@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

DOE to Fund $42M for HPC Cooling Systems

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Department of Energy today announced up to $42 million in funding for “high-performance energy efficient cooling solutions for data centers.” More about the COOLERCHIPS funding opportunity, and details on how to apply can be found at: ARPA-E eXCHANGE. Noting that cooling accounts for up to 40 percent of data center […]

Lenovo Brings a Decade of Liquid Cooling Experience to the Faster, Denser, Hotter HPC Systems of the Future

[SPONSORED CONTENT]  HPC systems customers (and vendors) are in permanent pursuit of more compute power with equal or greater node density. But with that comes more power consumption, greater heat generation and rising cooling costs. Because of this, the IT business – with a boost from the HPC and hyperscale segments – is spiraling up […]
