Conscious Data Centre Solutions

Submer and RNT Rausch join forces to deliver high tech and sustainable cooling solutions

Conscious Data center Solutions

RNT Rausch and Submer announce a partnership to deliver high-density immersion cooling server and storage solutions that are designed for various data centre (DC) workloads.

Partners “in Green”

But, what is immersion cooling? It is the amazing technology that mixes liquid and electronics and works  far more efficiently than any other cooling methods! It consists of submerging servers, storages and other IT hardware in a non-toxic, non-conductive single-phase immersion coolant.

Why is immersion cooling so important for the data centre business? DCs all over the globe are considering immersion cooling as THE alternative strategy to reduce operating costs in general and the electricity bill in particular. By using Submer immersion cooled tanks, any type of DC can achieve the lowest PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) possible.

When to consider the implementation of immersion cooling systems? You are always guaranteed a reasonable return of investment (ROI), no matter when you decide to implement immersion cooling. However, the most profitable option is making immersion cooling the technology choice right at the beginning of the planning phase of the project. If you are designing your new data center or thinking about adapting an existing one, the earlier you choose your cooling method, the more efficient the outcome will be. There are a number of key indicators which can help you decide if the time is right to implement immersion cooing:

  • Imminent growth: Running out of space and no extra capacities available for more growth
  • Cost and power efficiency: reduce high (energy) costs and even benefit from the re-use of heat
  • Sustainability KPI’s: Meet your most important data centre key performance indicators like available capacity by key resource, PUE, temperature and humidity standards, zero waste of water, hot spot occurrence and duration, and more with ease.

Global Facts & Trends

As the datacenter industry grows, so does its impact on the environment. The trend towards digitalisation of many of our day-to-day tasks and our increased use of video streaming services, smartphones and video calling has lead to astronomical growth in the amount of data we produce. The need for change has never been higher than it is today.

Sustainability has become a buzzword for the industry over recent years but as governments around the world begin to wake up and acknowledge the impact data centers have on the environment, many companies are looking for solutions which deliver tangible results and help meet their goals. Immersion cooling is growing in popularity thanks to its ability to improve efficiency and reduce the use of natural resources without sacrificing neither density nor power.

The Benefits of Immersion Cooling

The technology allows you to address several challenges, from business and operations to sustainability and efficiency. Implementing immersion will have a positive impact on many areas of your business and help to increase margins.

Immersion cooling is the right choice for any datacenter that is looking to be at the forefront of innovation, and lead the way towards a greener, more environmentally friendly industry. The facts speak for themselves, can you really afford to wait?
