CoolIT calls for watercooling standards for servers

CoolIT will be present at the International Supercomputing Show in Leipzig Germany next week, where it will push for the creation of liquid cooling technology standards for servers:
CoolIT Systems, a leading supplier of direct contact liquid cooling (DCLC) solutions for high-performance desktops, enterprise servers and data centers, will present a session titled “Building Liquid Cooling Technology Standards” at the International Supercomputing Show in Leipzig Germany next week.

The inspiration for this session stems from the growing demand for liquid cooling in the data center. Experts agree that only liquid can deliver the necessary cooling efficiency to enable high density computing while reducing the power consumption needed to cool the data center. The benefits of liquid cooling have been documented for years but there has been some obstacles preventing widespread adoption. For example, system integrators build servers, infrastructure companies build racks and cooling containment, and facility managers spec the building requirements. Each of these very different players contributes to an overall solution but there has been very little standardization of equipment other than rack dimensions and electrical connections.
