CoolIT Systems liquid cools Intel 'Cherry Creek' supercomputer for UNLV deployment at SUPERNAP to boost scientific research

3 Oct 2014 Calgary - Technology industry experts Intel and Switch SUPERNAP have partnered to bring Cherry Creek, one of the world's most powerful supercomputers that's liquid cooled by CoolIT Systems to the University Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV).

Developed in collaboration with Intel and SuperMicro, Cherry Creek first featured live at the Supercomputing Conference 2013 and delivered 131.5 TFLOPS at only 74kW of power. Cherry Creek was cooled using CoolIT's Direct Contact Liquid Cooling (DCLC) system with an AHx35 pumping and heat exchanger component. This placed Cherry Creek 400th on the 2013 TOP500 Supercomputer Sites list and 41st on the 2013 Green500 list of the world's most energy efficient supercomputers at that time.

This special computer is now housed in Switch's Las Vegas SUPERNAP data centre and available to UNLV researchers through SUPERNAP's unique connectivity network. The Cherry Creek supercomputer gives the university and its research partners access to world-class computing power and provides for scientific discovery, the innovation of applications, and regional economic development efforts.

The Cherry Creek supercomputer is seven times faster in processing data than the supercomputer currently used by UNLV researchers, owing to the combination of Intel® Xeon processors, Xeon Phi coprocessors, and Intel True Scale Fabric that Cherry Creek uses.
