About the Event

Server and chip technologies continue to increase in power and speed. But these increases in performance also mean the servers of today (let alone tomorrow) generate more heat than ever before, with no signs of slowing down. As power consumption and heat generation continue to rise, the hot topic of discussion among data center owners and operators and others in the data center ecosystem is clear: can current data center cooling technologies keep up?

In this session, GRC CPO (Chief Product Officer) Ben Smith will share how GRC systems are cooling some of today’s hottest chips and take a look into the likely evolution of the server and Single Phase Immersion systems for the next generations of chips.

Following the presentation we will take a tour of the TACC supercomputing facility which has a mix of different systems using different cooling approaches, including the latest from GRC.
