CoolIT Systems partners with Penguin Computing to deliver the Relion 2808GT Rack Direct Contact Liquid Cooling (DCLC) solution.
Complementing the Relion 2808GT’s high density 8 NVIDIA Tesla K40m boards in a 2U form factor, CoolIT’s partnership with Penguin Computing addresses power and cooling concerns when using high-density configurations.
The Relion 2808GT provides direct-to-chip liquid cooling to both of the Intel Xeon Processors along with eight NVIDIA K40 GPUs. This translates into the unit addressing 86 percent of total server heat while facility air cooling requirement is substantially reduced to 14 percent.
By reducing the air cooling requirement, an increased number of Relion 2808GT servers per rack is possible as well as decreasing data center rack footprint. This will deliver up 24 percent OPEX savings per year.
“Partnering with Penguin Computing on the ultra-dense Relion 2808GT showcases the cost benefits of liquid cooling in a real world application,” said Geoff Lyon, CEO/CTO CoollT Systems. “With close to immediate ROI and 25 percent+ decreases in operating expense we are able to achieve extreme densities and unparalleled performance for Penguin’s customers.”
