High-performance computing (HPC) is key to solving large complex problems in science, engineering and business environments.
It requires a significant increase in rack density when compared to business-as-usual servers.
HPC is usually cooled through non-conventional means as it surpasses the effective cooling limit of the traditional underfloor DX airflow distribution.
It is commonly cooled through the use of rear door heat exchangers (RDHX) although there are many “alternative” solutions.
Some new HPC equipment is cooled via liquid to chip systems which distribute water to a heatsink installed directly onto the CPUs.
Total immersion solutions are a growing trend with many companies beginning to offer their own variants.
It is recommended that all UPSs are checked and serviced once a year to ensure that they work when required. It’s not just internal components of a UPS that require checking, the inside of a UPS also needs cleaning as dust particles can build up inside the unit.
