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.

World Environment Day

A Planetary Crisis

“This is a planetary crisis… we are ruining the ecosystem of the ocean,” UN oceans chief Lisa Svensson told the BBC in a recent interview.

Yesterday, global citizens celebrated the World Environment Day. Commemorated every year on 5 June, World Environment Day was founded by the United Nations (UN) to encourage worldwide awareness about the environment and promote actions to protect it.

Cryptoeconomics

Ushering in the future of Digital Economy with Submer Technologies

Cryptoeconomics (a neologism composed of two words: “Cryptography” and “Economics”), is a very new field, triggered in 2009 by Satoshi’s adding economic incentives to P2P systems (bitcoin), a major change that will likely revolutionise commerce as we know it today.

What is Cryptoeconomics?

“[Cryptoeconomics is a] formal discipline that studies protocols that govern the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services in a decentralized digital economy. Cryptoeconomics is a practical science that focuses on the design and characterization of these protocols.”

Earth Day

April 22nd is an increasingly important date internationally and especially important for us here at Submer Technologies. Why? Because it happens to be Earth Day. Our entire raison d’être has to do with supporting technological progress with minimum possible impact on our wonderful planet, Earth.

Earth Day has been celebrated since 1970, the year in which senator Gaylord Nelson first encouraged American students to discuss and generate awareness around environmental issues. A mere 45 years later, Submer was born, a tech-company that concerns itself with helping data centre owner/operators, crypto miners, AI, 3D rendering and edge computing innovators progress without wasting precious resources (such as energy and water), while running a viable competitive business.

The Very Hungry Datacenter

Datacenters today consume more electricity than all of India.

According to the article “Much work needed to make digital environmentally sustainable economy” published in February 2018 by The Guardian, datacenters consume more than 6% of the world’s electricity, (more than the entire country of India) and they produce 2% of the world’s carbon emissions (almost as much as the airline industry).

Submer Immersion Cooling Lift-Off!

It’s all systems go at Submer Technologies since the beginning of March 2018. The revolutionary Barcelona based Immersion Cooling Company has successfully emerged from the pre-launch phase and is now ready and poised for prime time, to bring immersion cooling to hosters, cloud providers, regular datacenters, edge computing, cryptocurrency mining, blockchain and research datacenters.

Looking from the outside in, it may seem that things have been a bit quiet over the last months here at Submer, but let me assure you, that is definitely not the case! We have been busy with R&D, putting the best possible team together, ramping up our production, certification, all in all getting ready for big-time, which is coming right now.

With Immersion Cooling, our mission is to enable edge computing outside of the traditional datacenter, make datacenters more modular, compact, eco-friendly and highly efficient.

Immersion Cooling Leveraging Social Responsible Data Centers

data center efficiency

Welcome to the wave of the “socially responsible” data center, or not. The bottom line from the NGO Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) paper is that nearly half of the data centers do not define energy efficiency objectives. They don’t even have an energy efficiency plan in place.

One of the references analysed is the survey conducted by Digital Realty Trust in January 2013 which concluded that only 20% of the 300 North American data center companies with revenues of at least $1 billion and/or more than 5,000 employees have a PUE below 2.0, with the average at 2.9.

The main recommended actions coming from this paper to the medium-large data center are basically the following:

Will Data Centers implement Immersion Cooling?

 

cray_supercomputer_immersion_cooling

Since the 1960’s, supercomputers have been cooled with liquid. Some extreme density supercomputers such as the Cray-2 (released in 1985) and Cray T90 (released in 1995) used large liquid-to-chilled liquid heat exchangers and single or two-phase immersion cooling oils for heat removal.

Most of the supercomputer manufacturers have used, use or are trying to use immersion cooling. But what’s holding back on getting Immersion Cooling into the data center to cool commodity hardware? In our opinion, cost and comfort.
