As environmental protection is becoming a pressing issue in recent years due to climate change and global warming, data centers – which traditionally consume a huge amount of electricity – are being designed to better meet the goals of energy efficiency and carbon reduction. When a national aerospace center in Europe wanted to expand their data center, with a requirement for servers that could maintain normal operation in an ambient temperature environment of 40°C without the need for air conditioning systems, GIGABYTE’s server team provided a solution with Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI), combining compute, storage and networking into a single system, and equipped with liquid cooling technology to successfully overcome the harsh high temperature environment, enabling the data center to efficiently process an enormous amount of space-related research data within a limited space.
GIGABYTE can now offer various server platforms with liquid cooling technology, such as direct-to-chip liquid cooling (liquid to liquid or liquid to air), one-phase oil immersion or two-phase liquid immersion technologies. Liquid cooling systems can support a greater density of CPUs and GPUs, enabling better compute performance in a given amount of space, as well as helping customers to reduce their power consumption for cooling infrastructure, to achieve a better data center PUE.
GIGABYTE has joined forces with Allied Control and 3M to offer a Two-Phase Liquid Immersion Cooling solution, allowing customers to drastically reduce their data center energy consumption and improve Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE), radically reducing operating costs and environmental impact.
