GRC announces licensing agreement with Nihon Form Services to tailor GRC's data centre immersion cooling technology for the Japanese market

16 Jul 2019 Tokyo, Austin - GRC, an expert in immersion cooling for data centres, has signed a new partnership and licensing agreement with Nihon Form Services (NFS), a Tokyo-based manufacturer of IT and communications equipment. Leveraging GRC's intellectual property, NFS will help tailor GRC's immersion cooling products for the Japanese market.

As one of the pioneers of immersion cooling for data centres, GRC has built a strong portfolio of patents over its ten years of existence. The company now has twelve granted patents with another nine patent applications pending. "We are thrilled to continue GRC's global expansion through this licensing agreement with NFS", stated Peter Poulin, CEO of GRC. "We've amassed a wealth of knowledge, expertise, and IP around our immersion cooling technology, over the last ten years. Licensing that IP to local experts like NFS will enable GRC to better serve key markets such as Japan."

GRC started to gain prominence in the Japanese market back in 2012 when it helped build the TSUBAME-KFC supercomputer at the Tokyo Institute of Technology. The company's immersion cooling technology helped the supercomputer top the Green500 list of the most efficient supercomputing clusters in the world, in 2013 and 2014.

As home to nearly 150 data centres, the Japanese market has grown into one of the largest data centre markets in Asia. However, the region poses some unique challenges in that it has its own data centre standards developed by the Japanese Data Center Council and enforces strict building codes intended to mitigate seismic risks. "The unique landscape and susceptibility to earthquakes present a challenge for all owners and operators. With the local expertise of NFS, we look forward to providing an exceptional customer experience while helping customers in Japan address their data center cooling challenges. We look forward to working with NFS to better serve the Japanese market with our patented data centre immersion cooling technology", stated Jerry Mayfield, VP of Customer Experience at GRC.
