PIC in Barcelona, Spain shares key performance and reliability results from its immersion cooled data-intensive cluster.

[April 19, 2017 – Austin, TX] Green Revolution Cooling (GRC), a leader in immersion cooling, today announced key performance and reliability results from its installation at Port d’Informació Científica (PIC) in Barcelona, Spain. The ultra-efficient cluster installed in October 2015 has since been used to process dozens of Petabytes of data from CERN's Large Hadron Collider, and leading-edge astrophysics projects.

Does IT really care about sustainability?

Posted by Peter Poulin on March 6, 2017

 

The Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Edge computing, and increased adoption of High Performance Computing (HPC) in commercial enterprises -- all these trends are putting new pressures on data center operators.  To make this tsunami of data useful and actionable requires enormous compute power. And, power is the operative word.  In the face of this need for more power, there is also a call for carbon footprint reduction.  But, does anyone really care about “greener” data centers?  Does anyone care enough to consider, if not revolutionary, than at least alternative, approaches to data center design?
