Data Center Sustainability – Cooling Solutions

A comprehensive liquid cooling solution

This server is a purpose-built for intensive workloads for HPC data centers, with optimized space design to fit direct-to-chip and immersive cooling solutions, delivering lower PUE and Operating Expenditures to balance power consumption and green energy awareness. By working with our partners, we’re able to deliver a total solution — from servers to liquid-cooling modules, and even data-center floor plans and suggested infrastructure.

Direct-to-chip cooling solution

ASUS direct-to-chip cooling is a quick, simple option that’s based on existing infrastructure. D2C can be deployed quickly, and lower PUE (power-usage effectiveness). ASUS servers can support manifolds and cool plates to enable diverse cooling solutions. Moreover, ASUS servers can support a rear-door heat exchanger that complies with standard rack-server designs, so there’s no need to replace all racks — just the rear door. This lowers the total cost of ownership, and increases data-center utilization ratio.

Immersive cooling solution

ASUS Immersion cooling is another highly-effective solution from ASUS. This technique offers more advantages on PUE and encompasses higher-density servers. However, it also demands more space, and may require retooling of the data-center infrastructure. But immersion cooling can control temperatures more rapidly, efficiently and cost-effectively than traditional methods. For users of supercomputers in particular, immersion cooling is the preferred option.

CPU-balanced Architecture

The new AMD EPYC 9004 processors excel at providing full features and functionality for both dual-socket and single-socket platforms, but our new servers ASUS is introducing an CPU-balanced architecture to enable secure and optimal CPU-performance efficiency.

This architecture extends the full bandwidth to either dual- or single-CPU configurations, enabling more computing capability and much-improved overall power efficiency for compute-intensive workloads. This architecture allows customers to take full advantage of bandwidth capabilities of the dual-CPU architecture with a single CPU, while offering the flexibility to upgrade later with the addition of a second CPU.

* Features, specification and design vary by models and configuration.

World Records Leadership

ASUS holds the most amount of records in dual-socket (2P) and single-socket (1P) on SPEC CPU 2017 benchmark and dominate the computing performance. These top performance results provide a useful insight into compute-intensive workloads on different computer systems, enabling our customers to reduce complexity, tackle challenging workloads and accelerate system validations.

ASUS servers feature Performance Boost technology to achieve the best server performance and agility by tuning servers to match the requirements of workloads, letting you gain greater control of your server environment. This technology improves workload throughput by maximizing processor frequency and boost power, ideal for timesensitive applications such as financial services or data center operations.
