Immersed Computing has been developed by the Dutch cleantech company Asperitas, which launched their liquid cooled data centre in a box solution one year ago. Already in an early stage the innovation has been recognized as a cleantech innovation by the Dutch governmental body Netherlands Enterprise, which granted an innovation grant during the R&D phase of Asperitas. Prior to the market launch their technology was selected to be listed as an energy efficiency solution for industry users in The Netherlands, allowing for a tax deduction when investing in Immersed Computing technology specifically.
EcoRacks is deploying a dedicated Immersed Computing data centre hall in their Eindhoven facility. The project is a direct upgrade of their facility to serve high-density customers. With the Immersed Computing systems of Asperitas EcoRacks is facilitating 300 kW of IT power on a 40m2floorspace and reducing the need for cooling systems for this dedicated hall to a 1% power share only. According to EcoRacks the technology is allowing for a drastic decrease of CAPEX and OPEX while being able to facilitate high density demanding customers looking for a scalable infrastructure solution.
Asperitas Immersed Computing systems are developed for flexible and scalable deployment with limited infrastructure requirements. The project is selected for a DEI grant specifically for the energy efficiency impact.
Asperitas will be showcasing the EcoRacks project, sharing technology developments and announce new partnerships at CloudFest in Germany from the 13-15th March, 2018.
