25 August, 2021 – Barcelona – Today, SUBMER, a leading innovator in advanced immersion cooling solutions for Cloud and Edge computing, announced its latest collaboration with Intel to set and accelerate together the industry standards for adoption of immersion cooling; working holistically on all aspects covering from server components, to the immersion fluid and platforms.
The datacenter industry is at a crossroads; aware of sustainability goals it must meet and deciding on the next generation technologies that can help achieve them. Facility operators must apply greener and more sustainable datacenter designs to meet economic, social and regulatory goals. Adoption of immersion cooling technologies can help ensure that infrastructure is able to solve the challenges of today and power the use cases of the future.
The use of immersion is growing but to support adoption at scale standards, frameworks and guidelines around best practices for the use of the technology are key.
Submer’s collaboration with Intel will leverage both companies’ expertise and customer feedback to develop best practices for single-phase immersion cooling technology. Guidance from a consortium of other key industry leaders will help build a supply chain for scaling the technology to ensure datacenters are equipped to deliver a new generation of sustainable infrastructures. Intel will focus efforts on an open standard offering that supports scalable datacenter deployments from edge to cloud and work with the industries that will deploy these solutions. Intel has a wealth of experience in building scalable ecosystems through its global partner network. This is a crucial step for ensuring systems are compatible with standard server materials and meets the needs of a global industry.
“By embarking together on a joint mission to reshape the way that the industry currently operates, we’re setting the foundations for server OEM’s and operators to have a clear roadmap to transform the datacenter industry and achieve a significantly reduced operational footprint.” Said Daniel Pope, Co-founder and CEO of Submer.
“Recent innovations in immersion cooling techniques are helping to significantly improve the energy efficiency of data centers and enable organizations to address their sustainability goals,” said Mohan Kumar, Intel Fellow, Data Center and AI Group. “Our collaboration with Submer will allow us to address all stages of the immersion cooling value chain and offer a sustainable solution that will make a difference for our mutual customers.”
Driving sustainable innovation is fundamental to Intel’s technology roadmap, a key part of its commitment is exploring, developing and collaborating with liquid-cooled single-phase immersion technologies and supporting a robust energy management ecosystem for the datacenter and edge.
Founded in 2015, Submer provides best-in-class technology that enables data centers around the world to leverage the power of immersion cooling for HPC, hyperscale, data centers, Edge, AI, DL and blockchain applications. Headquartered in Barcelona, with offices in Virginia and Palo Alto, California, Submer consists of an international team of engineering, technological and business experts.
