Integrated rack with liquid-cooled chassis

Iceotope’s chassis-level liquid cooling technologies integrated with Schneider Electric’s NetShelter liquid-cooled enclosure system, will help enterprises overcome all the emerging challenges at the Edge.  

Integrated, supported and warrantied by Avnet, this solution is designed for simple deployment into data centres and edge computing environments. It offers greater efficiency, lower operating costs, higher levels of security, increased reliability and near silent operation, despite the high-power density of the GPUs being cooled. The sealed chassis makes it impervious to dust, heat and humidity, allowing it to be deployed in the harshest of environments.  

The dielectric liquid not only cools and protects all the components, it fundamentally enhances the product lifespan. Industry standard form factors allow maintenance to be carried out on site with familiar ease and no mess. By removing the need for fans or moving parts, service intervals are greatly increased allowing low and no touch compute at the Edge.

Liquid-cooled server 

This rack-mount, high-powered 3U GPU server is cooled via chassis-based, immersive liquid cooling. The system is configured with: (2) Cascade Lake 8276 Xeon processors 28 cores each; 128GB 2933 ECC RDIMM and (6) V100 Nvidia Tesla GPU’s. Iceotope’s innovative chassis-based immersive cooling allows for near silent operation with over 95% of the heat being removed via fluid. By eliminating the IT fans, server power consumption is reduced by up to 10%, providing immediate energy savings. Server maintenance is easily performed by features that include blind-mate dripless connectors in the rear and quick release latches for the chassis lid. The dielectric fluid sealed within the server chassis is touch safe, non-toxic, non-flammable, non-ozone depleting and has a lifespan of at least 20 years. Quick connect couplings are provided on the front of the server to allow for easy extraction of the dielectric fluid if needed for significant server upgrades or maintenance.

Netshelter liquid-cooled enclosure system

  • 48U, 600mm wide x 1250mm deep 
  • 21” Mounting rails 
  • 24U option available 

Based on the world’s most versatile rack, the Schneider Electric NetShelter liquid-cooled enclosure is built for chassis-based, immersive liquid-cooled servers. A fluid manifold comes installed at the rear of the rack for connection to a heat rejection system (not included). 48U-spaces provide the height necessary to scale the solution up to 14 x 3U GPU servers, in addition to accommodating the Lenovo network top-of-rack switch and Netbotz 250 Rack Monitor appliance. 

These NetShelter Liquid-cooled racks are designed to address the challenge of rising chip densities and applications ranging from artificial intelligence to high performance computing. With a strong focus on cooling, power distribution, cable management and environmental monitoring, the NetShelter Liquid-cooled enclosure provides a reliable rack-mounting environment for power-dense mission-critical equipment.

Schneider Electric Netbotz rack monitor 250 

The NetBotz Rack Monitor 250 provides cost-effective and flexible environmental monitoring. Accessible through a browser, the NetBotz offers temperature and humidity (sensors included) monitoring to prevent equipment failure due to environmental extremes. A 4.5m NetBotz Spot Fluid Sensor is also included to monitor for leak detection in the heat rejection circuit.

Lenovo ThinkSystem NE1032 Rackswitch 

The Lenovo ThinkSystem NE1032 RackSwitch is a 1U rack-mount, 10 Gb Ethernet switch that delivers lossless, low-latency performance with feature-rich design that supports virtualization, Converged Enhanced Ethernet (CEE), high availability, and enterprise class Layer 2 and Layer 3 functionality. The switch delivers line-rate, high-bandwidth switching, filtering, and traffic queuing without delaying data.

Netshelter metered rack PDUS

  • 208V, 230V, 400/415V options 
  • 0U/1U/2U mount options 

Metered rack Power Distribution Units (PDUs) provide real-time remote monitoring of connected loads. User-defined alarms warn of potential circuit overloads before critical IT failures occur.
