Cray to Install Asetek Liquid-Cooled Cray CS300 Cluster Supercomputer at Mississippi State University
Asetek today announced that the previously undisclosed customer of its first order of RackCDU liquid cooling system is global supercomputing leader Cray Inc. Cray has awarded a contract to provide Mississippi State University with a Cray® CS300-LC™ system — a liquid-cooled version of the Cray CS300 cluster supercomputer. The new Cray system, nicknamed “Shadow,” will be located at the University’s High Performance Computing Collaboratory (HPC²), and will serve as the primary high performance computing system for shared research.
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.
