@HPCpodcast: For Lower Costs and Carbon, Liquid Cooling’s Growing HPC Presence

Gone are the days when liquid cooling for HPC-class servers (and, for that matter, other types of servers and PCs) is thought of as risky. In fact, liquid cooling has been under development for decades — it goes back much farther than you might think. And now that the power required to cool HPC clusters and data centers has become so expensive and carbon-intensive, liquid cooling has become increasingly prevalent. Some HPC centers report liquid cooling has cut their electrical spending by more than 30 percent. These and related topics are the focus of this @HPCpodcast episode, sponsored by Lenovo. Shahin and Doug discuss liquid cooling as part of decarbonization and sustainability strategies. We cover everything from chilled doors to direct-to-chip, immersion cooling, vapor chambers, under-water data centers

Google Launches AI Supercomputer Powered by Tens of Thousands of NVIDIA H100 GPUs

If a computer’s intelligence can be anthropomorphized, then an AI supercomputer that can scale to 26,000 GPUs (26 exaFLOPS AI throughput) is at the head of the class. That’s the case with Google’s new A3 GPU supercomputers for Google Cloud, introduced at the Google I/O 2023 conference. Google said A3 GPU VMs are designed to […]
