If you thought Gigabyte only dealt with Motherboards, graphics cards and storage, think again. The company recently launched a series of high performance computing servers that pack single-phase liquid immersion cooling. This type of cooling has been shown to reduce total energy consumption of data centers by almost 30% or higher and also improve power usage efficiency (PUE) to below 1.1.
The company also announced and launched immersion cooling tanks that comply with EIA and OCP specifications, alongside an immersion ready server, G152-Z12. Gigabyte’s history of R&D and deployment experience in the field of immersion cooling, not to mention their servers and liquid cooling tank products mean that companies can harness these technologies to rapidly deploy high density, high compute data centers while also being eco-friendly, spearheading the digital transformation journey of companies looking to do so.
What are these new Cooling Solutions?
For starters, let’s look at the 25U EIA Tank. This has capacity for a single 21U rack along with four 1U (EIA) racks. The 18OU OCP Tank supports a single 18OU (OCP) rack, a 2OU (power chassis) rack, and two 1U (EIA) racks. These tanks have optimal support for Gigabyte’s recently announced immersion cooling ready servers, namely the G292-Z45, G292-Z43, G292-280, H262-Z6B and S251-3O0. The tank is capable of providing up to 80 kW of heat dissipation and takes up just a 2m x 0.9m footprint, making it an ideal solution for limited space.
Both the 25U and 180U are equipped with multiple sensors to monitor the liquid temperature around the server, and maintain an internal temperature of 35°C for the coolant. In addition, the backup pump ensures that if the primary pump malfunctions, the server can continue operations without interruption. The immersion cool ready servers also come with one-year international after-sales services from Gigabyte and the warranty can be extended as well.
GIGABYTE has also added a new G-series server, the G152-Z12 that not only supports a single 64-core AMD EPYC™ 7003 processor (280W TDP), but can also pack two dual-slot (rev.200) or four single-slot (rev.400) graphics cards, all in a 1U body. The G152-Z12 is compatible with GIGABYTE’s immersion cooling tanks to help customers quickly deploy green data centers. Also, the server is compatible with mainstream single-phase immersion cooling tanks in the market.
“GIGABYTE has always been focused on improving server performance. Today, in the face of cooling issues for CPUs and GPUs with higher and higher computing performance, we are not only working with industry-leading partners to help companies care for their operations and sustainable development, we have also developed single-phase immersion cooling products, allowing users to deploy green computing quickly.”Dandy Yeh, Founder and Chairperson of GIGABYTE
Due to the COIV-19 pandemic, businesses have had to rethink how their operations are carried out. Remote work has played a big part and large-scale remote work has been implemented. As such, the need for big data and cloud computing has seen a significant growth leading to “resilience challenges” for data centers of large companies. Simultaneously, Taiwan aims to be emission free by 2050, following the example of the United Nations. As such, they have realized the importance of reducing the power consumption of data centers as well as the ability to improve PUE.
“Net-zero emissions cannot be delayed. Our single-phase immersion cooling products are not only compact in size and comprehensive, allowing for fast deployment, but also able to reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) for our customers. We are able to overcome the traditional high costs associated with new data centers and become an accelerator for corporate net-zero emissions”Dandy Yeh
GIGABYTE possesses a complete server product line and a wealth of manufacturing experience, and has mastered the technology required for immersion cooling as customers’ demand for green computing continue to grow. In addition to offering the immersion cooling ready servers and cooling tanks, GIGABYTE is the first company to launch an off-the-shelf solution for immersion deployments.
