Challenges with Liquid Cooling - a Look Into The Future of HPC Data Centers

SESSION: Challenges with Liquid Cooling - a Look Into The Future of HPC Data Centers


TIME: 3:30PM - 5:00PM

Panelists:Torsten Wilde, Michael Patterson, Thomas Blum, Jean-Pierre Panziera, Paul Arts, Nicolas Dubé, Ingmar Meijer, Josip Loncaric



Liquid cooling is key to dealing with the heat density, reducing energy consumption, and increasing the performance of this generation of supercomputers and becomes even more predominant on the roadmap for the foreseeable future. The transition to liquid cooling, however, comes with challenges.

One challenge is that each system and each site comes with its specific issues regarding liquid cooling. These complicate procurements, design, installation, operations, and maintenance.

This panel will review the immediate past history from a lessons learned perspective as well as discuss what’s needed for liquid cooling to be implemented more readily in the future. This includes challenges such as data and metrics to assess the relative efficiencies of the different cooling technologies, water quality, heat recovery, the disparity between building life and cluster life, and other issues.

How can we as a community address these challenges?
