Case Study

CHIME Modular Datacenter

The HPC nodes at CHIME reside directly adjacent to a radio telescope in sealed containers that function as Faraday cages to prevent leakage of electromagnetic interference from the servers. The CHIME collaboration realized early in its planning process that cooling the GPU intensive servers with traditional air conditioning would be difficult and costly, and turned to our team to deliver a high-density liquid cooling solution.

The full deployment includes:

  • 26x racks with direct liquid cooled custom 4u servers
  • 26x CoolIT rack based Coolant Distribution Units
  • 26x Stainless steel Rack Manifolds
  • Liquid cooled components:
    • CPUs: Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2620 v3
    • GPUs: Dual AMD FirePro S9300x2
    • Custom secondary fluid network above the racks
