A $35 million funding for Immersion cooling specialist Iceotope Technologies illustrates growing investor confidence in the future of immersion cooling, which appears poised to move beyond its historic niches in high-performance computing (HPC) and cryptocurrency.
The robot-driven data center is closer to reality with the introduction of a robotic system to swap servers from a tank of cooling liquid. Is this another step towards more “lights out” data centers? Rich Miller, explores the past, present and future of robots in the data center.
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.
