Increase Densities Ten-Fold while Reducing Cooling Costs by 90%

White Paper:  High Performance Compute Center

Four Years With OptiCool

MITRE was the first company in New England and one of the first enterprises in the U.S. to implement an innovative refrigerant-based cooling solution to support its computing facility in Bedford, Massachusetts. After four years, MITRE’s HighPerformance Compute Center is a dramatic example of how progressive thinking and solid system analysis can deliver effective solutions to a complex problem.

MITRE has achieved a more than a ten-fold increase in power and cooling density, and at the same time has reduced internal data center cooling costs by 90%, and overall cooling costs by 20%.
