CoolIT combines with Ciara to deliver HPC Rack
CALGARY, Alberta, Canada – November 08, 2012
CoolIT Systems Inc, the leading supplier of liquid cooling solutions for high-performance desktops, enterprise servers, and high-performance clusters has teamed up with Montreal’s Ciara Technologies Inc. in the Demand Liquid Alliance to use Rack Direct Contact Liquid Cooling to enable unparalleled performance at the CPU and GPU level.
Experienced with CoolIT’s technology , Ciara is once again looking to harness liquid cooling to push the boundaries of computing productivity. “We are overclocking our CPU’s in a 1u chassis allowing for densities never seen before. Our customers are demanding unprecedented compute productivity and CoolIT’s Rack DCLC allows us to deliver”, said Darcy Letemplier, VP of Engineering, Ciara Technologies. Rack DCLC is allowing Ciara to build and test server architecture in a 1u form factor that was previously only available in a 3u chassis.
By allowing for a 67% increase in compute density per rack, Ciara’s new overclocked server architecture will not only allow for more compute productivity per core; but will also allow customers to fit high-powered clusters in much smaller space.
“We are amazed at the performance levels that Ciara has been able to achieve once the cooling limitations were removed. The Ciara engineering team has taken an innovative approach with their hardware decisions and by leveraging the liquid cooling advantage, they have created a unique offering for the High Performance Computing market.” Geoff Lyon, CEO & CTO, CoolIT Systems.
