Submer Joins Open Compute Project

Amsterdam 1-2, 2018: Open Compute Project Regional Summit

October will be a really exciting month for Submer! Our team will be on the road to conferences about everything that moves around the IT and cooling world. We will also take part in conventions to present the SmartPods to the international audience. Next week, Submer Technologies will be in Amsterdam for the inaugural regional summit of the Open Compute Project (OCP).

The Open Compute Project’s mission is to design and enable the delivery of the most efficient server, storage and data center hardware designs for scalable computing. These designs are then shared among companies, including Facebook, IBM, Intel, Nokia, Google, Microsoft, Seagate Technology, Dell, Rackspace, Cisco, Goldman Sachs, Fidelity, Lenovo and Alibaba Group.

“Submer is a true believer in the OCP model and strategy for high density computing. Combining the OCP model together with immersion cooling will empower the future of HPC by delivering unprecedented density and efficiency way above the 100 kW/rack mark.”, says Daniel Pope, co-founder of Submer.

“This is why Submer is taking part as a OCP Member in the newly created Advanced Cooling Solutions subproject. This subgroup is tasked with defining the blueprints and standards around OCP equipment in immersion cooling by working closely together with ODM’s (Original Design Manufacturers), other immersion vendors and end users, Submer already has designs and prototypes for OCP-ready immersion cooling SmartPods that are being validated with the subgroup and rolled-out during this year.”, explains Pol Valls Soler, co-founder of Submer.

The SmartPod Lands at Flexiscale

The SmartPod in the Land of Albion

September is usually the month when everybody goes back to his/her normal life, after some time off for vacation. Everything start anew: school, work, etc.
We, at Submer, never stop working, not even during summer (okay, some of us did take deservedly some days off). A lot of planning and testing is being done to prepare the new version of the SmartPod, Submer’s Immersion Cooling solution.
A very exciting season is about to start, lots of events are on schedule and we are already warming up to get off on the right foot.

Five Myths about Immersion Cooling Debunked

What You Need to Know about Liquid Immersion Cooling

After having come across several articles that clearly set out to spread myths about Liquid Immersion Cooling and how difficult adoption, operation and maintenance can be, I would like to address these claims one by one and prove that they are untrue or are delivered with a false pretext. Often Direct Liquid Cooling refers to On-Chip Cooling and I fully understand the reservations people may have towards that specific technology.

How to Calculate the PUE of a Data Center

The importance of PUE

Cooling, air conditioning and energy for computing (most likely in that order) are the key factors that determine ongoing energy costs in every Data Center. This hardware is not only expensive to run but also expensive to purchase (not to mention UPS, generators, the building itself, lighting etc.) and makes it very expensive to build a new data center or to refit an old data center or repurpose an existing property. With traditional air-cooled data centers, maintaining low levels of humidity and temperature (not to mention the not so obvious benefits of liquid immersion cooling) is extremely important to ensure correct operation of the IT-Hardware.

Submer and CERN: A Strategic Collaboration Agreement

Submer’s SmartPod brings high-density computing and immersion cooling to CERN, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research.

Barcelona, Spain, July 5th 2018.

Submer Technologies, leading Immersion Cooling Cleantech is delighted to announce a collaboration with CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research. CERN is one of the of the most important laboratories for particle physics in the world, located on the French-Swiss border, with its headquarters in Geneva.

The SmartPod, the cutting-edge Immersion Cooling solution by Submer, will be installed and tested at the LHCb (Large Hadron Collider beauty) experiment, one of the seven particle physics detector experiments collecting data at the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) accelerator at CERN. In particular, LHCb is an experiment set up to explore what happened after the Big Bang that allowed matter to survive and build the Universe we inhabit today.

Submer around the World

Submer goes East…

Co-Founders of Submer, Pol Valls Soler and Daniel Pope and Head of Sales Diarmuid Daltún have been traveling pretty much non-stop since March 2018, when Submer switched gear and came out of R&D and prepared to bring Immersion Cooling to the world.

For some time now, interest in our solution has not only been coming from Europe and the Americas, but also quite a lot from Asia from traditional data centers, telcos, hosters, crypto-miners and enterprises. We decided to head to Asia and put together an itinerary taking us to Taiwan, China, Vietnam and Malaysia.
