Cray Unveils Energy Efficient Cooling Tech
Cray Inc. today unveiled a liquid cooling technology that will allow computers to operate at speeds of multiple petaflops (thousands of trillions of calculations per second), while delivering energy savings and installation flexibility.
The new ECOphlex technology promotes energy savings by enabling greater system density, reducing the need for expensive air cooling and air conditioners, and limiting the need for chilled water.
ECOphlex is designed to be “room air neutral,” meaning that the temperature of the air entering the system is roughly the same as the temperature of the air exiting the system. In a recent test at a government site, Cray says ECOphlex technology removed 100 percent of the heat.
The new technology will begin shipping with Cray XT5 systems later this year.
