the cost of pumping the fluid round the system.”

FORMAT in Poland to Deploy RackCDU Liquid Cooling Systems


Today Asetek announced an order for its RackCDU data center liquid cooling system placed by FORMAT Sp. Ltd, an IT solutions provider located in Poland. Building on the success of previous smaller orders, FORMAT has ordered 6 RackCDU with cooling loops for a total of 471 compute nodes that will be delivered in Q3. The order will result in revenue to Asetek in the range of $100k.

Interview: Asetek Rides Rapid Adoption of Liquid Cooling for HPC


The HPC industry’s expanded use of liquid cooling was evident at the recent ISC 2015 conference in Frankfurt. To learn more, we caught up with Steve Branton from Asetek.

DEEP Project Moves Towards Exascale at ISC 2015


“With this delivery, the DEEP consortium can leverage a supercomputer with a peak performance of 505 TFlop/s and an efficiency of over 3 GFlop/s per Watt. The Eurotech hot water cooling solution allows for additional permanent gains in energy efficiency at data centre level as it guarantees year-round free cooling in all climate zones. The system includes a matching innovative software stack, and six carefully selected grand challenge simulation applications have been optimized to show the full performance potential of the system.”

CoolIT Systems Innovates with Liquid Cooling at ISC 2015


“Power savings, increased rack density and high performance are the three key advantages of using liquid cooling. CoolIT Systems offers options for data centers with or without facility water hook up. Any server in any rack can be liquid cooled with CoolIT’s hardware, and benefit from immediate and measurable CAPEX and OPEX savings.”
