Schematic showing the innovative water-cooling system of Aquasar. The first-of-a-kind supercomputer with direct energy reuse build by IBM and ETH Zurich
Prof. Ralph Eichler, President, ETH Zurich and Dr. John Kelly, Senior Vice President IBM Research, unveil for the first time, Aquasar, a first-of-a-kind, warm-water cooled supercomputer
IBM has delivered a first-of-a-kind water-cooled supercomputer to the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich. The innovative Aquasar system consumes up to 40 percent less energy than a comparable air-cooled machine

The supercomputer consists of special water-cooled IBM BladeCenter Servers, which were designed and manufactured by IBM scientists in Zurich and BÃ¶blingen, Germany
IBM has announced that its first-of-a-kind hot water-cooled supercomputer has been installed at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH Zurich). Named the Aquasar, the system not only consumes up to 40 per cent less energy than an air-cooled machine but the direct utilization of waste heat in the building's heating system translates to an 85 per cent cut in carbon dioxide emissions.
