Supermicro Liquid-Cooled AI SuperClusters Will Power Large-Scale AI Data Center in Japan 

SAN JOSE, Calif. and TAIPEI, Taiwan, June 3, 2024 -- Supermicro, Inc. has announced a collaboration with Datasection, Foxconn, KDDI, and Sharp to create a large scale Asia AI data center. Supermicro, working with system integrator Datasection, will develop Total IT Rack-scale liquid-cooled solutions leveraging advanced NVIDIA GPUs for a new data center. In addition, there are plans for Supermicro to construct a liquid-cooled system with piping, water towers, and monitoring equipment.

From left to right in the first row are Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro; Robert Wu, President and CEO of SHARP; Makoto Takahashi, Chairman of KDDI; and Norihiko Ishihara, Chairman of Datasection.

Built on the former Sharp Sakai plant, the new facility will support advanced systems optimized for the NVIDIA AI Enterprise platform and deliver powerful performance for leading-edge LLM, ML, and generative AI applications.

"Supermicro is excited to collaborate with these leading companies on such an exciting project," said Charles Liang, president and CEO of Supermicro. "Our new industry-leading Direct Liquid Cooling (DLC) solutions are exactly the best for hyper-dense AI rack deployments that can lower energy costs and have a smaller environmental impact. The new AI data center and the companies involved are a great example of the industry's commitment to green computing and the global expansion of AI."
