The HPE Apollo 8000 Intelligent Cooling Distribution Unit (iCDU) Rack provides 320 kW of efficient and resilient cooling using the lower half of a standard rack footprint. The iCDU connects to a standard 2.5-inch facility water pipe and cools up to four HPE Apollo f8000 racks.
The iCDU serves as a heat exchanger between the primary facilities and the secondary IT cooling. It isolates the secondary IT cooling loop for consistent water quality, containment, pressure and flow. The secondary loop remains at sub-atmospheric temperatures and the water flowing from redundant iCDUs to HPE Apollo f8000 racks is pumped under vacuum keeping water in place, for operational resiliency and serviceability.
Smart sensors automatically track thermal activity, dynamically adjusting system components to enhance system cooling for optimum efficiency.
The iCDU comes with a modular plumbing kit with quick disconnect 2.5 inch stainless connectors and flexible hoses for fast and easy deployment.
With industry leading performance density, the HPE Apollo f8000 Rack holds up to 144 HPE ProLiant Servers with plenty of CPU, accelerator, memory and networking options in a standard rack footprint.
The HPE Apollo f8000 Rack powers HPC workloads with 3-phase high voltage AC, single stage power rectification and high voltage DC distribution. Smart sensors automatically track and dynamically adjust system components for optimum efficiency.
Water coming into the rack is distributed through manifolds that split out to thermal bus bars for heat transfer from the dry disconnect server trays. Water going out of the rack features isolation valves and is aggregated for energy recycling.
HPE Apollo 8000 System Manager provides real time data from hundreds of smart sensors and environmental controls; server data available with HPE Integrated Lights-Out, HPE Advanced Power Management; system monitoring, management and optimization.
Fuel ground breaking research in science and engineering with leading edge technology, while going greener than ever before. The HPE ProLiant XL750f Gen9 Server supports NVIDIA® Tesla® K40 XL GPUs. Applications that benefit from GPUs include seismic processing, biochemistry simulations, weather and climate modeling, image, video and signal processing, computational finance, computational physics, CAE, CFD, and data analytics.
The HPE Apollo 8000 System reaches new heights of performance density, with 4x the teraflops per square foot and up to 40% more FLOPs per watt than comparable air cooled servers.1 At the same time, the HPE Apollo 8000 System helps reduce your carbon footprint, saving up to 3,800 tons of CO2 per year.2 That’s about the same amount of CO2 produced per year by 790 cars!
