Data Center and colocation operators face a serious challenge in how to keep their facilities relevant in the face of faster and hotter compute platforms.
A New Approach
The latest CPUs, GPUs, and servers are getting both smaller in footprint, faster in processing, and therefore substantially hotter than ever before. Traditional methods of air-cooling can no longer keep pace with thermal management requirements of these new devices. In addition, the space, complexity, maintenance, capital and operating costs of a traditional CRAC retrofit destroys margins while not even buying enough head-room to ever recover the investment.
What is needed is an entirely new approach to data center cooling. An approach that:
- Enables PUEs of 1.03-1.05 without exotic locations, engineering, or hyper scale
- Reduces capital investment by up to 40%
- Reduces IT room footprints up to 80%
- Reduced operating costs by up to 50%
- Enables off the shelf servers to achieve NEBs compliance with no additional engineering.
Single-phase, Liquid Immersion Cooling, known as SLIC is the solution.
SLIC is simple to deploy, operate, and maintain. There is no other data center cooling solution available that enables up to 1500kW/sq.ft of cooling & power in only 1,500sq.ft of IT space. SLIC can support over 200kW per rack and up to 96 blade servers in a 56RU rack, while also delivering a massive reduction in electrical power usage and on-going operating costs regardless of the number of servers deployed.
The future of 5G, AI, IoT, Mobile Edge Compute, Real-time services, Self-driving cars, Augmented Reality, Geophysical Engineering, and Movie and Graphics Rendering all rely on the use of GPUs and CPUs exceeding power densities from 250-500W per chip, in devices deployed in quantity right at the edge of the network. SLIC is the only cooling solution that provides the ability to scale up or down on a linear cost and operations basis to enable these applications to live at the Edge.
How ElectroCool® Can Benefit Your Data Center
Full immersion Cooling of electronics in Engineered Fluids Dielectric Coolants is the simplest and most reliable way of ensuring that semiconductors and electronics remain at their optimum operating temperatures without the need to use fans, complex designs, and the limitations of air as a cooling medium.
