An agreement between Asetek and Signature Technology Group (STG), one of the largest data centre service providers in the industry, will enable data centre operators to equip newly purchased and previously installed servers with Asetek liquid cooling and maintain warranty support or opt for enhanced warranty coverage. The agreement with STG will extend or uplift existing warranties by Original Equipment Manufacturing (OEM) computer makers by giving data centre managers access to comprehensive service and support for new or retrofit systems, whether for the HPC market, or broader markets including enterprise IT and cloud computing.
‘STG will help Asetek to support not only new servers sales, but also the installed base of servers used in HPC and Enterprise IT,’ said David Garcia, Asetek’s vice president and general manager of the Data Center Business Unit. ‘STG is an industry leader with over 20-years of experience in hardware maintenance and IT support for data centre cooling. This agreement allows Asetek to stay focused on getting its technology to market while leveraging STG’s proven strengths in service and support.’
Asetek’s hot water, direct-to-chip, data centre liquid cooling technology, RackCDU, removes up to 80 per cent of the heat from servers with an all liquid path and rejects it into ambient outdoor air without chilling. This enables cooling cost reductions in excess of 50 per cent, density increases of 2.5 times, and recovery of all the server energy removed by RackCDU for reuse in facility heating and cooling.
