Data Centre Cooling technologies
The data centre designed for traditional airflow-based cooling and implement Hot or Cold aisle containment.
Direct Liquid Cooling
Traditional solutions implemented in most data centres use air as a medium to remove the heat from the servers and computing equipment and are not well suited to cutting-edge high-density HPC environments due to the limited thermal capacity of air. The replacement of air with liquid cooling medium allows to drastically improve energy-efficiency as well as the density of the implemented solution, espcially with Direct Contact Liquid Cooling (DCLC) where the heat from the IT Components is directly transferred to a liquid cooling medium through liquid-cooled plates.
The PARAM UTKARSH is based on the fan-less ATOS BullSequana X1120/X1125 blade servers and relies on the water-cooled configuration.
