Asetek Wins Frost & Sullivan Award for Their Revolutionary Data Center Cooling Solution

RackCDU is a Simple, Low-cost Solution for All Types of Data Centers

LONDON, Sept. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the data center cooling solutions market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Asetek® with the 2014 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for New Product Innovation Leadership. Asetek's RackCDU™ employs a warm water, server-level, direct-to-chip, liquid cooling system for servers. This ground-breaking solution reduces the energy required for the cooling of data center IT equipment by 60–80 percent and total data center energy consumption by 30 percent. In addition to the award, Frost & Sullivan has released their research report on Asetek's RackCDU.

Asetek has changed the perception of liquid cooling as being expensive and complex. Asetek's RackCDU is a simple, efficient and reliable cooling system for all types of data centers (large and small, supercomputing and enterprise). Asetek's understanding of how data centers operate in the real world has led to RackCDU being easy to install and use.

"We are honored to be recognized by a first tier analyst firm such as Frost & Sullivan. The award validates our ability to address the everyday needs of the data center industry and the cooling problems it faces," said André Sloth Eriksen, Founder and CEO of Asetek.

Asetek's strategy of leveraging an industry-standardized solution at a much lower cost and providing a compelling return-on-investment (ROI), is in stark contrast to previous liquid-cooling solutions' approach of only appealing to data centers that valued performance over cost savings. Asetek's payback period of less than 12 months has made it a popular choice in all types of data centers.

"Asetek's RackCDU can be installed in existing or new data centers with minimal impact on infrastructure or operations, and almost completely eliminate specialized training of data center staff," said Frost & Sullivan Senior Industry Analyst Gautham Gnanajothi. "This combination has resonated with end users, most of whom had not considered liquid-cooling until now."

According to Frost & Sullivan's report, the success of Asetek's products is primarily the result of its efforts to create awareness, demand and differentiation in previously non-existent markets.

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to a company that has developed an innovative element in a product by leveraging leading-edge technologies. The award recognizes the value added features/benefits of the product and the increased ROI it offers customers, which in turn increases customer adaption and overall market penetration potential.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.

Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable? Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations?

For example, using spot instances ...
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
