IDCC 2023: New vision for the intelligent computing industry

  • The 18th China IDC Industry Annual Convention (IDCC2023) concluded successfully.
  • As the top event in the arithmetic industry, IDCC2023 released a number of research results, including a research report, two white papers, and two industry standards.

From December 12th to 14th, the Beijing National Convention Center buzzed with excitement as the “The 18th China IDC Industry Annual Convention (IDCC2023) ” concluded, hosted by the Data Center Committee of the China Communications Industry Association (CIDC). Nearly a thousand guests gathered on-site to explore the future trends in the computing power industry, while an online live stream attracted nearly 100,000 viewers. The IDCC 2023 not only unveiled multiple leading research outcomes but also outlined a clear blueprint for the industry’s development direction.

High-quality development White Paper of China’s computing power industry (2023)

Led by Jin Heping, the compiling unit representative, provided an in-depth interpretation of the “High-Quality Development White Paper of China’s Computing Power Industry (2023)”. The white paper delineates the entire landscape of the intelligent computing industry across six dimensions: safety and controllability, green low-carbon, interconnected collaboration, diverse ubiquity, integrated intelligence, and shared inclusiveness. High-quality development is not only a technical support for the digital economy but also a crucial indicator of the country’s economic level.

Technical guidelines for numerical simulation of thermal environment in data centers

For data centers, precise environmental support is crucial as servers generate significant heat during operation. Poor thermal conditions can lead to severe consequences such as overheating, lag, and hardware damage. This guideline employs numerical simulation technology to describe and regulate, guiding the optimization of air conditioning systems. This ensures the best operational parameters, maintains data center safety, and simultaneously reduces energy consumption, aligning with the “Dual Carbon” target.

Technical requirements and testing standards for fluorocarbon cooling liquid in immersion liquid cooling systems

According to statistics, the total power consumption of data centres in China will account for 3% of the national electricity consumption in 2021, and is expected to continue to grow at a rate of 15% to 20% in the future. The power consumption of data centres is mainly focused on the IT equipment itself and the cooling system, accounting for 85% of the total power consumption of data centres.

It clearly defines the technical requirements and testing methods for the new generation of fluorocarbon cooling liquids in immersion liquid cooling systems, providing technological support for achieving the “Dual Carbon” goal in data centers.

Coordination of computing power, electricity, and heat: White Paper on the comprehensive energy technology development of data centers

This white paper proposes a new solution for the comprehensive energy of data centers, combining computing power, electricity, and heat. With a focus on green and low-carbon development, it advocates for coordinated planning and scheduling between the “computing power network,” “electricity network,” and “heat network.” The goal is to tap into the interactive potential of upstream energy supply, midstream computing tasks, and downstream waste heat recovery, enhancing energy efficiency, increasing renewable energy consumption capability, and reducing operating costs and environmental impacts.

In-depth research report on China’s liquid cooling data center market (2023)

In 2023, the Chinese liquid cooling data center market is expected to experience a staggering 53.2% growth, reaching a market size of 15.4 billion yuan. Experts predict that the maturity of the industry ecosystem will be a key factor in the explosive growth of the liquid cooling market. Various ecological chain manufacturers and service providers are actively promoting industry standardization, injecting strong momentum into market development.
