CoolBitts Immersion Cooling Solutions for Small-Scale Computing Environments

CoolBitts takes aim at a large industrial computing base facing a stark reality: continued growth in silicon density, power consumption and heat production makes the switch to immersion cooling inevitable. Intended as a platform

for experimentation and evaluation of immersion cooling technologies, the CoolBitts ICEbox line is ideal for high-performance PC manufacturers and data center engineers who are considering strategies for moving to immersion cooling.

as small of a space as possible. That is driven by different developments such as space constraints. For example, in dense urban environments like Amsterdam, space for datacentres is scarce at the moment so the less space they can use the better.’ However, Bouricius also

notes that immersion provides a platform that is hardware agnostic and this is also driving new customers to explore this technology in a time of hardware diversity in HPC.

‘I think a core element of our proposition where this diversity of hardware, scenarios and applications is not dependent anymore on the facility technology and the cooling technology as well,’ he said. ‘You do not have to

change the cooling technology anymore for different kinds of hardware components. For us it does not matter whether it is a GPU, CPU or FPGA. For us, as a solution provider, it does not matter at all and I think that is the main driver of immersion technology compared to the other liquid-based technologies.’ Bouricius also noted that, while liquid cooling technology was driven by cooling certain components in a server or a rack. In the case of Asperitas, or in immersion cooling in general, the advantage is flexibility for the end-user while they are still experimenting with diverse types of hardware. ‘In that scenario then immersion is ideal because it is basically a datacentre in a box,’ he added. | @scwmagazine

Designed for the circulation and transfer of fluids, GRI’s Integrity Series Pumps offer a flexible, safe and robust solution to moving fluid in critical high-tech OEM applications. Equipped with an

integrated brushless-DC variable speed motor, with ranges of 12 to 48 volts, these seal-less, motor integrated centrifugal pumps incorporate the components into a compact, lightweight design. Fewer parts promote long life, quiet operation, and low power consumption, making the Integrity Series ideal for pumping fluid coolant in

Addressing sustainability WIth increasingly beefy computing systems and power consumption rising in both new CPUs and GPUs the question of sustainability of datacentre technologies is still in question. As Langer notes, this is not necessarily the primary need of people building a new cluster. ‘The question of sustainability often takes a back seat to economics in the real world. The tipping point of datacentres using liquid cooling is happening now because it is more efficient (and subsequently cheaper) to cool with liquid cooling. Early campuses did not require liquid cooling as the heat generated by the computing simply wasn’t there,’ stated Langer.

Data Centers and Electronic Cooling applications. Unlike its competition, GRI

manufactures the pump’s brushless-DC motors, along with the majority of the components, in-house. Our vertical integration provides the ability to customize a pump’s motor to an OEM’s specific flow and pressure performance requirements. GRI collaborates with

OEM engineers who are unable to fulfill their unique pump requirements with an off-the-shelf solution necessitating a custom- engineered pump specific to their application.

‘Converting sites from air

cooling to liquid cooling can cost thousands of dollars so the ROI has to be there. The infrastructure that has been built to accommodate air cooling systems is not necessarily ideal for liquid cooling. Raised floors have weight limitations after all so in upgrading to a liquid cooling system, the weight of each element is a consideration. CPC has developed a line of lightweight fittings specifically for liquid cooling thus enabling data centres to keep the rack density they are accustomed to,’ she (Elizabeth Langer) added. CPC’s develops fittings or quick disconnects (QDs) which are purpose-built and designed for liquid cooling of electronics. ‘CPC’s robust LQ g
