Submer's Webinars

The Importance of Education and Sharing Knowledge

April 17, 2019

Why

The agora (/ˈæɡərə/; Ancient Greek: ἀγορά agorá) was a central public space in ancient Greek city-states. The literal meaning of the word is "gathering place" or "assembly". The agora was the center of the athletic, artistic, spiritual and political life of the city. We decided to start the webinar initiative as a virtual agora, where to meet and share knowledge, as an attempt to educate and create content always accessible and freely.

The webinars (together with our blog) are for us like speakers' corners, where our guests can freely talk about their experience and share their point of view on different topics: from datacenter design, to Immersion Cooling integration, from the environmental and social impact of datacenters to best practises to limit the electricity waste, etc.

What and When

So far we have held three webinars, trying each time to tackle the HPC and datacenter world from a different angle.

HPC Immersion Cooled

In February, With our special guest, Daniele Rispoli, we look at HPC immersion Cooled: how Immersion Cooling applies to a HPC installation, the economics, the practicality, the challenges, the benefits and more.

IT Hardware Design Considerations for Immersion Cooling

In March, Alain Wilmouth, CEO of 2CRSI and Daniel Pope, CEO of Submer, walked us through the IT Hardware design considerations to be taken into account when you decide to use Immersion Cooling.

The Future of Power-Efficient Datacenters

In April, John Laban, from the Open Compute Project Foundation (OCP), helped us to identify all points of electricity waste in the delivery of power to datacenters and HPC installations in our first webinar broadcasted live on our YouTube Channel.
