Server immersion cooling technology from bitcoin specialist Bitfury is coming to the data center. LiquidStack launches today as a stand-alone company looking to address growing cooling challenges in cloud, HPC and edge computing.
Microsoft is test-driving immersion cooling technology used in bitcoin mining for adoption in its cloud. As powerful new AI hardware presents cooling challenges, Microsoft sees dunking its servers in coolant as a promising technology for future data centers.
BitFury will use immersion cooling to manage power densities of 250kW per enclosure. It’s the largest implementation yet of immersion cooling, which houses servers in enclosures filled with fluid, and pushes the boundaries of rack densities.
