In the second half of this year, Super Cloud, jointly with Intel and Smart Spectrum AI, released AI large model training and pushing all-in-one machine, based on Super Cloud R8868 G13 server. This "out-of-the-box" trainer is powered by Intel's 4th Generation Xeon Scalable Series processors, compatible with modules such as Intel ® Habana® Gaudi®2C, and features superior heterogeneous acceleration architecture. It can be used for large model experience evaluation, pre-research and demonstration of large model application scenarios, large model Prompt development, large model application development and large model teaching training, etc. It can easily solve technical problems such as customers without professional computer room, soft and hard separation, expansion difficulties, and long delivery cycle.
Today, intelligent computing is not only a test of data center performance, but also a test of green energy efficiency, which is also the product concept that Super Cloud has always adhered to. From initially providing liquid cooling services for supercomputers to liquid cooling technology now applied to AI products, Super Cloud hopes to solve the problems of high heat generation and unstable performance caused by rapid increase of TDP of chips through liquid cooling solutions, and reduce the overall energy consumption of data centers. Based on mature cold plate technology, Super Cloud has launched a series of products such as cold plate liquid cooling server, complete cabinet liquid cooling server and liquid cooling micro module. In terms of immersion liquid cooling, Chaoyun has established a joint laboratory for thermal control of electronic equipment jointly with Beijing University of Chemical Technology and Zhejiang Institute of Chemical Technology to develop new liquid cooling materials so as to realize localization substitution as soon as possible. In addition, Chaoyun also participated in the compilation and release of two standards: Technical Reference Architecture for Liquid-cooled High-performance Computers and Technical Requirements for Immersion Liquid Cooling Systems for High-performance Computers, which filled the gaps in the design, development and application of liquid cooling technology in the field of high-performance computers and provided important reference basis for cold plate and immersion liquid cooling architecture and technical design.
Supercloud liquid cooling products have also been verified in practice. In an energy cold plate liquid cooling room project, Chaoyun designed a liquid cooling system for both CPU and GPU. The system's one-to-nine liquid module is decoupled from the whole machine, so that DCU (PCIe card) can be maintained independently and operated conveniently. The liquid distribution module is an integrated design with a height of 1U. The liquid inlet and outlet are of "upper inlet and lower outlet" structure. The main liquid inlet is located in the middle, and 9 groups of branch ports are located at both ends. Among them, 8 groups are GPU liquid cooling liquid supply and 1 group is CPU liquid supply, realizing uniform flow distribution and balanced heat dissipation performance. The whole machine liquid cooling 3560W, of which, CPU 560W, GPU 350W. Cold plate overall use of metal cold plate + hose combination form, high reliability, flexible deployment, excellent performance has been affirmed by customers.
