The energy needed to power and cool data centers traditionally dwarfs the cost of the equipment itself. Direct contact liquid cooling (DCLC) can reduce cooling energy costs by 56%, according to CoolIT Systems’ CEO and CTO Geoff Lyons.
“The demand has been increasing over time for faster and faster processors,” Lyons says. “With higher power comes more heat, and the most efficient way to transfer it away from the process is to put direct contact liquid cooling right on the chip.”
In the video, Lyons shares how you can facilitate peak performance for higher powered processors, improve energy efficiency, increase density and save space with CoolIT liquid cooling systems, with Dell EMC PowerEdge servers.
Lyons explains how CoolIT Systems’ Rack DCLC CHx80 is architected for Dell EMC PowerEdge servers. The coolant heat exchanger is capable of dissapating up to 80kW. The heat from the Dell EMC PowerEdge servers is transferred into the building water. Some customers even use the waste heat to heat adjacent building or melt snow from sidewalks.
