At the 2022 Inspur Partner Forum (IPF22), Inspur, a worldwide IT infrastructure solutions supplier, and JD Cloud, a digital and intelligent solutions provider, announced the debut of the liquid-cooled rack server ORS3000S. This server uses cold-plate liquid cooling to cut data center power usage by 45 percent. This would make it a green option with a low TCO.
The ORS3000S liquid-cooled server uses cold-plate liquid cooling technology to increase heat dissipation efficiency “by 40 percent.” It uses a centralized power supply with N+N redundancy that can fulfill the demands of full rack power supply and can operate at maximum efficiency owing to power balance optimization during operation. When compared to a distributed power supply, this would lead to a 10 percent boost in total efficiency according to Inspur.
Faster shipping and deployment are possible thanks to factory pre-installation and efficient operations and maintenance (O&M). The ORS3000S liquid-cooled server has been widely installed in JD Cloud data centers, providing JD with processing capacity during major shopping events. It would boost performance “by 34 to 56 percent” while lowering power use effectiveness (PUE), carbon emissions, and energy use.
JD Cloud is JD.com’s integrated cloud service provider and full-service cloud computing platform. Public cloud, private cloud, hybrid cloud, and dedicated cloud are all covered by JD Cloud. It offers a wide range of cloud computing services, including infrastructure development, strategic consultancy, and the construction and maintenance of business platforms.
Manufacturing Capacity of 100,000 Servers
Inspur has been a forerunner in the field of direct and indirect cooling. The vendor aims at improving the overall energy efficiency of the cooling system by 30 to 50 percent using novel heat conduction technologies such as phase-change temperature uniformity, micro-channel cooling, and immersion cooling. This is accomplished by advancements in cooling throughout the server architecture, such as micro/nano-cavity, phase-change, and consistent temperature design for high-power components like the CPU and GPU. When compared to standard air-cooling solutions, this would enhance heat dissipation performance by 150 percent, so the company says.
Inspur has constructed one of the world’s largest liquid-cooled data center manufacturing facilities, with an annual manufacturing capacity of 100,000 servers, thanks to its experience in the industrial use of liquid cooling. This comprises a full-chain liquid-cooling smart manufacturing solution for mass manufacture of cold-plate liquid-cooled rack servers, which involves R&D, testing, and delivery. As a result, data centers would have a Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) of less than 1.1, while the full delivery process should take 5 to 7 days.
Cold-plate, heat-pipe, and immersion liquid-cooled products from Inspur have been widely used. Inspur also provides comprehensive liquid-cooled data center systems, comprising main and secondary liquid cooling circulation, as well as the coolant distribution unit (CDU). This all-in-one system would allow for full-path liquid cooling circulation in data centers, with an overall PUE of less than 1.1.
Inspur owns more than 100 key patents in the liquid cooling industry and has helped to develop technical standards and test criteria for cold-plate and immersion liquid-cooled data center systems. The firm is devoted to leading the rapid growth of the liquid cooling industry and the wide-scale deployment of breakthrough liquid cooling technologies, and it plans to do so in the future.
