    Liquid Cooling Quick Disconnect Connectors for High Performance Computing (HPC)

    Computing Power is Critical

    The demand to solve extremely complex problems in shorter amounts of time often requires the use of artificial intelligence, multi-level simulations, sophisticated data crunching and/or modeling. These rigorous applications necessitate the use of high-performance computers with dense CPU and GPU configurations. Extremely dense HPC clusters are often operating at full capacity for long periods of time — in order to keep these high performance computing applications running successfully, liquid cooling is essential.

    Top Challenges for HPCs

    • 100% uptime
    • Lower energy consumption
    • Increase sustainability
    • Ease of maintenance
    • Reduce costs
    • Keep pace with new technology

    Managing Heat is Critical

    High-performance computer processing power is increasing all the time. Simultaneously, components are becoming smaller and denser, creating more heat which needs to be dissipated. Using significantly higher wattage densities, HPCs can see an increase in energy usage to 80kW and beyond. To manage the heat generated by the higher wattage densities, liquid cooling for these high-performance computers is essential. By lowering processor temperatures through liquid cooling, operators can realize a 4% reduction in compute solution times and minimize latency by maximizing cluster interconnect density.

    Liquid Cooling Supports HPC Green Objectives

    Liquid cooling offers the ability to reduce computer power consumption, which in turn reduces fossil fuel consumption. This can further lead to reduced CO2 emissions and can play a vital role in protecting the planet for generations to come.
