Green Revolution Computing's VC-3/ the third iteration of the Vienna Scientific Cluster, is reporting a mechanical Power Utilization Effectiveness (mPUE) of 1.02, making it one of the most efficient data center facilities in the world. Green Revolution Cooling's commercial product for using liquid cooling, a technology pioneered by the Tokyo Institute of Technology TSUBAME-KFC thar ranked first in the Green TOP500 in June 2014. The supercomputing cluster VSC-3, was installed in 2014, after a tender process that accounted for the total cost of ownership of various technologies. Green Revolution Cooling, Intel, ClusterVision, and Supermicro did win the tender. The Vienna Scientific Cluster (VSC) consists of several cluster systems that have been designed to satisfy the demand for High Performance Computing (HPC) of a consortium of Austrian universities.

The Computing for Clean Water team has discovered how water can pass through tiny carbon nanotubes much more easily than previously predicted. This groundbreaking understanding of a fundamental physical process holds potential for improving access to clean water for millions through more efficient water filtration and desalination, as well as possible applications in clean energy and medicine. This discovery has been published in Nature Nanotechnology, the world's most prestigious nanotechnology journal. Read further...
