STULZ USA Announces Strategic Investment and Commercial Partnership with CoolIT Systems
High density Chip-to-Atmosphere data center solutions to be partnership focus
Frederick, MD. May 24, 2016 – Leading global mission critical cooling solutions provider, STULZ, through its U.S. entity STULZ Air Technology Systems, Inc. (STULZ USA), has engaged in a strategic investment and commercial partnership with CoolIT Systems, Inc. (CoolIT), the leading global manufacturer of energy efficient Direct Liquid cooling technologies for High Performance Computing (HPC), Cloud and Enterprise markets.
The commercial partnership will enable the two companies to cooperate closely in delivering unique Chip-to-Atmosphere solutions across the globe. Both parties remain independently owned and operated.
“STULZ has identified Chip-to-Atmosphere cooling solutions as a growing market segment for data center environments,” said Joerg Desler, President of STULZ USA. “This alliance with CoolIT allows us to offer customers more complete solutions that involve capturing the heat at source inside the servers and moving it out to the atmosphere with STULZ technology.”
CoolIT’s Rack DCLC technology uses the exceptional thermal conductivity of liquid to provide concentrated cooling to the hottest components inside a server, enabling very high density configurations. CoolIT’s centralized pumping liquid cooling solutions can be tailored to any server layout and have already been adopted by many server manufacturers as a reliable technology that is covered under standard warranties.
“Partnering with such an influential solution provider as STULZ provides a tremendous worldwide capacity to our company,” said Geoff Lyon, CEO & CTO at CoolIT Systems. “This strategic relationship increases our ability to better serve the data center industry with forward thinking designs, solutions and services.”
