Vicor to participate in leading data centre conference

Vicor Corporation, a manufacturer of modular power components, has announced its participation at the Open Data Center Committee (ODCC) Summit, to be held in Beijing from 16–17 October.

The ODCC is a non-profit consortium formed by China’s leading technology providers (Baidu, Alibaba, Tencent) and their telecom giants (China Telecom, China Mobile, China Unicom), and backed by Chinese government agencies. The mission of ODCC is to create an open data centre platform in China, promote the development and infrastructure standardisation of internet industry and accelerate the process of internet industrialisation.

Vicor Vice President Robert Gendron (pictured) will be providing a keynote presentation at the ODCC Summit, on the topic of ‘Progression & Evolution of Power Technology within Cloud Data Centers’. He will outline how, with the advent of artificial intelligence (AI) present within the cloud, AI processors are now taking power demands to even higher levels. The ability to power AI processors, and not limit their full potential, creates new requirements not only on the processor VR but on the data centre’s power infrastructure and server rack.

Vicor will also have a booth at the show demonstrating its new modular power solutions for 48 V rack power distribution architectures and advanced AI (artificial intelligence) processors. On display at Booth #T07 will be the company’s three-phase to 48 V and 48 V direct-to-load AI power solutions, as well as advanced cooling technologies such as liquid cooling and immersion cooling.
