Testing the Waters of Liquid Cooling with Asetek ServerLSL

Jun 6, 2016 |

Trends in chipset wattage, rack density and the need for sustained un-throttled throughput have made it clear that liquid cooling will be a centerpiece for HPC data centers sooner rather than later.  HPC sites in particular are facing issues that purely air cooled servers and cutting edge air cooled data centers will be unable to Read more…

Reduce Your HPC Water Usage with Water!

Nov 9, 2015 |

Concerns over data center water usage have become topical both in the High Performance Computing (HPC) industry and even in the general press of late.  This is not a bad thing as data center water usage is a legitimate concern. The reality is that the problem is rooted in today’s established approaches to data center Read more…

NNSA Taps Penguin Computing for 7-9 Petaflops ‘Open’ HPC Cluster

Oct 21, 2015 |

Per a newly-inked contract with Penguin Computing, the Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) is set to receive its third joint procurement of a commodity supercomputing environment to replace its 2011-2012 era systems. The new installation, called the Tri-Laboratory Commodity Technology System 1, or CTS-1, replaces the the Tri-Lab Linux Capacity Cluster 2 Read more…

Adoption of RackCDU D2C Liquid Cooling Flows On

Jul 20, 2015 |

Recent activities on both the OEM and the end user side point to the accelerated adoption of, not only liquid cooling in general, but in particular Asetek’s RackCDU D2C™ (Direct-to-Chip). RackCDU is Asetek’s innovative hot water, direct-to-chip, data center liquid cooling technology. In the RackCDU D2C system Direct-to-Chip server, coolers replace the CPU/GPU heat sinks Read more…

Liquid Cooling Delivering on the Promise

Nov 10, 2014 |

The demand for more efficient HPC liquid cooling in data centers is being driven by a number of factors. While the push to Exascale is a fundamental driver in the most extreme cases where power and cooling loom large as barriers, there is an overall the need to cool server racks of higher power usage Read more…

UiT Recycles Supercomputing Power with Asetek’s RackCDU™

Jun 23, 2014 |

The University of Tromso (UiT) the “Artic University of Norway” is the world’s northernmost university with four campuses spread out across Norway. UiT is already a leader in High Performance Computing (HPC). In 2007 its STALLO cluster became the most powerful cluster in Norway and reached 63rd position in the Top500. In 2014 STALLO 2 Read more…

Reality Check on Liquid Cooling in the Data Center

Dec 9, 2013 |

Evaluating liquid cooling for a data center requires an understanding of both the technical approach and ability of the solution to address the business and operational concerns of the data center. To be practical, it must not only be technically sound but must provide reduced operational costs (OpEx) and/or capital expenditures (CapEx) and must satisfy Read more…
