June 26th, 2014 – Asetek® announced today that it has received a purchase order for its RackCDU™ data center liquid cooling system placed by one of its Original Equipment Manufacturing (OEM) partners for immediate delivery. The order is the largest Asetek has received so far on its RackCDU products with a value of approximately $350,000, and includes liquid cooling for 29 racks.
The order is for an undisclosed top US federal HPC data center and will be one of the largest warm water data center liquid cooling installations in the world. The liquid cooling loops will cool and remove all heat from the processors and ensure the cluster maintains maximum energy efficiency and performance while keeping operating costs at a minimum.
“As predicted, building an OEM based business on a new and disruptive technology takes time and stamina. As such, it is rewarding to see our hard work and strategy pay off with this order. The order is a direct result of our business development activities towards end users and in close cooperation with one of our OEM customers,” said André Sloth Eriksen, Founder and CEO of Asetek.
“We still have a way to go before our business model and market adoption rates are where we want them, but this order makes it appropriate to talk about a significant installation. The delivery is to take place as one big shipment and, therefore, it is a good opportunity to optimize and test our manufacturing setup,” Eriksen continued.
RackCDU is Asetek’s innovative hot water, direct-to-chip, data center liquid cooling technology, which removes heat from CPUs, GPUs, memory modules and other hot spots within servers, using an all-liquid path and rejecting the heat into ambient outdoor air without chilling. As validated by Lawrence Berkeley National Labs, RackCDU enables cooling savings in excess of 50%, density increases of 2.5x to 5.0x, and recovery of all the server energy removed by RackCDU for reuse in facility heating and cooling.
Asetek is the world leading provider of energy efficient liquid cooling systems for data centers, servers, workstations, gaming and high performance PCs. Its products are used for reducing power and greenhouse emissions, lowering acoustic noise, and achieving maximum performance by leading OEMs and channel partners around the globe.
