Within GSI/FAIR's own high-performance computing center "Green IT Cube", the "Digital Open Lab" provides the environment for developing, testing and upscaling energy-efficient high-performance computing to the scale of industrial demonstrators.
In this Real Lab / Innovation & Test Data Center computing and storage systems can be optimally tuned to an efficient cooling system with the respective application-specific requirements for performance capabilities, temporal load distributions and the like, and in different operating modes and system configurations.
The Green IT Cube is particularly sustainable thanks to its special cooling system. The water cooling system used here in the rear doors of the server cabinets is highly efficient and requires less than seven percent of the electrical power of the IT equipment. The energy required for cooling is reduced to one tenth compared to conventional supercomputers. This reduces operating costs and at the same time contributes to environmental protection.
