“Our industry has reached the practical limits of air cooling. We founded LiquidStack with the sole purpose of driving continued performance gains in computing through our breakthrough technology and unmatched experience. We embrace all forms of liquid cooling, which outperforms air cooling across every possible metric: heat rejection capacity, energy efficiency, water usage, space utilization, flexibility and positive, sustainable climate impact. Our goal is to do more than simply change minds. We aim to change the world for the better.”

Joe Capes, CEO, LiquidStack

The New Cooling Imperative

Data centers are under pressure to drastically increase IT power density while improving energy efficiency and reducing use of resources. Simultaneously, chip manufacturers face increasing pressure to create more powerful processors – processors that require more cooling power than what can be achieved with traditional air cooling.

Liquid cooling enables data centers – to accommodate generative AI and HPC workloads that require unprecedented amounts of cooling capacity, even at the edge. Moreover, sustainability transparency for data centers is becoming mandatory rather than just a consideration. These changes are driving data centers to adopt liquid cooling for all or part of their facilities.

Made in the U.S.A.

The LiquidStack manufacturing site, R&D center and headquarters is located in Carrollton, Texas. In sourcing manufacturing enables a faster and more agile  response to the high global demand for liquid cooling being driven by r ultra-high TDP chips for generative AI and HPC workloads.

LiquidStack’s full range of liquid cooling solutions are manufactured on site. This includes our direct-to-chip Coolant Distribution Units (CDUs), single phase and two phase immersion cooling solutions and the company’s MacroModular™ and MicroModular™ prefabricated data centers. The site also hosts a service training and demonstration center for customers and our global network of service engineers and partners.

Our Vision

Pioneering and delivering high performance, cost-effective and reliable liquid cooling solutions to solve the most challenging thermal management needs of IT infrastructure in centralized and edge data centers around the world.

Our Mission

To leverage our deep experience and relentless drive to create, along with our customers and partners, a sustainable environment for high performance data center and edge cooling.
