Intel’s Xeon Scalable Processors Provide Cooling Challenges for HPC

Unless you reduce node and rack density, the wattages of today’s high-poweredCPUs and GPUs are simply no longer addressable with air cooling alone. Asetek explores how new processors, such as Intel’s Xeon Scalable processors, often call for more than just air cooling. “The largest Xeon Phi direct-to-chip cooled system today is Oakforest-PACS system in Japan. The system is made up of 8,208 computational nodes using Asetek Direct-to-Chip liquid cooled Intel Xeon Phi high performance processors with Knights Landing architecture. It is the highest performing system in Japan and #7 on the Top500.”

Asetek Announces Regional OEM HPC installation

Today Asetek announced an order from a new European OEM customer to service demand for an HPC (High Performance Computing) installation. “The order is for Asetek’s RackCDU D2C (Direct-to-Chip) liquid cooling solution and is valued at $32,000 USD with delivery scheduled for Q3 2017.”

Liquid Cooling for HPC Gains Momentum with Asetek at ISC 2017

“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.”

Penguin Computing doubles down on Asetek Liquid Cooling

Today Asetek announced an additional order from Penguin Computing for an undisclosed HPC installation. “This repeat order reflects our strong partnership with Penguin Computing. It is also another confirmation of the increasing need for liquid cooling in high density HPC clusters,” said André Sloth Eriksen, CEO and founder of Asetek.”

Increase in Wattage Trends Make Versatile Liquid Cooling the New Norm

Wattages are rising so high that to cool the nodes containing the highest performance chips used in HPC leaves one with little choice other than liquid cooling to maintain reasonable rack densities. Asetek explores how an increase in wattage trends is pushing the HPC industry toward more versatile liquid cooling options.

Asetek Lands Another RackCDU D2C Order for New HPC Installation

Today Asetek announced an order from one of its existing OEM partners for its RackCDU D2C (Direct-to-Chip) liquid cooling solution. The order is part of a new installation for an undisclosed HPC customer.

Asetek Liquid Cooling Solution Coming to HPC Center

Today Asetek announced a new order from one of its existing OEM partners for its RackCDU D2C (Direct-to-Chip) liquid cooling solution. The order is part of a new installation for an undisclosed HPC customer. “I am very pleased with the progress we are making in our emerging data center business segment,” said André Sloth Eriksen, CEO and founder of Asetek. “This repeat order, from one of our OEM partners, to a new end customer confirms the trust in our unique liquid cooling solutions and that adoption is growing.”

Asetek Enters Product Development Agreement with Major Datacenter Player

Today liquid-cooling technology provider Asetek announced that the company has signed a development agreement with a “major player” in the data center space. “This development agreement is the direct result of several years of collaboration and I am very pleased that we have come this far with our partner. I expect this is the major breakthrough we have been waiting for,” said André Sloth Eriksen, CEO and founder of Asetek.

Asetek Achieves 200 Million Hours of Fault-Free Pump Operations at DataCenters

Today Asetek announced that its server pump has achieved 200 million hours of reliable operation in real world use. Installed at end-user locations as diverse as Singapore and Norway, Asetek pumps have run fault-free for the equivalent of 22,000 years. “To date, we have not had a single server pump failure at any of our data center installations around the world,” said Mette Nørmølle, Vice President of Engineering. “Our low-pressure architecture is the key to enabling a cost-effective solution that is relied on by data centers demanding unrivaled performance and maximum uptime.”

Asetek Lands Nine Installations on the Green500

“As seen at installations included on both the Green500 and Top500 lists, Asetek’s distributed liquid cooling architecture enables cluster energy efficiency in addition to sustained and un-throttled cluster performance,” said John Hamill, Vice President of WW Sales and Marketing. “Around the world, data centers are increasingly using Asetek technology for High Performance Computing while reducing energy costs.”
