Submer Delivers Immersion Cooling to Digital Realty Trust

Paving the way towards Next Generation Datacenters

Barcelona, Spain & Ashburn, Virginia

Digital Realty Trust’s ($DLR) Ashburn datacenter campus was built to support the forefront of data infrastructure technology. Submer is proud to deliver the latest high-performance cooling systems to Digital Realty’s Ashburn campus to support sustainable, high-density HPC computing applications.

In the Heart of Datacenter Alley

Digital Realty Trust has always taken the lead in driving datacenter innovation and sustainability forward. As a leading innovator in hyper-efficient Immersion Cooling technology, Submer provides solutions with higher performance and higher compute density at less than half the energy consumption of traditional air-cooled environments. In February 2020, the first SmartPodX unit was installed on-site in Digital Realty’s Ashburn campus.

“Modern HPC applications require more processing power and higher densities. But datacenters also need to work toward sustainable development best practices”. “Digital Realty Trust recognizes both of these imperatives and is taking the lead in supporting innovative technologies that address these challenges.”.

Daniel Pope, CEO of Submer

Among the many solutions designed for the smart datacenters of the future, Submer has a complete line of Immersion Cooling systems to help HPC, hyperscale, datacenter, Edge, AI, deep learning and blockchain applications, increase efficiency by significantly lowering cooling and space costs while achieving unrivalled compute densities. 

The SmartPodX – the very first commercially available OCP compatible LIC solution – is designed to datacenter standards for HPC and hyperscale deployments and will be available for public viewing in Digital Realty Trust’s Ashburn Campus location, Building L.
