TEF and Submer

10 March, 2021. Barcelona, Spain. For immediate release.​ Today, SUBMER, a leading innovator in advanced immersion cooling solutions for Datacenters and Cloud and Edge computing, is delighted to announce the installation of its award-winning technology, the SmartPodX and Micropod at a state of the art showroom in Sydney.  The installation is part of its ongoing partnership with The Engineering Factory (TEF), an Australian-based distributor focused on increasing the efficiency and sustainability of datacenters. The deployment is the first of its kind in Australia.

The solution will be displayed at The Engineering Factory’s headquarters in Sydney, where customers will be able to book a slot to receive a live demo of Submer’s immersion cooling technology. This will give potential customers the chance to have hands-on experience with the technology and really begin to understand how immersion cooling can improve their IT operations, as well as help them improve their efficiency and sustainability. Customers will be able to ask questions and get a closer look at Submer’s innovative technology, including its SmartPodX and Micropod, its newest solution described as a datacenter in-a-box.

The impact of the installation

At present, there is a battle happening throughout the datacenter industry; the demand for high compute density continues, while the pressure on companies to adopt green technologies that reduce the impact on the environment grows. As industries like AI and blockchain continue to grow both in terms of size and their significance for the economy, there is a great need to find technologies that can deal with these challenges. Traditionally, adopting more sustainable technologies can mean sacrificing power, speed, and performance. However, this is not the case when immersion cooling is adopted. 

Immersion cooling is the practice of submerging computer components (or full servers) in a thermally, but not electrically, conductive liquid (dielectric coolant). Immersion cooling offers datacenters the ability to keep up with the increasing demand for higher power density along with many other advantages such as a reduction in CO2 levels, power usage, and better Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Additionally, liquid cooling offers protection from the surrounding environment which could damage the hardware.

About Submer’s Solutions

Submer’s technology has been specifically designed to utilize single-phase immersion cooling, which empowers users to effortlessly scale their operations while simultaneously saving space and energy and increasing compute capacity. As part of the agreement, The Engineering Factory has set-up a state-of-the-art showroom with Submer’s SmartPodX and MicroPod platforms for all to see. The SmartPodX is a compact, modular LIC solution with >100kW dissipation capacity and a 1.02 PUE. Accommodating 21” and/or 19” HW and a flexible busbar system supporting multi-zone 12v & 48v configurations.

The MicroPod incorporates Submer’s industry-leading technologies with a compact, modular, plug-and-play, datacenter-in-a-box configuration that allows for fast deployment in any location, including direct sunlight and an easy plug-and-play installation with an unrivalled energy footprint.

From a customer perspective, the deployment provides the opportunity to adopt Submer’s proven technology through a strong regional distributor that is ready to deliver turnkey deployments at scale.

 “Submer is delighted to partner with TEF to bring our solutions to Australia. TEF is a natural choice as a distributor.  Innovation is at the heart of everything at TEF, a value shared by both companies. We’re confident that the partnership will be of great value to both companies and play a crucial role in Australia’s drive towards a more sustainable future, particularly within the datacenter sector” .

Daniel Pope, CEO of Submer.

“As an advocate of change, it was imperative to align our business to partners that were/are at the forefront of innovation. In the data centre industry, Submer is the innovator in infrastructure”. 

Bass Salah,  Principal of The Engineering Factory.

Salah continued. “It is exciting for us to land the agreement with Submer to be the primary distributor in Australia. We still have a little work to do in educating the market on liquid immersion cooling and its benefits, but most customers are very interested once they understand how the technology works. Now that we have Pods  operational at our showroom at Macquarie Park, customers can see the benefits first hand.”

The partnership which was announced in October 2020 has allowed Submer to expand its reach to Australia, a country that is passionate about green technology and a key driver in implementing cutting-edge technology that accelerates efficiency at many levels, including TCO, the conversation around increasing cost efficiency, and the smarter use of natural resources to increase sustainability in the datacenter industry. The deal has also enabled Submer to strengthen its position in the APAC market. 

The partnership has enabled TEF to offer its customers award-winning immersion cooling technology and contribute to its company goals of enabling and facilitating change and innovation through sustainable technologies
