Submer – a leading innovator in advanced immersion cooling solutions for datacenters and cloud and edge computing – is delighted to announce the launch of its latest solution, the MegaPod. The MegaPod is Submer’s latest innovation on its journey to revolutionize the datacenter industry and help it become more efficient and sustainable.  The MegaPod will be available from 17th March, 2021

The Impact of the Launch

Datacenters are rethinking the way they operate. With industries such as blockchain, AI and gaming experiencing growth, datacenters are under pressure to improve power capacity and performance while simultaneously reducing their impact on the environment in adherence with new policy requirements. Traditionally, adopting more sustainable technologies may have meant sacrificing power, speed, and performance. This is not the case, however, when adopting immersion cooling

Immersion cooling is the method of submerging computer components (or full servers) in a thermally, but not electrically, conductive liquid (dielectric coolant). Immersion cooling enables datacenters to tackle increasing demands for higher power density, while at the same time reducing CO2 levels, power usage and providing an overall better Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Additionally, immersion cooling offers hardware protection from the surrounding environment which can damage hardware.

About the Solution

The MegaPod is purpose-built to address the specific pain points faced that the datacenter industry is currently experiencing. It incorporates Submer’s innovative immersion cooling technology with a compact, modular, prefabricated datacenter-in-a-box configuration, allowing for fast deployment in any location and simplified commissioning with an unparalleled energy footprint.

The solution, which is aiming for TIER-Ready certification from the Uptime Institute,  will incorporate Submer’s SmartPodXL technology, allowing for up to 800 kW of compute power in a 40’ modular footprint. The MegaPod can be purchased as a full turnkey solution through multiple recognised modular datacenter partners, enabling customers to have a fully operational datacenter in less than 16 weeks.

Launching a product like the MegaPod is the next logical step for Submer. There has been great demand for our integrated solutions, thanks to their ease of deployment and unprecedented TCO benefits.  Additionally, the MegaPod streamlines the supply chain to deploy immersion cooling, which can sometimes, like with traditional DC builds, act as a barrier for customers. It’s the perfect solution for those companies wishing to easily expand their edge capabilities, while also improving their efficiency and sustainability. When needed, thanks to our partners, Submer is now in a position to deliver a full modular DC all the way down to the actual compute and software.

Daniel Pope, CEO of Submer.

From concept to implementation, the design of the MegaPod has been a smooth ride, thanks to the solid foundation provided by the SmartPodX platform as the main building block. It’s exciting to see our product continuously develop to meet the needs of the industry and really make an impact with our technology.
