Today CoolIT Systems announced 2014 financials and growing demand for the company’s Direct Contact Liquid Cooling technologies.
“The momentum at Supercomputing from vendors and end users for liquid cooling grows annually with the increase in rack density and efficiency requirements,” said Geoff Lyon, CEO/CTO of CoolIT Systems. “We are responding to this demand with our largest display ever of enterprise level liquid cooling solutions.”
In this video from SC14, Keith Deakin from ICEOTOPE describes the company’s innovative cooling solutions for HPC. “Iceotope is the home of cutting edge liquid cooling technology. Its patented technology offers high density IT, reduces energy consumption and improves computing performance. Iceotope systems have no fans, are virtually silent in operation, and can be positioned in populated or hostile environments in addition to the traditional data centre. Iceotope’s mission is to reduce energy usage, improve performance and drive down the costs associated with high performance computing.”
Today Asetek announced that the company will showcase its full range of RackCDU liquid cooling systems for HPC data centers at SC14.
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.
