25 Jun 2018 Frankfurt - Dutch cleantech company Asperitas has joined Boston Limited at ISC 2018 in Frankfurt to demonstrate a joint Immersed Computing datacentre-in-a-box solution - their first such collaboration since they announced their partnership at CloudFest, Rust, Germany in March this year.
Immersed Computing is a product portfolio developed by Asperitas. The concept is based on total liquid cooling or immersion cooling. Their first solution, a plug and play datacentre-in-a box, launched one year ago at the Cloud Expo Europe event in London.
Total immersion ensures that no oxygen can interact with the IT components, preventing oxidation. Thermal shock is greatly reduced due to the high heat capacity of liquid and stress is greatly reduced thanks to the immersed environment only allowing minor temperature fluctuations. These factors eliminate the root cause for most of the physical degradation of micro-electronics over time.
As well as the hardware benefits, Immersion Computing brings sustainable, efficient and flexible data centres anywhere, including high-density data centres for emerging technologies.
On the stand there was a live demonstration featuring hardware from Supermicro, NVIDIA and AMD, configured by Boston, to be compatible for immersion.
Manoj Nayee, Managing Director of Boston, stated: "Since forming our partnership in Q1, our R&D teams have been working closely together to bring our combined strengths to our customers. Full immersion offers extremely compelling enhancements to our liquid cooling portfolio of high density compute platforms that drives down TCO. It is our pleasure to premier our combined efforts at ISC, on the Boston stand, I am certain attendees will be impressed by the many benefits of a datacentre-in-a-box."
Founder and CEO of Asperitas Rolf Brink added: "Since March, Asperitas and Boston have collaborated to bring Immersed Computing to the next level. Boston brings over 25 years of experience in the industry and an incomparable knowledge of their product catalogue. It is through this collaboration we see huge opportunity not just for our partnership, but for the industry, as we develop data centres of the future that are both environmentally friendly and cost-effective in more ways than one."
