About the client
Submer provides best-in-class technology that enables data centres around the world to leverage the power of immersion cooling for HPC, hyperscale, data centres, Edge, AI, DL and blockchain applications.
Air-cooled data centres today consume 10% of global electricity output and will emit 2.75% of GHG emissions by 2025 (surpassing the airline sector) and potentially also become a large-scale water consumer. Liquid immersion cooling is the next generation of more sustainable data centre cooling technologies.
Submer’s innovative, patented technology uses modular tanks filled with a biodegradable electrically non-conductive liquid to cool data centre server units. The technology uses 50% less energy, 99% less water and 85% less real estate than traditional cooling, and future-proofs customers against evolving emissions regulations.
