High Performance Computing (HPC) and hyperscale data center growth is on the rise and customers relying solely on air-cooling face challenges in maintaining performance and efficiency. Dell EMC PowerEdge C6420 with CoolIT Systems liquid cooling can improve power and cooling efficiency in these large scale environments.
Purpose-built for high performance, hyperscale work-loads, PowerEdge C6420 allows customers to accelerate application and workload performance and reduce power costs while dramatically increasing rack density. Featuring 4 nodes in a 2U form factor, this robust server leverages CoolIT Systems’ rack-based Direct Contact Liquid Cooling technology (Rack DCLC) to support higher wattage processors for increased performance, energy efficiency, and rack-level density for today’s modern data centers.
Each 1U half-wide compute sled (1 node) includes dedicated liquid cooling to high wattage dual processors. The cold plate solution, designed and manufactured by CoolIT, uses room-temperature water to cool the CPUs, eliminating the need for chilled water and lowers overall energy costs by 56%. This impressive liquid cooled solution allows for approximately 26% more rack equipment using existing cooling infrastructure, making it perfect for installations with space constraints.
