CoolIT Systems (CoolIT), in partnership with STULZ, today announced a liquid cooled micro data center for High Performance Computing (HPC) applications. The unified solution, named STULZ Micro DC, combines CoolIT’s industry-leading efficient Direct Contact Liquid Cooling technology (Rack DCLC™) with STULZ’ world-renowned mission critical air cooling products to create a single enclosed solution for managing high-density compute requirements.
The liquid cooled STULZ Micro DC manages 100% of the IT load into liquid and is room neutral. With the Micro DC, users can scale from traditional IT workloads to more than 80kW of IT into each system (depending on configuration). The stand-alone solution incorporates all the key components in a specified enclosure, including the rack, liquid cooling, cable management, UPS, power monitoring, and fire protection systems. CoolIT Systems Rack DCLC™ technology captures 60-80% of the entire server heat load, while the remaining 20%- 40% is air cooled by an integral STULZ precision cooling unit contained inside the Micro DC. Configurations can also be purpose-built to include various options for heat rejection and reuse.
“The Micro DC is a compact data center that can be easily deployed in any environment while managing an incredible amount of power and performance,” said Joerg Desler, President of STULZ USA. “It’s modular system is configured to use various combinations of liquid and air cooling allowing the system to grow with the customer’s needs. Integrating STULZ technology with CoolIT Systems Rack DCLC™ has resulted in ultra-efficient total thermal solutions that can support any OEM server at even the highest density configurations.”
“The liquid cooled STULZ Micro DC is a self-contained, cost-efficient,…
