Asetek®, the world’s leading supplier of computer liquid cooling solutions, announced today that its RackCDU™ technology has been named a finalist in the “Future Thinking & Design Concepts” category of the 2013 DatacenterDynamics EMEA Awards. RackCDU was chosen as one of only four Finalists in the awards for the Europe/Middle East/Africa region (EMEA). Built up over the last six years, the annual DatacenterDynamics Awards have become the industry’s most sought-after prize and are often referred to as the “Oscars” of the data center field.
“We are honored to be acknowledged for our innovation in the field of data center cooling and proud to be a finalist for this award,” said André Sloth Eriksen, Founder and CEO of Asetek. “This nomination further validates that our solutions address the growing problem of energy efficiency in the data center in a cost effective and practical way.”
RackCDU is Asetek’s innovative hot water, direct-to-chip, data center liquid cooling technology, which removes heat from CPUs, GPUs, memory modules and other hot spots within the servers with an all-liquid path and rejects it into ambient outdoor air without chilling. This enables cooling savings in excess of 50%, density increases of 2.5x to 5x, and recovery of all the server energy removed by RackCDU for reuse in facility heating and cooling.
