Iceotope Technologies has sealed an OEM agreement with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) to offer its liquid-cooled chassis with HPE ProLiant servers in the Ku:l Extreme Data Centre solution.

The combined solution runs in enterprise data centres as well as at the extreme edge to enable reliable performance and efficiency while ensuring a high level of protection required for harsh edge environments.

Iceotope Technologies CEO David Craig said: “IT and data centre managers are being tasked to meet targets for sustainability whilst data gravity creates more complexity as it draws more and more processing and analytics power to the edge.

“This OEM agreement provides access to the most efficient and effective solution for maintaining servers in an optimum environment.”

Phil Cutrone, vice president and general manager of service providers, OEM and major accounts at HPE, said: “There is a greater need for zero-touch edge computing capabilities to ensure reliability at remote locations when in-person monitoring and maintenance is not always feasible.

“Our latest collaboration with Iceotope Technologies addresses these requirements by integrating Iceotope’s Ku:l Extreme chassis with high-performing HPE ProLiant servers that feature HPE Integrated Lights Out (iLo) for out-of-band communications management.”
