State grant enables energy-saving retrofit of Lawrence Livermore computing clusters
12 Nov 2015 Livermore - Supercomputers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) will be retrofitted with liquid cooling systems under a California Energy Commission (CEC) grant to assess potential energy savings. According to LLNL, Asetek has received a $3.5 million grant from the CEC for retrofits at two California HPC centers. A second yet-to-be-disclosed California data center also will be retrofitted under the grant next year. Energy savings and the associated cost reductions are critical to data centers and supercomputing facilities around the world, LLNL says.
