Lubrizol and Submer have announced a partnership that will enable the next leap forward in data centre productivity, reliability, and sustainability with immersion cooling system solutions. This partnership will provide tailored and bespoke solutions for today’s complex data centre market and tomorrow’s evolving computing needs.
Data centres are largely cooled by extensive air conditioners, an inefficient and expensive cooling solution. Immersion cooling allows servers to instead be cooled directly at their source, cooling servers with a unique blend of advanced server tanks and patent-pending thermal management fluids will enable greater computing power, energy efficiency, and location flexibility. Bringing the capabilities of the companies together makes the necessary computing power accessible for more partners and more regions of the world where the standard air-conditioned cooled data centres were challenged due to temperature or poor air quality.
“Under current standards, data centre servers have a lifecycle of about 2-3 years, far short of the life of a typical server,” Matt Joyce, vice president of commercial at Lubrizol. “The partnership between Lubrizol and Submer unlocks the potential to create tailored solutions that will last the full lifespan of our partners’ servers, in the range of 5-10 years, while delivering needed thermal performance and compatibility with the systems. Unlocking this tailored and balanced performance means our partners will have a distinct advantage in today’s fast-growing market.”
“Our focus is always on enabling the next generation of cooling and automation technology for data and energy-intense environments,” Daniel Pope, Co-Founder and CEO of Submer, said. “Combining our fully integrated, highly-efficient and sustainable technologies with Lubrizol’s experience in formulation and testing means we can deliver on the promise of solving the challenges of today and power the use cases of the future.”
