Dielectric Supercooled Supercomputers at 50 Petaflops and Soon 250 Petaflops

• Next Big Future

DownUnder GeoSolutions (DUG) has four data centres have been recently upgraded and DUG's global compute power now exceeds 50 PF (single-precision petaflops).

Petaflop supercomputers generate a lot of heat and need efficient cooling technology. Installations such as these are traditionally air-cooled, which is inefficient, expensive, and environmentally unfriendly. DUG has developed (Patent Publication WA 2017/091862 A1) an advanced, flexible, and modular dielectric-fluid cooling solution which greatly reduces energy usage and costs and increases the life and efficiency of the hardware.
