Vertiv has introduced the Liebert XDU, a new generation of thermal management systems that supports liquid-cooled servers and enables the control of liquid quality, flow and pressure.
As high-density computing applications, such as data analytics and Machine Learning increase, rack densities and temperatures are exceeding the cooling capabilities of traditional air-cooled units and require more efficient and sustainable solutions. The Liebert XDU coolant distribution system enables the deployment of liquid-cooled server applications into any data centre environment, from core to Edge Computing sites.
“High-performance computing applications such as Artificial Intelligence and Augmented Reality are growing in popularity at the same time that data centres are working to reduce their energy consumption and pushing the industry to find new, more sustainable solutions,” said Roberto Felisi, Senior Global Director and EMEA Business Leader for Thermal Management, Vertiv.
The Liebert XDU is an innovative liquid-to-liquid cooling distribution unit available in two capacities, 450kW and a model capable of up to 1368kW, circulating water through liquid-cooled server racks and rejecting the heat from the returning warm water. The system uses a closed water loop to avoid any waste and is capable of capturing heat to utilise it to warm nearby offices, homes or farms, supporting the circular economy.Click below to share this article
