Motivair Extends Strategic Collaboration With Supermicro

BUFFALO, NY, Nov. 16, 2022 -- Motivair is pleased to announce its latest strategic collaboration with Supermicro (Nasdaq: SMCI) as they continue partnering to solve thermal challenges facing the High-Performance Computing and broader data center industry.

The two companies recently deployed a complete End-to-End direct liquid cooled system to a confidential client, leveraging Motivair’s Dynamic™ Cold Plate technology inside the popular Supermicro Big Twin server platform using 4th Generation Xeon Scalable processors also known as Sapphire Rapids.

An end-to-end solution helps solve the thermal challenge at the silicon level and just as importantly how that heat is efficiently and reliably transferred from the servers to the client’s central cooling system.

In this use case, the client deployed direct liquid cooled servers into an air-cooled data center lacking access to a central chilled water plant. Motivair’s Heat Dissipation Unit (HDU™)was used to transfer heat from the liquid cooled servers to the client’s air-cooled data center environment, resulting in a complete end-to-end thermal solution.

“This recent deployment highlights our long-held belief that solving advanced thermal challenges in HPC and supercomputing is bigger than just a great cooling technology at the chip level, the key is being able to solve the whole thermal equation – that’s what brings real value to the customer,” President and CEO Rich Whitmore said.

Motivair’s Dynamic™ Cold Plates offer thermal performance at +1,000 watts per processor and are uniquely suited for advanced silicon designs using Heterogenous System Architectures.

Motivair’s HDU™ allows customers to deploy direct liquid cooled servers inside air-cooled data centers when central water-cooling systems are not available.

Supermicro is a total IT solution provider for Cloud, AI/ML, Storage, and 5G/Edge.

Both companies will be exhibiting at the SC22, the international conference for high performance computing, networking, storage, and analysis in Dallas, TX from Sunday November 13th – Thursday November 17th. Examples of Motivair’s Dynamic™ Cold Plates will be on display at Supermicro Booth 1828 and Motivair Booth 1825.
