Analysis of a Distributed Liquid Cooling System at Purdue University Data Center

SESSION: Cooling Technologies I

EVENT TYPE: Exhibitor Forum

TIME: 10:30AM - 11:15AM

Presenter(s):Jeffrey Evans, Michael Gagnon

ROOM:WSCC 611/612

Energy management of high-performance computing (HPC) system data centers is evolving. The removal of heat generated by computing, networking, and storage equipment from the data center is changing from the practice of exclusively moving chilled air to also include the removal of heat by liquid cooling. In this case study, a liquid cooling system using rear door heat exchangers (RDHx) supported by coolant distribution units (CDU) will be analyzed. The pro’s and con’s of using this liquid cooling system will be outlined and the key decision criteria for deploying this cooling solution will be reviewed. The actual data center design will also be studied to show how the perceived risks of using liquid cooling can be overcome by an effective distributed layout. Lastly, the benefits of the liquid cooling system compared to an air-only data center cooling system will be evaluated in light of the University’s performance goals.
