Liquid Cooling Trends in HPC

In this special guest feature, Bob Fletcher from Verne Global reflects on how liquid cooling technologies on display at SC19 represent more than just a wave. “My intuition suggests that the larger established water-cooling users will mostly stick with their familiar high-pressure solution, but the newer green field deployments will be fertile ground for the new vacuum CDUs. In particular, the AI community as their compute accelerators become increasingly water-cooled, while maintaining their short 2-year product life.”

Nortek Unveils World’s Most Powerful CDU for Data Center Liquid Cooling

Today Nortek Air Solutions rolled out its new CDU1200, a 1,200-kW coolant distribution unit (CDU). As the single most powerful, compact CDU on the planet, the CDU1200 is the newest addition to its ServerCool data center liquid cooling product line. “The CDU1200 is a perfect new construction or retrofit liquid cooling solution for high performance computing and enterprise data centers, as well co-location, corporate network edge, government, research and other data center formats. In an age where liquid cooling is required to support growing chip power densities, the CDU1200’s kW/ft2 capacity is unrivalled when directly compared to competitor products.”
