Demo Room Features State of the Art High-Density, Power Efficient HPC Cluster Cooled by Asetek’s RackCDU
Asetek Demo RoomAsetek® today announced that it has built a demonstration room in its San Jose, CA office to showcase the company’s RackCDU™, ISAC™, and internal loop liquid cooling solutions for servers and data centers. The room features a state-of-the-art Asetek RackCDU-cooled HPC cluster. The fully populated rack consumes 37kW of power at full load. The heat from the direct-to-chip and memory coolers is absorbed into liquid and rejected through the RackCDU connected directly to a dry cooler installed on the roof. Because the system is designed to cool with a 40C (104F) inlet temperature, it does not require any sort of compressive or evaporative chilling meaning there is also no waste of water.
Roughly 80% of the rack’s waste heat is recaptured directly into the facilities water. This waste heat can be reclaimed for other purposes, such as building heating, making it extremely energy efficient. The integrated RackCDU monitoring and surveillance software is running on wall-mounted LCDs to monitor the performance of nodes, energy recapture, inlet and outlet liquid temperatures, and other cooling statistics.
Asetek also has the ability to change parameters such as flow, temperatures and load on the fly, making it possible to demonstrate almost any user-scenario and the associated value proposition in terms of power saving, performance and/or density.
“We want to welcome OEMs, data center operators, press and others interested to our facility and show the world our data center solutions are more than glossy PowerPoints and theory,” said Andre Eriksen, Asetek’s CEO. “Seeing is believing and we will show our claimed value propositions right here and right now.”
Members of the press or other interested parties are invited to take a tour of the demonstration room and can request an appointment by emailing Asetek at email@example.com.
