Today CoolIT Systems announced that it has been named as one of four “Cool Vendors in Data Center Management, Power and Cooling” in a new analyst report by Gartner. As part of an annual series, the report offers insight on a variety of innovative and impactful IT solutions and evaluate “Cool Vendors” in key areas of technology.
From bio-engineering and climate studies to big data and high frequency trading, HPC is playing an even greater role in today’s society. Without the power of HPC, the complex analysis and data driven decisions that are made as a result would be impossible. Because these super computers and HPC clusters are so powerful, they are expensive to cool, use massive amounts of energy, and can require a great deal of space.
“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.”
