LRZ and IBM Announce First Commercial Hot Water-Cooled Supercomputer

The Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ), in collaboration with IBM, has announced the world's first commercially available hot water-cooled supercomputer - the SuperMUC.

Designed to help researchers and industrial institutions across Europe investigate and solve scientific challenges, the SuperMUC is a powerful, high-performance system built with IBM System x iDataPlex Direct Water Cooled dx360 M4 servers with more than 150,000 cores to provide a peak performance of up to three petaflops (the equivalent to the work of more than 110,000 PCs)

Also, a revolutionary new form of hot water-cooling technology invented by IBM allows the system to be built 10 times more compact and substantially improve its peak performance while consuming 40% less energy than a comparable air-cooled machine.
