Today Asetek announced a new order from OEM partner Fujitsu for the Institute of Fluid Science at Tohoku University in Japan. The supercomputing system will consist of multiple computational sub-systems using the latest liquid-cooled Fujitsu PRIMERGY x86 servers, and is planned to deliver a peak theoretical performance exceeding 2.7 petaflops.

The order has a value of USD $420,000 with delivery to be completed in Q1 2018.

The efficiency of Asetek liquid cooling enables data centers to continually push the performance of today’s most powerful processors,” said John Hamill, Asetek Chief Operating Officer.

In this video from SC17 in Denver, Steve Branton from Asetek describes the company’s wide array of liquid cooling solutions for HPC.

Asetek liquid cooling solutions for HPC data centers include RackCDU D2C (Direct-to-Chip), and ServerLSL (Server Level Sealed Loop). RackCDU D2C provides cooling energy savings greater than 50% and density increases of 2.5x-5x. ServerLSL provides liquid assisted air cooling for server nodes, replacing less efficient air coolers and enabling the servers to incorporate the highest performing CPUs and GPUs.”
