Projected trends in component power and density are beginning to push the limits of traditional air cooling. Closed-loop liquid cooling with effective liquid-to-air heat exchange (in short, air-assisted liquid cooling) is a potential approach to extending cooling capability of existing air-cooled facilities. Different rack-level approaches to air-assisted liquid cooling (AALC) will be previewed. The optimized and standardized RPU (reservoir and pumping unit; imagine a CDU without it’s plate heat exchanger) will form the core of any AALC solution and specific focus is placed on defining this component – form-factor, interfaces, features, etc. Short-term goals for this area involve initializing an OCP group to drive specification for and standardization of the RPU.
