Extending the viability of air-cooling

For organizations operating high-performance data centers, cooling is a significant challenge. High-end processor TDPs are also climbing with each generation, and we are rapidly approaching the point where air-cooling will become infeasible. Liquid cooling is an obvious answer but brings new challenges, including cost, maintenance issues, and concerns about leakage and safety.

In a recent whitepaper and article published to HPCwire, I discuss the pros and cons of air vs. liquid cooling in HPC and explain how the latest Intel CPUs can help you delay the need for liquid cooling.
