CoolIT Partners with Penguin Computing

SAN JOSE, Calif., March 25 – CoolIT Systems, the global expert in Direct Contact Liquid Cooling (DCLC) for HPC, cloud and enterprise markets, partners with Penguin Computing to deliver the Relion 2808GT Rack DCLC solution at the NVIDIA GTC Conference in San Jose, California.

Complementing the Relion 2808GT’s industry leading high density 8 NVIDIA Tesla K40m boards in a 2U form factor, CoolIT’s partnership with Penguin Computing addresses power and cooling concerns when using high-density configurations.

The Relion 2808GT with CoolIT’s Rack DCLC Solution provides direct-to-chip liquid cooling to both of the Intel Xeon Processors along with eight NVIDIA K40 GPUs. This translates into CoolIT’s Rack DCLC Solution addressing 86% of total server heat while facility air cooling requirement is substantially reduced to 14%.

By reducing the air cooling requirement, an increased number of Relion 2808GT servers per rack is possible as well as decreasing data center rack footprint. This will deliver up 24% OPEX savings per year.

“CoollT’s Rack DCLC can be deployed with any server and in any rack making it a truly flexible solution that allows for an edge in today’s highly competitive marketplace,” said Phil Pokorny, CTO of Penguin Computing. “Our customer will be satisfied to know we can increase number of GPU per rack without additional heat penalty thanks to liquid cooling.”

“Partnering with Penguin Computing on the ultra-dense Relion 2808GT showcases the cost benefits of liquid cooling in a real world application,” said Geoff Lyon, CEO/CTO CoollT Systems.  “With close to immediate ROI and 25%+ decreases in operating expense we are able to achieve extreme densities and unparalleled performance for Penguin’s customers.”
