Asperitas and partners present sustainable HPC data centre services at ISC 2019

12 Jun 2019 Haarlem - Immersed Computing solution provider Asperitas is partnering with data centre providers in various countries in Europe to provide high performance computing facilities based on the unique benefits of their liquid cooled high density compute solutions. During ISC 2019 in Frankfurt Asperitas will showcase three of such partnerships, with coolDC (UK), Bytesnet (NL) and Cloudnautic (DE).

For HPC users Asperitas is offering fully integrated high density compute solutions for CPU and GPU workloads designed, optimised and certified for immersion together with partners like Boston. During ISC 2018 the first solutions developed in partnership with Boston were presented and the partnerships with the HPC data centre providers on this year's show is a logical next step towards offering fully turnkey and managed HPC solutions and services.

Each provider is operating data centre facilities which are all ready to operate and in some cases specifically designed for the liquid cooled Immersed Computing solutions and concepts with a specific capability to house high density, performance and efficient compute. Immersed Computing is offering a high value regarding sustainability and the data centre providers operate some of the most efficient sustainable data centres in Europe.

All solutions provided by Asperitas can be warm water cooled and offer 100% of IT energy ready for reuse. The Immersed Computing technology developed by Asperitas is offering benefits throughout the full data centre value chain, from massive floorspace reduction, construction simplicity, practical no overhead energy up to high heat reuse potential. Asperitas is aiming to make use of the full potential of the technology with the HPC data centre provider partnerships.

Bytesnet is a data centre provider with two locations in The Netherlands offering a liquid cooled facility in Groningen which is energy efficient, capable of housing high density compute and there is the opportunity to connect to several heat reuse possibilities locally with district heating developments in the area. Bytesnet is offering HPC as a service to public and private organisations with their consortium partners including Asperitas.

Cloudnautic is a data centre provider to be launched in the second half of 2019, in Germany. Fully focused on HPC and specifically on AI applications. The modular facility design is based on Immersed Computing and will be supplied with wind generated renewable power from a local wind farm. Energy storage services will provide back-up power and with heat reuse possibilities nearby Cloudnautic is aiming to achieve one of the most efficient and sustainable datacentres in Germany. For HPC users from the German industry their facility could offer a real alternative to the Nordics.

coolDC is a newly built datacentre provider located in the Lincoln Science and Technology Park with a design fully based on liquid cooling and with an Immersed Computing system deployed already for one of their customers. coolDC recently won several awards for their energy efficiency and sustainability achievements including a European Code of Conduct award.

Asperitas is co-lead of the Advanced Cooling Solutions workgroup - part of Rack and Power - in the Open Compute Project (OCP) community and leading the immersion cooling activities since 2018. Recently the first deliverable from this workgroup, the first industry guidelines and standards on immersion cooling have been presented within a white paper . During ISC 2019 Asperitas is facilitating the OCP meeting point at their booth due to an increase in interest in the Advanced Cooling Solutions activities within the HPC community.
