07 September, 2021 Barcelona, Spain. For immediate release.​ Today, SUBMER, a leading innovator in advanced immersion cooling solutions for Datacenters and Cloud and Edge computing, is proud to announce the launch of a  new self-contained Immersion cooled solution, the EdgePod. The Pod is the result of the company’s latest partnership with Sonic Edge and is specifically designed for the HPC and Edge industry, using Submer’s award-winning Immersion cooling technology. The platform will be available to purchase direct from Sonic Edge and can be deployed in as little as 12 weeks. 

The impact of the Submer and Sonic Edge partnership

The HPC and Edge industry itself has seen exponential growth over the past 10 years thanks to the technological advancements in telecommunications such as 5G, IoT and the wider adoption of AI throughout different industries. The HPC and Edge industry have unique requirements when it comes to infrastructure thanks to their need for high-powered compute, low latency and positioning in harsh environments.  Figures now suggest that the market was valued at USD 39.1 billion in 2019 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.5% from 2020 to 2027. The growing need for high-efficiency computing continued diversification, and expansion of the IT industry, and the increase in preference for hybrid High-Performance Computing (HPC) solutions are some of the factors which could explain the growth rate. At present, there remains a gap in the market for infrastructure that can deliver high-powered compute swiftly and efficiently while also ensuring it meets a business’s sustainability requirements, now and in the future.

The EdgePod is a highly customizable solution that can be built to support both collocation or sole occupancy and is equipped with physical and virtual security systems to support either configuration. EdgePods are designed to operate autonomously and can be built to specific tier-level configurations to aid business goals and meet customers current requirements. 

The combination of Submer’s SmartPod X Immersion cooling platform and Sonic Edge expertise will enable customers to perform complex HPC workloads at either the Edge or On-Premise locations. The EdgePod has been purpose-built to withstand the harshest weather and environmental conditions the Sonic Edge Immersive Pods are ideal for Manufacturing, Exploration such as Oil and Gas, Telecommunications and Distributed Edge applications. The solution incorporates Submer’s innovative Immersion cooling technology including its proprietary SmartCoolant Immersion liquid, with a compact, modular, prefabricated datacenter-in-a-box configuration that allows for fast deployment in any location and simplified commissioning with an unparalleled energy footprint. Simplifying site selection by including completely dry-cooled (zero water requirement) options.
