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 North American Awards. RackCDU is one of only four finalists, chosen among 25 entries, in its category for the inaugural North American Awards. Built up over the last six years, the 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 alongside giants such as Facebook for this award” said André Sloth Eriksen, Founder and CEO of Asetek. “We see this nomination as a further confirmation 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 up to 80% of the heat from servers with an all liquid path and rejects it into ambient outdoor air without chilling. This enables cooling cost reductions in excess of 50%, density increases of 2.5x, and recovery of all the server energy removed by RackCDU for reuse in facility heating and cooling.
The DatacenterDynamics North American Awards recognize innovation, leadership and thinking in the data center industry across the North American region. With eight established award categories, the Awards celebrate data center projects of all sizes and sectors in North America, encompassing many hundreds of worthy entries. DatacenterDynamics knows that behind every definitive product and solution, there is a great idea. The “Future Thinking & Design Concepts” award recognizes the kind of innovation and “out of the box” thinking that is shaping the next generation of cutting-edge data center solutions.
The DatacenterDynamics awards will be presented at the Inaugural DatacenterDynamics North American Awards ceremony on July 12th at the Merchants Exchange Building in San Francisco.
