With the summer months quickly approaching and data center managers increasing efforts to keep their operations cool, GRC (Green Revolution Cooling), a specialist in single-phase data center liquid immersion cooling technology, announced today the first annual Liquid Immersion Cooling Awareness Month, to take place this August.
GRC says its Liquid Immersion Cooling Awareness Month is intended to further educate the data center community on the technology and its advantage over air-cooled facilities.
According to GRC:
Liquid immersion cooling is capable of reducing the energy consumption of today’s data centers while enabling high-density deployments. Implementing immersion cooling at any phase of a data center’s lifecycle will allow operators to minimize both capex and opex, enable high-density deployments, and significantly reduce energy consumption.
The month-long educational initiative comes at a critical time, contends GRC, "as data center energy usage continues to skyrocket; enterprises and colocation facilities are under pressure from both customers and suppliers to find ways to reduce their corporate carbon footprint and become more sustainable; and the recent attention that Bitcoin mining energy consumption has garnered has only fueled demands."
Throughout the month of August via a series of webinars, GRC will be joined by a number of data center end-users, analysts, and industry experts who will help educate operators and others in the industry through case studies that illustrate how liquid immersion cooling results in highly efficient and cost-effective data centers. Also joining the discussion will be several server manufacturers.
The company contends that when data centers deploy liquid immersion cooling, they see a significant reduction in energy when compared with traditional air-cooled facilities, as well as realize expanded capacity without increasing their existing footprint or over-expending of precious capital.
“Liquid immersion cooling provides a dramatic and long-lasting effect on data center energy consumption,” said Larry Kosch, Director of Product Marketing at GRC. “With airflow management still the predominant form of data center cooling, I look forward to Liquid Immersion Cooling Awareness Month increasing understanding of the technology and its economic and environmental benefits, as well highlighting the ease in which air-cooled data centers can be seamlessly retrofitted to liquid immersion cooling.”
