CoolIT Systems to Showcase Liquid Cooling Technology at ISC 2018

Today CoolIT Systems announced plans to showcase the company’s energy efficient liquid cooling solutions at ISC 2018. “As new advancements in HPC and AI continue to push computational boundaries, data center operators are realizing liquid cooling is, in many cases, the only answer,” said Geoff Lyon, CEO and CTO at CoolIT Systems. “Our collaboration with OEM partners such as Dell EMC, HPE, Intel and STULZ provides further evidence that the future of the data center is destined for liquid cooling.”

Lenovo Moves Liquid Cooling Forward with Neptune

Today Lenovo released details its pending Neptune liquid-cooling systems, which will enable data centers to run “up to 50 percent more efficiently, with uncompromising performance while maintaining a dense footprint.”  “In Roman mythology, Neptune used his three-pronged trident to tame the sea. This inspired Lenovo’s liquid cooling “trident” of cooling technologies: Direct to Node (DTN) warm water cooling, rear door heat exchanger, and hybrid solutions that combine both air and liquid cooling.”

Energy Efficiency and Water-Cool-Technology Innovations at Lenovo

Karsten Kutzer from Lenovo gave this talk at the 2018 Swiss HPC Conference. “This session will discuss why water cooling is becoming more and more important for HPC data centers, Lenovo’s series of innovations in the area of direct water-cooled systems, and ways to re-use “waste heat” created by HPC systems.”

Asetek Announces Ongoing Collaboration with Intel on Liquid Cooling for Servers and Datacenters

In anticipation of forthcoming product announcements, Asetek today announced an ongoing collaboration with Intel to provide hot water liquid cooling for servers and datacenters. This collaboration, which includes Asetek’s ServerLSL and RackCDU D2C technologies, is focused on the liquid cooling of density-optimized Intel Compute Modules supporting high-performance Intel Xeon Scalable processors.

Video: NREL Evaluates Aquarius Liquid Cooling Technology for HPC

Today Aquila announced delivery and installation of the first ever fixed cold plate liquid cooled Aquarius HPC system. Sandia National Laboratories has deployed the system at the NREL in order to fully study the benefits of Aquila’s fixed cold plate warm water cooling technology. “We feel their leadership will help shape the future of HPC and influence the modern data center designer towards adoption of liquid cooling. Our shared vision holds the promise of improving data center energy efficiency by as much as 50%.”

NREL Report Evaluates LiquidCool Solutions for the Datacenter

NREL researchers are testing immersive liquid cooling technologies that could potentially bring huge energy savings to HPC datacenters. With worldwide datacenters consuming an estimated 70 billion kWh per year, a disruptive energy-saving solution is needed, and a liquid-submerged server (LSS) technology from LiquidCool Solutions might be the answer. “The testing confirmed that the LSS technology could not only maintain target temperatures under heavy computational load, but that the hot liquid could be used to heat buildings more efficiently than NREL’s current solution.”
