FIBERSTAMP Shows Support to the Liquid Cooling Data Center Reconstruction of a Top US HFT Company
Fremont, CA: Many businesses rely on data centers to run critical applications, store critical data, and provide critical user services. However, data center infrastructure is constantly changing. New technologies are constantly reshaping the data center and its role in the enterprise.
With its liquid cooling immersible optical transceivers currently in joint testing, FIBERSTAMP supports a top US High-Frequency Trading (HFT) company's liquid cooling data center reconstruction plan.
The client, a top US HFT company with top-ranking sophisticated computing environments for R&D, intends to convert its data centers to liquid cooling type to maintain the irreconcilable conflict of ultrahigh computational capacity demands and limited space and power supply. Because of the unique characteristics of the HFT industry and service, data centers are under increasing computing power pressure, which inevitably results in ultrahigh density racks being deployed next to stock exchanges.
Similarly, liquid cooling technology becomes the answer to a common question that the entire industry is grappling with: how to fit infinitely expanding computing capacities into finite space with a limited power supply. With the liquid cooling reconstruction, a large amount of space previously occupied by air conditioners and fans can be freed up to support more racks, and rack density limits are also broken.
However, popularising liquid cooling is a difficult task. The lack of validated optical interconnection hardware is preventing its applications from expanding further. As a long-term partner of the HFT giant, FIBERSTAMP announced its new results: 25G immersible optical transceivers that have been tested and deployed in data centers and 5G DU applications. At the moment, the procured samples have been received by the user and are being tested in real-world environments to ensure long-term reliability.
The first batch of 10/25/50/100G immersible transceivers and the common liquid cooling technology applicable for optical transceivers are significant fruits of FIBERSTAMP in 2021, which are further boosting the widespread applications of liquid cooling technology in data center, server, HFT, and 5G networks. The first-generation immersible transceivers have superior leakproofness, support direct submersion cooling, and can work while submerged in liquid depths greater than 1m. Simultaneously, through liquid pressurization testing, all materials used are long-term compatible with mainstream coolants and immersive working environments.
