AXIS – Energy Saving, Performance Maximized Liquid Cooled HPC Solution.

Wednesday, March 25, 2020
ICC Joins forces with AMD and ASETEK to deliver flexible, proven and reliable rack-level liquid cooled solutions for HPC with increased density and 80kW CDU capacity per rack.
NORTHBROOK, Illinois – March 25, 2020. International Computer Concepts (ICC), a leading systems integrator of enterprise-level computing solutions, now offers a complete HPC server solution that incorporates Asetek liquid cooling technology and AMD EPYC™ 7002 Series Processor, to increase compute performance and density, while decreasing energy consumption in liquid cooled data centers.
The ICC AXISTM servers incorporate custom direct-to-chip (D2C) coolers for dramatic increase in data center density and maximum sustained CPU throughput. Asetek D2C cooling loops capture between 60-80% of server heat, which is rejected by the InRackCDU, a warm water-cooling distribution unit capable of removing up to 80kW of heat per rack. “ICC’s new custom liquid cooling solution enables high performance AMD processors in clusters with high interconnect densities, while reducing overall data center cooling costs,” noted ICC’s Director of Development, Alexey Stolyar, “the energy saving and maximized performance is uniquely suited for the HPC environments.”
Liquid cooling can reduce TCO by as much as 40-50% when compared to forced-air cooling. Without need to provision power for fans at maximum speed, system fans run at a minimum and result in a reduced noise profile compared to typical air-cooled servers. The InRackCDU transfers the heat captured by the D2C cooling loops to facilities water in a highly efficient all liquid path. Details of the ICC liquid cooled rack-level AXIS™ solution are below.
