We are proud to be selected for this important work and anticipate that the results will showcase the energy saving impact that liquid cooling can deliver.

Calgary, Alberta (PRWEB) November 14, 2013

A new collaboration between CoolIT Systems, Canada, and the Schools of Computing and Mechanical Engineering at University of Leeds (member of the prestigious Russell Group of 24 research-intensive universities) has been setup to analyse the influence of proximity liquid cooling on cloud based workload algorithms. The University has already received awards for analysis and development of Green IT solutions in the past couple of years.

CoolIT’s Rack DCLC™ is being installed at the University to enhance their research into energy-efficient aspects of data centres, by combing the research expertise from two disciplines to understand the interaction of cloud scheduling algorithms (extensively tested on Google datasets) with a fine controlled direct contact liquid cooling methodology.

The CoolIT 45U Rack DCLC™ is now located in their new prestigious Energy building, which is a hub of energy-efficient technology research, including studies of the re-use of low grade heat from data centres, a technology that is feasible with liquid-based cooling solutions such as our system.

“Working with an esteemed University that is equipped to truly quantify the benefits of liquid cooling is very exciting,“ said Geoff Lyon, CEO & CTO CoolIT Systems. “We are proud to be selected for this important work and anticipate that the results will showcase the energy saving impact that liquid cooling can deliver for real world installations.”
