NREL’s Peregrine: HP’s Warm Water Cooled HPC Platform


Nicholas Dube from HP presented this talk at the Adaptive Computing booth at SC13. “The ESIF data center is designed to achieve an annualized average power usage effectiveness (PUE) rating of 1.06 or better. Going beyond traditional PUE measurements, the NREL HPC Data Center is using warm-water liquid cooling for its high-power computer components, then capturing and reusing that waste heat as the primary heat source in the ESIF offices and laboratory space.”

Clustered Systems Leads with Innovative Cooling


In this video, Bob Lipp from Clustered Systems describes the company’s innovative cooling technology for high-density blade systems. “We integrate components, systems and software from leading suppliers with our patented two phase cooling infrastructure to deliver the greenest high performance compute systems. These whisper quiet systems drive down infrastructure and operational costs.”

KFC Supercomputer Trims the Power Bill


The KFC prototype supercomputer at the Tokyo Institute of Technology uses immersive cooling with mineral oil to make it the most energy-efficient machine of its kind.

Motivair Active Cooling System Makes it Simple for HPC Datacenters


In this video from SC13, Rich Whitmore from Motivair describes the company’s active cooling door system that can be fitted to the rear of any new or existing server rack. In-row rack coolers with containment systems require increased use of valuable data center floor space, increased energy consumption, and a rigid architecture system that is not conducive to rapid changes. The Motivair Chilled Door system is designed to overcome these issues by providing effective cooling of individual racks, regardless of the server heat load at any given time.

CoolIT Chills TOP500 System on the SC13 Show Floor


In this video from SC13, Geoff Lyon from CoolIT Systems describes the company’s array of innovative liquid cooling technologies for HPC datacenters. Intel recently selected CoolIT technology to cool the worlds first TOP500 system to appear on the SC conference show floor.

Asetek Shows Growing Momentum for Liquid Cooling at SC13


In this video from SC13, Steve Branton from Asetek describes the company’s array of innovative liquid-cooling technologies for HPC datacenters. RackCDU ISAC provides cooling cost reductions exceeding 80% and enables operation without concern for air quality.
