Aquila Launches Liquid Cooled OCP Server Platform

“The drive towards Exascale computing requires cooling the next generation of extremely hot CPUs, while staying within a manageable power envelope,” said Bob Bolz, HPC and Data Center Business development at Aquila. “Liquid cooling holds the key. Aquarius is designed from the ground up to meet reliability and the feature-specific demands of high performance and high density computing. Our design goal was to reduce the cost of cooling server resources to well under 5% of overall data center usage.”

Saving Water with Sandia’s New Datacenter Cooling Technology

Engineers at Sandia are developing new datacenter cooling technologies that could save millions of gallons of water nationwide.

Software Framework for Deep Learning

Deep learning solutions are typically a part of a broader high performance analytics function in for profit enterprises, with a requirement to deliver a fusion of business and data requirements. In addition to support large scale deployments, industrial solutions typically require portability, support for a range of development environments, and ease of use.

Making it Easy to Introduce Liquid Cooling to the Data Center

With the release of high wattage processors liquid cooling is becoming a necessity for HPC data centers. Liquid cooling’s ability to provide the direct removal of heat from these high wattage components within the servers is well established. However, there are sometimes concerns from facilities management that need to be addressed prior to liquid cooling’s introduction to the data center.

The Liquid Cooling Revolution Continues for HPC with CoolIT Systems

In this video, CoolIT Systems CEO & CTO, Geoff Lyon, reveals details on the company’s next generation liquid cooling solutions for HPC, Cloud and Enterprise markets during ISC HPC 2016 in Frankfurt. Discussion highlights include OEM server solutions, customer case studies, product launches and more. “To learn more about how CoolIT Systems products and solutions maximize data center performance and efficiency whilst significantly reducing OPEX and overall TCO, visit www.coolitsystems.com.”

Video: Asetek Showcases Liquid Cooling at ISC 2016

In this video from ISC 2016, Steve Branton from Asetek describes the company’s innovative liquid cooling solutions for HPC. “Because liquid is 4,000 times better at storing and transferring heat than air, Asetek’s solutions provide immediate and measurable benefits to large and small data centers alike. RackCDU D2C is a “free cooling” solution that captures between 60% and 80% of server heat, reducing data center cooling cost by over 50% and allowing 2.5x-5x increases in data center server density. D2C removes heat from CPUs, GPUs, memory modules within servers using water as hot as 40°C (105°F), eliminating the need for chilling to cool these components.”

Video: Megware Direct Liquid Cooling at ISC 2016

In this video from ISC 2016, Thomas Blum from Germany’s Megware describes the company’s innovative hot water cooling system. The Slide SX-LC system is cooled by 50 degree celsius water on the input side with an output water temperature of 80 degrees celsius.

Calyos Demonstrates Water Free Cooling at ISC 2016

In this video from ISC 2016, Olivier de Laet from Calyos describes the company’s innovative cooling technology for high performance computing. “The HPC industry is ever facing is facing the challenge of ever-increasing cooling requirements. While liquid cooling cooling looks to be the best solution, what if you could achieve the same efficiencies without out using water and pumps? Enter Calytronics, cooling technology that is as simple as a heat pipe and as performant as liquid cooling.”

Asetek Demonstrates Leadership with Recent Global Installations

Sandia National Laboratories has already seen the benefits from a major Asetek liquid cooled HPC system that has been in use for over twelve months. The 600 teraflop Sky Bridge Supercomputer with 1,848 nodes was installed using Asetek D2C in a Cray CS300-LC supercomputer cluster. With RackCDU D2C, air heat-load was cut by more than 70%, making mechanical upgrade of data center cooling unnecessary and allowing more investment in compute.
