Round two: Asetek receives follow-on order from Penguin Computing

27 Jun 2017

Asetek recently announced that Penguin Computing, a longstanding OEM partner, placed an order with the company valued at USD $40,000.

Asetek, a global provider of liquid cooling solutions for data centers, servers and PCs, was founded in 2000. The company is headquartered in Denmark and has operations in California, Texas, China and Taiwan.

Penguin Computing is headquartered in Fremont, California, and is a private supplier and developer of open, Linux-based high-performance computing and enterprise data center solutions.

Asetek signed a global purchasing agreement with Penguin Computing in 2015.

This initial order was for 140 loops to be used with Asetek's RackCDU Direct-to-Chip (D2C) liquid cooling solution.

Penguin Computing will deploy Asetek’s Direct-to-Chip (D2C) liquid data center cooling technology to cool NVIDIA's P100 GPU accelerators.

However, Asetek has now announced that Penguin computing has placed a second order for an undisclosed HPC (High Performance Computing) installation.

"This repeat order reflects our strong partnership with Penguin Computing. It is also another confirmation of the increasing need for liquid cooling in high density HPC clusters," comments André Sloth Eriksen, CEO and founder of Asetek.

On Friday 23 June, Asetek and Penguin Computing announced the agreement for Asetek to provide liquid cooling for NVIDIA's P100 GPU accelerators, a part of Penguin's Tundra ES (Extreme Scale) platform.

The follow-on order is for Asetek's RackCDU Direct-to-Chip (D2C) liquid cooling solution and includes additional loops to cool NVIDIA's P100 GPU accelerators.

The order has a value of USD $140,000 and delivery is expected to be completed in Q3 2017.
