  • Publication number: 20230015461
    Abstract: Self-contained server assemblies for housing servers or server blades and associated computing facilities are disclosed herein. In one embodiment, a server assembly includes an enclosure having an interior space housing a server blade, a dielectric coolant submerging heat producing components of the server blade, and a condenser assembly having a condenser coil in fluid communication with a vapor gap in the interior space. The condenser coil is configured to receive a coolant that removes heat from a vapor of the dielectric coolant in the vapor gap, thereby condensing the vapor into a liquid form to be returned to the server blade.

    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to systems, methods, and computer readable media for optimizing resource allocation on a computing zone based on bursting data and in accordance with an allocation policy. For example, systems disclosed herein may implement a lifetime-aware allocation of computing resources to facilitate computational bursting on respective server nodes to prioritize different aspects of performance on the server nodes of a cloud computing system. The systems described herein provide a number of benefits, including, by way of example, facilitating an allocation policy that enables more densely packing virtual machines on respective server nodes, boosting individual virtual machine performance, and reducing a buffer of empty nodes that need to be maintained on one or more node clusters. This may include more densely packing virtual machines on respective server nodes.

  • Publication number: 20220264761
    Abstract: The discussion relates to cooling computing devices and specifically to managing two-phase cooling. One example can include a two-phase liquid immersion tank containing heat generating components and a liquid phase of a coolant having a boiling point within an operating temperature range of the heat generating components. The example can also include a stratification chamber fluidly coupled to the liquid immersion tank and configured to at least partially separate a gas phase of the coolant from other gases. The example can further include a condenser chamber fluidly coupled to the stratification chamber and configured to receive the gas phase of the coolant and cause the gas phase of the coolant to phase change back into the liquid phase of the coolant.

  • Publication number: 20210216117
    Abstract: A computing system includes a housing, processing circuitry, one or more additional components, and a cryogen evaporator plate. The housing includes a cryogen input port, a cryogen output port, and an interior chamber. The processing circuitry and the one or more additional components are in the interior chamber of the housing. The cryogen evaporator plate is thermally coupled to the processing circuitry and configured to receive a cryogen via the cryogen input port, cool the processing circuitry using the cryogen such that the cryogen is evaporated during the cooling of the processing circuitry to provide evaporated cryogen, and provide the evaporated cryogen into the interior chamber of the housing such that the evaporated cryogen is distributed over the one or more additional components to cool the one or more additional components.

  • Patent number: 11051426
    Abstract: Immersion cooling enclosures with insulating liners and associated computing facilities are disclosed herein. In one embodiment, an immersion cooling enclosure includes a well formed in a substrate material, a lid in contact with and fastened to the well to enclose an internal space configured to contain a dielectric coolant submerging one or more computing devices in the internal space, and an insulating liner on the internal surfaces of the well. The insulating liner has a first side in contact with the dielectric coolant and a second side in contact with the substrate material of the well. The insulating liner is non-permeable to the dielectric coolant, thereby preventing the dielectric coolant from passing through the insulating liner to the substrate material.

  • Patent number: 10921300
    Abstract: Air quality inside a computing device is monitored utilizing an air quality monitor that can be sized to simulate a server computing device and can have multiple sensing equipment mounted inside, including equipment to detect corrosive aspects in the air and condensation sensing equipment to detect instances in which condensation can form on computing device hardware. Corrosion sensing can include metallic members that can be electrically coupled to voltage that can induce a current within the metallic members, thereby more accurately simulating the corrosion of operating PCBs. Condensation sensing can include condensation hosting members that can have a thermal mass that is approximately equal to the thermal mass of PCBs and can include heating elements by which the condensation hosting members can more accurately simulate the thermal effects and aspects of operating PCBs, and also moisture detectors, including electrical and optical moisture detectors. Additionally, an off-gassing chamber can be included.

  • Patent number: 10750637
    Abstract: A removable immersion cooling infrastructure module can have a form factor equivalent to that of one or more of the computing devices being cooled by immersion cooling, thereby enabling the immersion cooling infrastructure module to be installed and removed in the same simplified and efficient manner. Moreover, the quantity of immersion cooling infrastructure modules can be varied depending on need, since the immersion cooling infrastructure modules and computing devices can be interchangeable within the openings designed to house the computing devices. An immersion cooling infrastructure module can comprise a filter, a pump that can circulate the immersion cooling liquid through the filter, a power supply and a controller, with the module receiving power, and, optionally, communications and other like connectivity, from the same source as the computing devices.

  • Patent number: 10667435
    Abstract: A rack acclimating device can accelerate the acclimation of an already assembled rack of computing equipment to an environment. A rack acclimating device can comprise one or more heating elements and an air moving device that can be oriented to move air across the heating elements and then through the rack of computing equipment. Additionally, the rack acclimating device can comprise a controller or other like computing device that can receive environmental sensor data and, based upon the received environmental sensor data, can control the heating elements and air moving device. Environmental sensor data can be received from environmental sensors, such as temperature and/or humidity sensors, which can be positioned to sense various environmental aspects. A rack acclimating device can also comprise a hood or other like structure to confine and direct the heated air from the heating elements and/or air moving device to the computer equipment rack.
