Dutch data center operator EcoRacks plans to fill a new data hall with ‘immersed computing’ equipment from liquid cooling startup Asperitas.
The partners aim to install enough kit to support roughly 300kW by the end of 2017.
Asperitas’ water-cooled oil-immersion system uses natural convection to circulate dielectric liquid, with each of its AIC24 modules supporting up to 22kW of pure IT power.
It has also installed a test rig at the Vienna Scientific Cluster and found a partner in Qarnot, the French high performance computing service provider, which acts both as customer and value-added reseller.
EcoRacks hopes that the technology will attract high density cloud customers to the data center. The company operates a single facility in Eindhoven, North Brabant, which is entirely powered by renewable energy sources.
