Aalborg, Denmark, 26 June 2017 – Asetek today announced a further order from Penguin Computing, an established data center OEM, for an undisclosed HPC (High Performance Computing) installation.
“This repeat order reflects our strong partnership with Penguin Computing. It is also another confirmation of the increasing need for liquid cooling in high density HPC clusters,” said André Sloth Eriksen, CEO and founder of Asetek.
On Friday 23 June, Asetek and Penguin Computing announced that Asetek was selected to provide liquid cooling for NVIDIA’s P100 GPU accelerators, the most advanced GPUs yet produced by NVIDIA, as part of Penguin's Tundra ES (Extreme Scale) platform.
Today’s follow-on order is for Asetek’s RackCDU Direct-to-Chip (D2C) liquid cooling solution and includes additional loops to cool NVIDIA’s P100 GPU accelerators.
The order has a value of USD 140,000 with delivery to be completed in Q3 2017.
Asetek signed a global purchasing agreement with Penguin Computing in 2015.
