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.
Today Asetek announced plans to showcase its liquid cooling solutions and successful installations at ISC 2016 in Frankfurt. “For the first time, Asetek will be displaying its new InRackCDU cooling solution. InRackCDU provides the option of having RackCDU mounted in the server rack. InRackCDU does not take up aisle space and includes the same monitoring features as Asetek’s VerticalRackCDU.”
Today CoolIT Systems rolled out its new CHx80 Heat Exchange Module. As part of an expanded its Rack DCLC product line, this next generation liquid-to-liquid heat exchanger provides cooling capacity with N+1 reliability to manage the most challenging, high density HPC racks. CoolIT will showcase the rack-mount CHx80 at ISC16 in Frankfurt.
Asetek will highlight its liquid cooling solutions and successful installations at ISC 2016 next week in Frankfurt. For the first time, Asetek will be displaying its new InRackCDU cooling solution. InRackCDU provides the option of having RackCDU mounted in the server rack. InRackCDU does not take up aisle space and includes the same monitoring features as Asetek’s VerticalRackCDU.
Today CoolIT Systems announced that the company will showcase its energy efficient liquid cooling technologies for HPC at ISC 2016 in Frankfurt. “Our comprehensive offering of energy efficient liquid cooling solutions at ISC16 far exceeds anything CoolIT has done in the past,” says CoolIT Systems CEO and CTO Geoff Lyon. “With Europe at the forefront of energy efficient HPC, attendees can discover how rapidly the liquid cooling market is maturing, as evidenced by our growing list of global customers and OEM partners.”
“Because water can transport heat 25 times more efficiently than air, ‘Triton’ can run high performing components faster and more efficiently than traditional air-cooled systems. Its ability to sub-cool the processor and operate at higher frequencies means that Triton can deliver up to 59% greater performance than the popular Intel Xeon processor E5-2680v4 for similar costs.”
Today CoolIT Systems announced it has enabled Cascade Technologies to increase their compute density by 2.5 times within their existing floor space, rack space, and air conditioning capacity by deploying liquid cooling. “Partnering with CoolIT Systems solved our key requirements of more compute density without having to expand our floor space or AC capacity,” said Frank Ham, CEO at Cascade Technologies. “The liquid cooled solution surpasses our efficiency goals, allows us to pack a lot of compute into a small environment, and is impressively quiet.”
Today CoolIT Systems announced that it has successfully completed the second deployment of its Rack DCLC liquid cooling solution at the Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Center (PSNC) in partnership with Huawei. “We are pleased to have migrated from a liquid cooled pilot project with CoolIT Systems to a full-scale rollout,” said Radoslaw Januszewski, IT Specialist at PSNC. “The pilot project proved to be very reliable, it met our efficiency goals, and provided a bonus performance boost with the processors very happy to be kept at a cool, consistent temperature as a result of liquid cooling’s effectiveness.”
Although liquid cooling is considered by many to be the future for data centers, the fact remains that there are some who do not yet need to make a full transformation to liquid cooling. Others are restricted until the next budget cycle. Whatever the reason, new technologies like Internal Loop are more affordable than liquid cooling and can replaces less efficient air coolers. This enables HPC data centers to still utilize the highest performing CPUs and GPUs.
In this video from SC15, Peter Hopton from Iceotope describes the company’s innovative liquid cooling technology for the European ExaNeSt project. “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.”
