“According to Hyperion Research, the High Performance Computing (HPC) worldwide market will grow at a healthy 9.8% CAGR to reach $19.6 billion in 2022. Accompanying this growth, in the company’s view, is a strong trend toward the use of liquid cooling to manage the fast-rising heat levels generated by increasingly large and more densely packed HPC servers.”

Murray Slovick, Editorial Director and Principal of Intelligent TechContent

In the last decade, we have witnessed a dramatic increase in the computational density and performance of HPC: the average peak performance of systems on the Top500 list of the world’s most powerful supercomputers jumped from 154GF (Giga Floating Point Operations per second) to 2.4PF (Peta, or one quadrillion, Floating Point Operations per second), a factor of 15,844.

The real question is… How long will HPC be able to scale, to keep on increasing their computational capacity in an economically sustainable way?

Together with Daniel Pope, CEO of Submer, and Diarmuid Daltún, CCO of Submer, we analysed the economics of Immersion Cooling applied to HPC and the benefits supercomputers can achieve by adopting such a sustainable, highly efficient cleantech.

Guest Speaker: Daniel Pope

CEO at Submer

Daniel Pope, CEO of Submer, started his first datacenter business when he was just 16 (later sold to Telefónica).

After that he started a long career as a Solution Architect and as a Director Architecture and Integration EMEA at Ingram Micro Cloud. In 2015, he founded Submer with Pol Valls Soler with the objective of changing how datacenters are being built from the ground up, to be as efficient as possible and to have little or positive impact on the environment around them (reducing their footprint and their consumption of precious resources such as water).


In our 9th webinar, together with Daniel Pope, CEO of Submer and Diarmuid Daltún, CCO of Submer, we analyzed the economics of Immersion Cooling applied to HPC.
