TMGcore has launched a modular data center platform that uses robots to swap high-density servers immersed in coolant fluid. The OTTO platform is the most ambitious bid yet for a “lights out ” autonomous data center.
Data center rack densities are rising, and large enterprises expect that trend to continue, according to a new report from 451 Research, which suggests a growing opportunity for specialized cooling solutions, including liquid cooling.
Veteran data center innovator Scott Noteboom has joined immersion cooling startup Submer as Chief Technology Officer. Noteboom says Submer’s technology can evolve as a platform for new machine-optimized data center designs.
Rack densities are beginning to rise, and some companies specializing in liquid cooling for the data center industry are investing in growth. Others see more potential in the fast-growing esports market.
As we approach 2030, data centers will feature ” lots more application-specific silicon being cooled by water,” according to Suvojit Ghosh, the plenary speaker at DCD Enterprise New York.
Liquid cooling technology specialists Submer Immersion Cooling and ZutaCore are rolling out new designs at the Open Compute Project Summit 2019, which begins today in San Jose. The OCP demos reflect growing interest in high-density cooling among hyperscale operators.
