CES Group and Eaton-Williams Display Next-Generation High Density Cooling System at SC14 Conference

Dec 18 2014

Eden Prairie, MN (December 18, 2014)—A record-breaking crowd at the Supercomputing 2014 conference saw the next generation of high density cooling solutions from CES Group and its server_coolaffiliate Eaton-Williams, which are ideally suited to high performance computing. This year’s Supercomputing 2014 marked the 26th anniversary conference of high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis and drew 10,198 registered attendees.

A ServerCool® active rear door heat exchanger and cooling distribution unit from Eaton-Williams was displayed in the CES Group booth. “This ServerCool system represents the latest technology for high density cooling,” said Mark Luxford, ServerCool general manager of Eaton-Williams. “It offers both efficiency and reliability to help data center operators reduce power usage effectiveness (PUE) while delivering the precise temperature and humidification control required by high performance data centers.”

Eaton-Williams rear door heat exchangers (RDHx) provide 100% heat rejection at source and up to 65kW of cooling per rack. Available RDHx models include active, passive and microchannel doors. The Cooling Distribution Units (CDUs) deliver close controlled water cooling for up to 20 rear door heat exchangers. The CDU absorbs only 4kW of power and will deliver up to 305kW of cooling. In addition, the CDU has N+1 reliability built in and if two CDUs are used in tandem, can provide Tier 4 resilience.

The ServerCool high density cooling system is just one of the full line of data center solutions from CES Group, which has been providing cooling systems and applications expertise for mission critical facilities for more than 30 years.
