Innovation Keeps Supercomputers Cool

SCWJune-July15Cooling

“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

“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.”

Fujitsu Teams with Asetek for Cool-Central Primergy Systems

In this video from ISC 2015, Steve Branton from Asetek describes a series of high profile supercomputing upgrades that show the growing momentum of Asetek liquid cooling in the HPC market. “Asetek customers are using the company’s RackCDU Liquid Cooling for increased datacenter efficiency. See for yourself how Asetek successfully addresses datacenter demands at the University of Tromso, Mississippi State University, NREL, and elsewhere, while working with Cray, Fujitsu and other OEMs.”

Invest in Supercomputers, Not Chillers

Mississippi State

By using Direct-to-Chip liquid cooling, Mississippi State University was able to purchase more servers by minimizing the capital spent to cool the data center. The success of the initial cluster at MSU led to the installation of second cluster.
