Asperitas Startup Brings Immersive Cooling to Datacenters

Today Dutch startup Asperitas rolled out Immersed Computing cooling technology for datacenters. “The company’s first market ready solution, the AIC24, ‘the first water-cooled oil-immersion system which relies on natural convection for circulation of the dielectric liquid.’ This results in a fully self-contained and Plug and Play modular system. The AIC24 needs far less infrastructure than any other liquid installation, saving energy and costs on all levels of datacentre operations. The AIC24 is the most sustainable solution available for IT environments today. Ensuring the highest possible efficiency in availability, energy reduction and reuse, while increasing capacity. Greatly improving density, while saving energy at the same time.”

Seeking Innovators for the StartupHPC Workshop at SC16

In this special guest feature, Cydney Ewald Stevens writes that Salt Lake City will soon host the return of the SC conference along with the third annual StartupHPC Workshop. “People come together at StartupHPC to learn from each other,” said founder Shahin Khan. “These are all leaders in their own right. From successful CxO’ and serial entrepreneurs to industry influencers these leaders come together each year to impart their wisdoms and experiences, share their own ‘journeys’ and help others prosper as a result.”

Parallware Selected for SC16 Emerging Technologies Showcase

Today European software startup Appentra announced that its Parallware technology for guided parallelization has been selected to be part of the SC16 Emerging Technologies Showcase. “As a technology with the potential to influence computing and society as a whole, Parallware is novel LLVM-Based Software Technology for Classification of Scientific Codes to Assist in Parallelization with OpenMP and OpenACC.”

STEM IP – Advancing HPC, Industry & Society

“When it comes to commercialization of promising IP, HPC punches below its weight. That, we can and should change. Where does the HPC community get training on entrepreneurship? How do you become an entrepreneur? Does it have to be in your blood, or can you actually learn how to do it? It turns out you can learn most of it, and in the process (since nobody is excellent at everything), you also learn how to surround yourself with others who are good at other necessary things.”
