Asetek, the world's leading supplier of computer liquid cooling solutions, announced today that its RackCDU technology won the "Future Thinking & Design Concepts" award at the 2013 DatacenterDynamics EMEA Awards. Held on December 12th at the Lancaster London Hotel in London, RackCDU was chosen from among four finalists in the Europe/Middle East/Africa region (EMEA).

The award was received by Ole Madsen, VP of Engineering at Asetek. Built up over the last six years, the annual DatacenterDynamics Awards have become the industry's most sought-after prize and are often referred to as the "Oscars" of the data center field.

"It is an honor to have our data center liquid cooling innovations recognized in this way," said André Sloth Eriksen, Founder and CEO of Asetek. "This award further validates our solutions' ability to address the growing problem of energy efficiency in the data center as made evident in our recent infographic."

RackCDU is Asetek's innovative hot water, direct-to-chip, data center liquid cooling technology, which removes heat from CPUs, GPUs, memory modules and other hot spots within the servers with an all-liquid path and rejects it into ambient outdoor air without chilling. This enables cooling savings in excess of 50%, density increases of 2.5x to 5x, and recovery of all the server energy removed by RackCDU for reuse in facility heating and cooling.

The DatacenterDynamics EMEA Awards recognise the outstanding talents and achievements of the data centre industry over the past 12 months. With 15 established award categories, the awards celebrate data centre projects of all sizes and are a highlight of the data centre industry calendar. The "Future Thinking & Design Concepts" award recognizes the kind of innovation and "out of the box" thinking that is shaping the next generation of cutting-edge data center solutions.
