SC19: Exascale-Class CDUs, Modular HPC Data Centers Launched

DENVER, Colorado – Attendees will have the chance to learn more about the future of Exascale Cooling and Modular HPC Data Centers this November at Motivair Corporations’ booth – 243 – at SC19 Nov. 18-22.

Motivair will exhibit a wide range of its Data Center and IT Cooling technology at the upcoming Denver show, including the ChilledDoor®, several Coolant Distribution Units (CDU), and information about its new turnkey Modular HPC Data Centers.

Motivair’s technology will play an integral role in the next three US-based exascale supercomputers – the recently announced El Capitan for Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory; Aurora at Argonne National Laboratory; and Frontier at Oak Ridge National Laboratory – being delivered in 2021 and 2023.

Motivair’s Exascale CDU, which will cool three upcoming US-based exascale computers, bolsters the full line of CDUs for use with our ChilledDoor® or other IT computer cooling systems.

“This marks a milestone both in computing power but also in the way they are cooled, a coveted title held by Motivair but earned through the hard work and dedication of our entire team,” said Motivair President and CEO Rich Whitmore. “Our Exascale-Class CDUs and supporting products now stand unparalleled on the global stage touting advanced control and communication functions as well as benchmarked thermal performance that exceeded our highest expectations."
