Aquila Debuts Warm Water Cooled OCP Server

Sep 15, 2016 |

New Mexico-based technology firm Aquila is announcing the first OCP-inspired server rack to use fixed cold plate liquid cooling technology. Based on the Facebook-initiated Open Compute Project (OCP) standard, the Aquarius rack integrates patented third-generation cooling technology designed by Clustered Systems. The platform supports up to 108 Xeon servers per rack and will target high density HPC and hyperscale computing applications.

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…

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…

Austrian Unis Stand Up Paraffin-Cooled Supercomputer

Jul 15, 2014 |

Despite stagnation at the upper echelon of supercomputing, countries around the world are continuing to invest in supercomputing as a tool for science and innovation. In Austria, several universities have joined forces to purchase an energy-efficient supercomputer that relies on oil immersion to keep cool. Eight Austrian universities are participating in the project and will share the supercomputing resource, Read more…
