Motivair and Indiana University Advance World-Class Research

Indiana University's Big Red 200 was dedicated as part of IU's Bicentennial Jan. 20. The system, now the state's fastest supercomputer, is cooled by Motivair's Coolant Distribution Units and ChilledDoors with custom graphics.

The system will help support the university’s advanced research in artificial intelligence, machine learning, data analytics, and scientific and medical research.

According to IU, it would take everyone in the state of Indiana more than 28 years—performing one calculation per second 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year—to perform the same number of calculations that Big Red 200 can do in just one second. It is almost 300 times faster than the original Big Red supercomputer from 15 years ago.

"We are honored to see our CDU technology and our ChilledDoors help Indiana University push the boundaries of computing to advance world-class research," Motivair CEO Rich Whitmore said.
