Data Center Installations

With the growth of big data, cloud and high performance computing, demands on data centers around the world are expanding every year. Frequently, meeting these demands means coming up against significant obstacles in the form of operating constraints, capital constraints, and sustainability goals. Around the world, Asetek’s data center liquid cooling solutions are being used to overcome these obstacles one-by-one. Below are a few of the installations that showcase the benefits of Asetek's liquid cooling for data centers: Reduced OPEX, Optimized CAPEX, Unleashed Performance, and Going Green. 

North America


One of the World’s Largest Open Compute Based Installations

Penguin-CEC.jpg

Penguin Computing and U.S. Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration has announced one of the world’s largest Open Compute Installations spanning three National Laboratories: Lawrence Livermore, Los Alamos and Sandia. The Tri-lab effort will help reduce costs, increase operational efficiencies, & facilitate collaborations that benefit America’s security and support academia.

In Singapore, the recently commissioned 40 rack Fujitsu HPC cluster at the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*Star) implemented Asetek RackCDU D2C™ to help address key goals for the Agency: improve energy efficiency and improve PUE. The Fujitsu CX400 cluster with Asetek liquid cooling was selected to cool the Xeon CPU and Memory as well as NVIDIA® K40 GPUs. As a result, A*Star expects to save around $1 million U.S. in electricity savings per year.
