High Performance Computing (HPC) and hyperscale data center growth is on the rise and customers relying solely on air-cooling face challenges in maintaining performance and efficiency. Dell EMC PowerEdge C6420 with CoolIT Systems liquid cooling can improve power and cooling efficiency in these large scale environments.
The Bedrock of Liquid Cooling
Purpose-built for high performance, hyperscale work-loads, PowerEdge C6420 allows customers to accelerate application and workload performance and reduce power costs while dramatically increasing rack density. Featuring 4 nodes in a 2U form factor, this robust server leverages CoolIT Systems’ rack-based Direct Contact Liquid Cooling technology (Rack DCLC) to support higher wattage processors for increased performance, energy efficiency, and rack-level density for today’s modern data centers.
Each 1U half-wide compute sled (1 node) includes dedicated liquid cooling to high wattage dual processors. The cold plate solution, designed and manufactured by CoolIT, uses room-temperature water to cool the CPUs, eliminating the need for chilled water and lowers overall energy costs by 56%. This impressive liquid cooled solution allows for approximately 26% more rack equipment using existing cooling infrastructure, making it perfect for installations with space constraints.
