Emerging Technologies: DOME Hot-Water Cooled MicroDataCenter
TimeThursday, November 16th10am - 6pm
DescriptionOur DOME microDataCenter is a complete datacenter-in-a-box, consisting of compute, storage, communication, power and cooling in the densest known packaged result. It is 20-fold denser than current datacenter technology, effectively compacting an entire server rack into a single 2U rack-unit with the same delivered aggregate compute performance. The DOME microDataCenter uses commodity parts and standards and has no moving parts. It was designed from ground up by ASTRON and IBM research, targeting SKA, and is being brought to market by ila-microservers which was incorporated Jan 2017. It recently won the HPC Data Center Innovation Award from IDC HPC (now hyperion research). ILA plans to start shipping a qualified product early 2018 (Orders can be placed this year for pre-production evaluation systems). The salient features are 1) very energy efficient, 2) high reliability (no fans or rotating drives), 3)Hot-water cooling allowing to capture and resell up to 80% of the electricity costs, 4) high density. The 2U rack-unit contains two 32-way carriers from yielding 64 servers with up to 1536 cores, 1.5Tbyte memory and 64TB storage with a TDP of 1500W. We will run various applications live including HPL and the our new BlueBild imager.
