STULZ USA forms strategic partnership with CoolIT Systems
STULZ, through its U.S. entity STULZ Air Technology Systems Inc. (STULZ USA), has engaged in a strategic investment and commercial partnership with CoolIT Systems Inc. Company officials said the commercial partnership will enable the two companies to cooperate closely in delivering unique Chip-to-Atmosphere solutions across the globe. Both parties remain independently owned and operated.
“STULZ has identified Chip-to-Atmosphere cooling solutions as a growing market segment for data center environments,” said Joerg Desler, president of STULZ USA. “This alliance with CoolIT allows us to offer customers more complete solutions that involve capturing the heat at source inside the servers and moving it out to the atmosphere with STULZ technology.”
CoolIT’s DCLC technology uses the thermal conductivity of liquid to provide concentrated cooling to the hottest components inside a server, enabling very high density configurations. CoolIT says its centralized pumping liquid cooling solutions can be tailored to any server layout and have already been adopted by many server manufacturers as a reliable technology that is covered under standard warranties.
“Partnering with such an influential solution provider as STULZ provides a tremendous worldwide capacity to our company,” said Geoff Lyon, CEO and CTO at CoolIT Systems. “This strategic relationship increases our ability to better serve the data center industry with forward thinking designs, solutions, and services.”
“CoolIT Systems is attractive to the global STULZ Group because they align well with STULZ’ history of bringing innovation and highly efficient technology to the data center market,” said STULZ USA Vice President Brian Hatmaker. “We see a growing need in the market for more flexible solutions to support high performance and high density compute applications. Chip-to-Atmosphere solutions will generate immediate CAPEX and OPEX savings with minimal footprint requirements.”
