Asetek announces data center partnership with NEC
NEC Corporation, through its subsidiary NEC Fielding, will deploy Asetek RackCDU Direct-to-Chip liquid cooling at a new HPC (High Performance Computing) installation in Japan.
Asetek has already begun to make shipments in support of this installation.
This follows the announcement of an undisclosed OEM partner on September 7th, 2017.
“Adding OEMs has been a key goal for our datacenter business and it is particularly satisfying to add another significant OEM to our portfolio of customers,” André Sloth Eriksen, Asetek CEO and founder said at the time.
