Rittal, a leading global system provider of IT infrastructure as well as industrial solutions and ZutaCore, a waterless, two-phase, liquid cooling company, have announced a strategic partnership.
Together they offer highly efficient data centre cooling solutions and will enable customers to cool processors up to and above 900W. Now data centre owners and operators can harness computer power at significantly higher densities from the CPU level through to server, rack and data centre levels.
The global data centre liquid cooling market is expected to grow from USD 1.2 billion in 2019 to USD 3.2 billion by 2024, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of near 25 percent during the forecast period (MarketsandMarkets). With the growth of applications, such as Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, data centre decision makers need a cooling platform that will meet and surpass the challenges of high-powered processors.
“Data centre owners are very interested in liquid cooling solutions as a way to manage new high-performance workloads that are disruptive to the rest of the data centre environment. However, many are hesitant to introduce new technologies into their environments – especially those that introduce liquids adjacent to their mission-critical electronics. The partnership between long-time and trusted data centre provider Rittal and ZutaCore will alleviate hesitations to adoption and open up opportunities for much greater efficiencies in data centre cooling,” says Jennifer Cooke, Research Director for IDC’s Cloud to Edge Data centre Trends and Strategies team at IDC.
“ZutaCore is a dynamic partner with a depth of expertise in liquid cooling technology. Combining this pioneering two-phase cooling technology with our scalable IT racks and cooling systems will create a data centre revolution at a global scale,” states Dr Thomas Steffen, Managing Director Research & Development, Rittal.
As a leading global system provider, Rittal is prepared to accommodate the most diverse requirements across industries and has established itself as a major player in data centre cooling. Incorporating ZutaCore’s solution into its platform recognises the complementary LCP technologies. Together they can alleviate cooling boundaries from hot spots to the Edge, consistently, in any climate. The unique benefits of waterless liquid cooling are critical to achieving unparalleled heat dissipation while mitigating the risk of IT failure.
“This marks a major milestone for ZutaCore as we partner with a global leader in end-to-end solutions for innovative IT environments – from edge to hyperscale computing,” says Erez Freibach, co-founder & CEO at ZutaCore. “This partnership will bring tremendous value to data centres globally as customers can now rely on trusted integrated solutions from Rittal embedding advanced, waterless liquid cooling from ZutaCore to densify data centres, decrease complexity, and lower costs. By partnering with Rittal, we are ready to change the dialog and get to the heart of the growing demand to provide effective cooling solutions from the rack to complete data centres worldwide.”Click below to share this article
