Asetek Announces Global OEM Purchase Agreement with Fujitsu
Asetek® announced today a global purchase agreement with Fujitsu Technology Solutions GmbH, a leading global server vendor. Fujitsu will incorporate Asetek’s RackCDU D2C™ liquid cooling technology into its High Performance Computing (HPC) server product line. RackCDU™ enhances Fujitsu’s ability to provide solutions for world-class data center efficiency and reduced operating costs. RackCDU liquid cooling improves data center performance by increasing energy efficiency and server density.
Asetek expects Fujitsu to launch the first products based on RackCDU in the second quarter of 2015, and anticipates product launches involving various server models throughout the year. In 2014, Fujitsu was cited by IDC to be the fourth largest server vendor by revenue.
“This agreement is a significant milestone for Asetek and its stakeholders,” said André Sloth Eriksen, founder and CEO of Asetek. “Our collaboration with Fujitsu ushers in a new stage in the adoption of RackCDU. With its global reach and industry position, Fujitsu is poised to drive adoption of Asetek liquid cooling in data centers worldwide.”
Asetek’s liquid cooling technology provides tangible financial savings for data centers. The typical data center today uses 40% or more of its power for cooling and reducing power consumption is essential to achieving lower data center operating costs. As cited in a study by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, a leading center for energy efficiency research of the US Department of Energy, RackCDU can save over 50% of cooling power and over 21% of total data center energy. Additionally, RackCDU’s ability to increase server density by a factor of 2.5-5x avoids the need for expensive data center build outs.
Asetek is the world leading provider of energy efficient liquid cooling systems for data centers, servers, workstations, gaming and high performance PCs. Its products are used for reducing power and greenhouse emissions, lowering acoustic noise, and achieving maximum performance by leading OEMs and channel partners around the globe.
Asetek’s products are based upon its patented all-in-one liquid cooling technology with more than 2 million liquid cooling units deployed in the field. Founded in 2000, Asetek is headquartered in Denmark with offices in California, China and Taiwan. For more information, visit http://www.asetek.com.
