Sandia’s Liquid Cooled Data Center Boosts Efficiency and Resiliency

When Sandia installed the 650-kW Attaway supercomputer at their Albuquerque HPC data center in 2019, they sought innovative cooling concepts that would reduce the massive computer system’s significant energy use. Technology partner Chilldyne offered a unique solution: a liquid system that operates under vacuum pressure for resilient, energy-efficient data center cooling.

The Chilldyne cooling system was built with redundancy/resilience in mind: If one element were to fail, others would continue keeping the system cool and the equipment safe.
