Invest in Supercomputers, Not Chillers

Data center administrators continually face the challenge of meeting expanding demand for compute while dealing with constrained budgets. Historically, the budget to expand compute came with a matching budget to expand data center infrastructure. In part, the infrastructure budget allowed the facilities team…

Cooling a Department of Defense Data Center

Data centers are the most energy-intense DoD (Department of Defense) buildings.  They account for roughly 11% of all electricity consumed by the DoD with 40% going to cooling alone. That translates into 7.5 trilion BTUs/year of unused heat. Because of this extraordinary waste, multiple Federal mandates are dr…

Timelapse: Installing Asetek Liquid Cooling Inside Cisco 220 Server

Installing and servicing Asetek liquid cooled servers is much like servicing air-cooled servers. CPU (Central Processing Unit) and GPGPU (General-Purpose Computing on Graphics Processing Units) coolers are drop in replacements for their air-cooled counter parts. In this video, we'll show you just how quick an…

Reducing Energy Use in Data Centers: A Video

Previously, we released an infographic that showed the massive energy use of data centers in the world today. For example, 2% of all electricity in the US is consumed by data centers. 86 billion kilowatt hours is used in the US alone, just to cool those servers. Asetek’s RackCDU technology goes a long way in…
