High Performance Computing (HPC) is rapidly accelerating - driven by the adoption and growth of AI, Machine Learning, IoT and 5G technologies - and is solving many enterprise business challenges. For data center operators, if not now, this will soon create the necessity for high density cabinets and data centers. High density compute/networking/storage solutions are requiring new data center designs and infrastructure changes to cool these critical systems. This panel, with well-known industry experts from NVIDIA, Cyxtera, University of Texas Arlington and Vertiv, will discuss drivers, challenges, lessons learned and solutions to enable legacy data centers, edge sites and greenfield builds to successfully manage the transition to high density air and liquid cooling solutions. Questions answered will include: • Why is liquid cooling inevitable? What's driving the need? • What is the TCO and sustainability comparison of liquid vs. air? • At what rack density is it a good idea to consider liquid cooling? • What are the engineering challenges for retrofit of air-cooled to liquid cooled? How do you prepare and transition? • What are the pain points of implementation? • What components can I monitor for failure and leaks? What are the components (if any) that are more likely to fail? • What kind of PM's and ongoing maintenance do liquid cooled racks require? • Is there an economical way to install in a small edge room or rooms that are not data center grade like a small server room in a company office?


*High Performance Compute is the answer to adopting data intensive technologies, Artificial Intelligence capabilities, robust IoT and automation, but it is not without Infrastructure challenges.
*Industry experts are designing and implementing cooling technologies that will support the availability of HPC across many verticals, while addressing bottom line goals.
*This session is designed to enable you to understand the Infrastructure requirements, best practices and leverage these new technologies.
