St. Albans, United Kingdom (November, 16, 2014) - Boston Limited, now in its 22nd year of providing partners with first-to-market technologies and award-winning tailored solutions, will be exhibiting at the 2014 Supercomputing conference at the Ernest N. Morial Conventions Center, New Orleans, November 17 - 20. Boston, in partnership with CoolIT Systems at stand #3457, Boston Ltd will be demonstrating its CPU & GPU liquid cooled cluster featuring CoolIT's Rack DCLC™ AHx20 (direct contact liquid cooling) technology delivering the highest performance per WATT.
Boston Limited will be demonstrating a rack-based liquid cooling solution that enables high-performance and high-density clusters anywhere, without the requirement for facility liquid to be plumbed to the rack. This solution allows both the processors and GPU accelerators' heat output to be directly absorbed into circulating liquid which then efficiently transports the heat to the unique AHx20 liquid-to-air heat exchanger mounted on the top of the rack. This stand-alone rack solution is modular and is compatible with any rack-computing set-up, enabling ultra-high density clusters to be deployed quickly and easily.
CoolIT's Rack DCLC™ technology utilised is a three module approach (server, manifold and heat exchanger) that allows for a tremendous amount of product flexibility when integrating liquid cooling. Rack DCLC™ modules are designed for a flexible fit to various compute environments. While server modules and Manifold modules are installed with each system and are local to the rack, the appropriate heat rejection method may vary. Rack DCLC™ offers a variety of heat exchanging modules depending on load requirements and availability of facility water.
Boston demonstrated CoolIT's Rack DCLC™ AHx20 technology at this year's ISC event in July in conjunction with the University of Edinburgh as part of the student cluster competition. Thanks to the extreme energy efficiency of the Boston solution, the EPCC team were able to win the LINPACK challenge with a score in excess of 10TFLOPS for only 3kW of power consumption. If scaled, this would have reached number 4 in the Green500 list.
The ISC'14 student cluster competition was world's first public demonstration of this new technology which was the result of over a year's research, design and engineering - something Boston is now delighted to make available to customers looking for ultimate energy efficiency and performance.
Attendees are invited to visit stand #3457 to discuss how the Boston liquid cooled cluster and CoolIT Systems can help make your IT goals a reality.
