Following a successful installation, D&K begins manufacturing and shipping the units in quantity
SAN DIEGO—D&K Engineering recently partnered with Chilldyne to design, build, and commercialize Chilldyne’s Cool-Flo® liquid cooling system, a $1.25 million direct-to-chip liquid cooling system for high efficiency data centers. Now that Chilldyne has successfully installed the system in a South Korean national lab, D&K facility.
Chilldyne’s technologies were designed specifically to eliminate the risks associated with liquid cooling while keeping deployment costs low and reducing data center operating costs. D&K designed the Chilldyne Cool-Flo® system in partnership with Chilldyne engineers.
“We are pleased that our patented liquid cooling system was included in this $1.25 million customer installation,” said Chilldyne’s Engineering has reported that it will begin building and shipping Cool-Flo systems in quantity at its ISO-certified President and CEO Robert Spears in a press release. “This is the second large-scale order we have sold to our Korean reseller partner, Mirhenge, following a similar system installed in 2015.”
The Chilldyne Cool-Flo system provides water under negative pressure to cool 660kW of power. Each server blade is equipped with a Radeon R9 Fury X GPU card, injection molded GPU manifolds, and custom Chilldyne cold plates with internal turbulators. The Cool-Flo system uses six Cooling Distribution Units (CDUs) in a 4+2 redundant back-up configuration to deliver water to the 25 racks and 300 Cirrascale servers.
“The Chilldyne partnership is a perfect example of D&K Engineering’s flexible model of engagement allowing a seamless transition from Chilldyne’s design team to D&K’s manufacturing to successfully build Cool-Flo systems,” said Scott Dennis, CEO of D&K Engineering.
