(July 15, 2016) According to CBROnline.com, the “Institute of Railway Research has chosen a liquid cooled high-performance computer to run railway safety big data risk analysis.”
“The HPC called PetaGen 1C, immerses Intel server electronics in a non-flammable liquid coolant in order to provide dedicated computing sources for the IRR’s big data risk analysis research programme which is performed in conjunction with RSSB […which] represents the interests of 70 train operators, rolling stock owners, infrastructure providers and suppliers in the UK,” reported CBROnline. “The projects include vehicle and track monitoring, analysis of safety databases, risk identification, and safety operation investigations.”
“The liquid cooling allows the portable computer system to operate in virtual silence and deliver up to 7.5kW of computing power using blades housed in a cabinet that taken up less than one square metre of floor space,” according to CBROnline.
