In this video from ISC 2017, Steve Branton from Asetek describes how the company’s innovative liquid cooling solutions are gaining momentum throughout the HPC space.

“Asetek’s cost- and energy efficient liquid cooling solutions for HPC and data centers were on display at our booth. Asetek’s engineers and sales team, including Mandarin-speaking staff, are present to showcase Asetek’s innovative solutions.

The 2016 TOP500 and Green500 lists include nine installations that use Asetek liquid cooling, including Japan’s fastest computer, the Oakforest-PACS supercomputer in Tokyo (ranked #6 on both lists). Today, an increasing number of HPC installations deploy Asetek technology with existing installations expanding and new ones coming onboard.

Liquid cooling is becoming the new norm in the face of skyrocketing wattages by CPUs, GPUs and cluster nodes. Asetek cooling solutions are currently provided by OEMs such as Cray, Fujitsu, Format, Penguin. Liquid cooling for NVIDIA P100, Intel Knight’s Landing and Skylake were all on display at Asetek’s booth as well as rack-level options such as InRackCDU and Vertical RackCDU.

2017 is the inflection point for HPC cooling. We are seeing higher wattage clusters that will need liquid cooling so they can operate. It is a clear sign that liquid cooling is becoming the new norm. We are also seeing new HPC installations come onboard – a clear signal that our technology in making an impact on the industry,” said John Hamill, Asetek Chief Operating Officer.
