SlideSX®-LC offers efficient direct cooling for HPC compute nodes with the highest performance Intel® Xeon® CPUs, combining maximum compute performance with minimum space thanks to the high power density.
Direct water cooling permits direct extraction of the heat produced in the compute nodes. Each compute node slot in the liquid cooling (LC) model is fitted with a cooling unit for direct liquid cooling.
Liquid-cooled elements directly transfer the waste heat from each component into the water circuit. Thus, the fanless compute nodes save energy and reduce noise emission in the data centre. The system operates at high water temperatures and therefore allows for energy-efficient free cooling throughout the year. The waste heat can be re-useto produce hot water or support the existing heating infrastructure.
SlideSX®-LC is just as service-friendly as the air-cooled version. Each of the directly cooled compute nodes can be removed and reintegrated by hotswap for maintenance purposes. The system is connected to the cooling circuit via automatic leak-free connectors in the backplane.
SlideSX® ist Intel® Cluster Ready certified.
