Joining GRC in the initiative are Dell Technologies, Intel, HTS, eSmart Systems, RED, the Texas Advanced Computing Center, Texan by Nature, Alfa Laval, Halston Group, and Total Data Centre Solutions. Each session will be moderated by Mission Critical Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief, Amy Al-Katib.
Participants will discover the latest in data centre cooling over five weeks in August. This initiative is designed to increase awareness of immersion cooling technology and its advantages over air cooling within the data centre community. Data centres are facing increased compute and density requirements, power constraints, environmental pressures, and budget limitations – and GRC asserts that liquid immersion cooling is the answer to these challenges.
Throughout August, GRC and its partners will provide educational sessions with end users, server manufacturers, and other data centre stakeholders. Additionally, in Week 5 attendees will get a sneak peek at GRC’s newest cooling system, specifically designed to increase the profitability and resiliency of Digital Asset Mining operations while reducing their energy consumption and complexity.
The lineup is as follows:
In this session, participants will hear from the leading processor manufacturer, sustainability-focused NGOs, a global provider of heat transfer solutions, a premier data centre design group, and the leading authority on liquid immersion cooling.
In this session, attendees will learn how GRC and Dell Technologies are collaborating on comprehensive solutions – from facility design to server selection and heat reuse – that help operators transition their data centres to environmentally friendly liquid immersion cooling solutions, dramatically reducing power and water use while also vastly increasing density, scalability, and efficiency.
In this session, GRC and its industry partners will provide a tutorial on how starting anew with immersion cooling streamlines the design build process, slashes CapEx & OpEx, simplifies operations, and delivers enviable sustainability metrics.
This session will guide attendees on how to transform their data centre to a more powerful, efficient, and sustainable operation over time with immersion cooling. Participants will walk away with a plan for a transition, that is aligned with their purchase cycle, and how to avoid operational disruptions.
Attendees will hear from Ryan Skene, Director of Finance at HTS, and other authorities who will tackle topics such as building more efficient and sustainable operations, responding quickly to changes in the cost of energy, when overclocking makes sense (and when it does not), and novel, alternative approaches to powering mining. They will also review illustrations of financial models that enable maximum profits, and provide attendees with a sneak peek at GRC’s forthcoming crypto-mining-oriented liquid immersion cooling system.
With the success of GRC’s first ever Liquid Immersion Cooling Awareness Month last year, the 2022 program is an opportunity to dive deeper into the technology and its use cases in today’s demanding data centre environment.
