Iceotope announces installation into Rolls Royce facility at University of Derby

 
 

Sheffield-based IT Company, Iceotope, has today announced the first installation of their liquid cooled computer system at the Rolls Royce facility inside the Institute of Innovation and Sustainable Engineering (IISE). Located at the University of Derby, the Iceotope system uses absolutely no airflow which operates silently and allows the system to be closer to the working environment.

The high performance machine will handle complex calculations on behalf of industrial partners to achieve cutting-edge solutions with a focus on innovation, research and development. High Performance Computing (HPC) is of considerable importance to the UK economy and facilitates some of the most pioneering R&D projects in academia and industry.

“We’re thrilled to be working with both Rolls Royce and the University of Derby” said David Craig, Chairman at Iceotope. “This installation has proven that our cooling technology can be deployed amongst the workforce with minimal disruption and maximum efficiency”.

Professor Richard Hall, Director of Research, Innovation and Impact at the IISE, said: “The Iceotope machine will be used to deliver a number of projects as part of joint activities between Rolls-Royce and the University. As the first machine commercially delivered by Iceotope, it will act as a very important object for research and we look forward to future collaborations.”
