As Motivair starts the new year, we like to take a small look back at 2022 and see what you found to be the most popular insights. Here are the top five blog posts from 2022:
Understanding End-to-End Liquid Cooling for HPC & AI
Fueled by ever-rising consumer need for e-commerce, big data applications, and the explosive growth of artificial intelligence, businesses will have to find ways to leverage high-performance computing now for enterprise operations to deliver on big demands.
According to a November 2021 Statista report, digital transformation spending in the U.S. is expected to reach $1.8 trillion in 2022 and $2.8 trillion by 2025. This dramatically underscores why digital transformation has become a top priority for organizations.
Possible Coolant Shortage to Effect Semiconductor Industry
In early March, the Belgian Council of State (the equivalent to the U.S. Supreme Court) ordered the shutdown of a 3M plant that produces coolant essential to semiconductor manufacturing, according to published reports. Meanwhile, several European countries are pushing for tighter regulations on polyfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS chemicals.
The 3M plant was responsible for about 80% of specialized coolants (3M Fluorinert and 3M Novec) used by semiconductor manufacturers worldwide, according to supply chain analyst Resilinc. The byproduct of these coolants, according to Resilinc, are PFAS, also known as “forever chemicals” because of how long they can persist in water and soil.
Liquid Cooling Benefits in ESG & Data Center Operations
Business leaders and Board of Directors are feeling the pressure to improve their impact on the world. That’s not just profits, but the measurable effect from an Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) standpoint.
These new ESG goals are directly impacting the decision-making process of leading technology companies, cloud service providers (CSP), and the data center industry as it is faced with calls for improved return on capital and reduced environmental impacts.
How In-Rack Manifolds Impact Your HPC System
Imagine traveling from San Francisco to Los Angeles on a one lane road rather than a highway designed to handle a typical city’s capacity. The time it would take to go from Point A to Point B dramatically increases, making the journey longer, decreasing your efficiency, and increases the strain on your vehicle.
As you consider an end-to-end liquid cooling solution to leverage high-performance computing, you need to take great care in selecting and designing the proper in-rack manifold. Why? It’s one of the most important pieces of technology in an end-to-end liquid cooling ecosystem.
Motivair Proud to Partner with HPE & ORNL on Frontier System
Congratulations to the HPE and ORNL teams on successfully launching Frontier – the world’s fastest and most efficient supercomputer. Here at Motivair, we could not be prouder and more honored to play the small and yet vital role of cooling what many would consider the most advanced piece of technology ever developed.
