Custom Liquid Cooling System for Data Centers

(June 2, 2016) “A special unit within Dell that makes custom tech for operators of the world’s largest data centers, has designed a water-based system for cooling custom server chips it developed” for eBay with Intel Corp. and eBay itself, reported DataCenterKnowledge.com.

The custom liquid cooling system follows an atypical design, according to DataCenterKnowledge, “It brings water from the facility’s cooling towers directly to every chip inside server chassis. There are no central distribution units, which typically sit between cooling towers and server racks in liquid-cooled data centers.”

It also uses water that is “warmer than usual. The system, now deployed at one of eBay’s data centers, uses water that’s 33 degrees Celsius – because the customized CPUs run at very high frequency – but if Triton (the codename for the unique aspect) is used with lower-power CPUs, supply water temperature can be as high as 60 degrees Celsius,” said Austin Shelnutt, principal thermal engineer at Dell.
