News: Iceotope launch another cool product


Iceotope, the hi-tech firm based on the Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP) in Rotherham, has launched a new product to take its revolutionary cooling system out of the data centre.

Working with the University of Leeds, the enterprise is developing a new system that reduces the power consumed in data centres by using liquid rather than air to provide cooling, eliminating the need for power-hungry fans. The company successfully completed a round of fundraising for $10m in 2014 to help further commercialise its innovative cooling solutions.

Iceotope's patented approach sees components encapsulated in 3M Novec, an inert and environmentally sound coolant. From its base in the AMP Technology Centre, the company has now launched a silent, liquid cooled GPU compatible server blade to accommodate high-performance computing components such as graphics cards and media accelerators.


A GPU, or graphics processing unit, is often found in high end PCs and used primarily for the smooth decoding and rendering of 3D animations and video. Iceotope believes its new GPU server will allow users to add greater flexibility and scalability to high-performance computing operations, while realising the significant energy and space savings made possible through liquid cooling technology.

With heat generating IT components housed in a sealed blade and immersed in a safe, non-flammable coolant, Iceotope's GPU server is contained within a resilient cabinet occupying less than one square metre of floor space and operates in virtual silence. It can be deployed alongside the teams that use it in almost any space, including office, laboratories, factories and logistics areas.

Peter Hopton, founder and technology director at Iceotope,said: "This is a great milestone for Iceotope and a big step forward for more sustainable high-performance computing. HPC users no longer need to choose between accelerated performance and improved data centre efficiency, now they can achieve both.

"By incorporating GPU computing within our unique liquid cooled blade design we've added greater expandability and flexibility to our product range and made it possible for users to achieve faster results and undertake more complex analysis at the same time as making significant savings on the amount of floor space and energy used for IT."
