Unlike other servers that use costly and power-hungry air cooling, the LSS 200 is submerged in a dielectric liquid, Core Coolant, that has 1350 times greater heat removal capacity than air. This negates the need for expensive air conditioning and air moving equipment to keep the whole data centre at an optimum temperature. When compared to traditional data centres, LSS can reduce energy costs of cooling by 80% or more, resulting in an overall cost savings potential of 40% or more.
As a result of the improved temperature regulation, LSS 200 systems deliver server performance enhancements that fit perfectly in demanding, high speed and performance-critical environments such as high frequency trading (HFT). The system is extremely durable, with the highest levels of reliability and performance, creating an ideal solution for running all quantitative applications, such as pre-trade analytics and trading model creation.
Chad Attlesey, President, Chief Technology Officer, and Founder of Hardcore Computer commented, Regulating server temperatures has been an on-going challenge in data centres for many years, as it has a direct correlation with server power and performance. Traditional cooling solutions have proven very costly and their efficiency is limited, thus data centres are continually battling with escalating power consumption and associated costs. The total liquid submersion cooling technology in the LSS 200 is the most effective solution on the market.
Manoj Nayee, Managing Director, Boston Ltd. added, The LSS 200 is one of the most innovative data centre products available today and addresses the server performance demands of data centres especially financial institutions. As one of the leading financial hubs in the world, the UK market will benefit immensely from the introduction of the LSS 200.
Hardcores liquid submersion technology was recently evaluated by two major providers of technology to the financial services industry; Citihub and TIBCO. The independent test found that using a total liquid submersion-cooled Hardcore Computer system, in conjunction with TIBCO FTL, delivered a 34% improvement over previously published benchmarks for inter-process communications, with a latency of 237 nanoseconds at 4.2 million messages per second.
Donovan Ransome, head of e-trading and market data of Citihub said, This record once again demonstrates Citihub and Hardcores low latency engineering capability. We have been improving and tuning milliseconds and microseconds from electronic trading applications for over a decade by combining the knowledge and experience of our consultants and engineers with close industry relationships with key innovators such as SuperMicro, Intel, Hardcore Computer and TIBCO.
