Today Boston Limited and CoolIT Systems sent out congratulations to the student team from EPCC at The University of Edinburgh for their 1st place ranking for the Highest LINPACK in the history of the ISC’14 Student Cluster Challenge.

Benefits of Liquid Cooling for HPC

CoolIT Rack DCLC

In this Sponsored Post from CoolIT we explore the many benefits liquid cooling offers to HPC and data center operators. For starters liquid cooling is about 3,500 times better at storing and transferring heat than air. Direct contact liquid cooling (DCLC) uses the exceptional thermal conductivity of liquid to provide dense, concentrated cooling to targeted areas. The many benefits of liquid cooling may surprise you.

Immersion Cooling Steps Up for HPC Clusters

Robert Roe

“The race is hotting up for immersive cooling in HPC, with two major announcements concerning submerged HPC clusters. A consortium of Austrian research organizations has ordered a high performance cluster from ClusterVision, that will use Green Revolution’s mineral oil submerged cooling solution. At the same time, 3M announced a “proof of concept” submerged HPC cluster, in collaboration with Intel and SGI, that uses two-phase immersion cooling technology.”

True Scale Fabric Powers HPC Efficiency for VSC-3 Project in Austria

VSC

With an emphasis on energy efficiency, VSC-3 has a mission to put Austria’s most powerful supercomputer at the forefront of the Green500 with help from ClusterVision, Green Revolution Cooling, and Intel True Scale InfiniBand.

Nicholas Dube from HP presented this talk at the Adaptive Computing booth at SC13. “The ESIF data center is designed to achieve an annualized average power usage effectiveness (PUE) rating of 1.06 or better. Going beyond traditional PUE measurements, the NREL HPC Data Center is using warm-water liquid cooling for its high-power computer components, then capturing and reusing that waste heat as the primary heat source in the ESIF offices and laboratory space.”
