Submer provides active single-phase Immersion Cooling to servers and storage and the partnership would enable customers to keep RNT’s Tormenta Varioscaler Server and BigFoot Storage System’s cool in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way.

Immersion Cooling is a technique used to cool components of IT equipment and involves immersing the computer components in data centers and server rooms in a thermally conductive and dielectric fluid. This practice cools the devices and transfers heat from the source to the liquid.

“Going beyond traditional norms and challenging the status quo is part of our DNA and we are always looking for smart ways to increase density and performance, become more sustainable and reduce our carbon footprint,” said Sebastian Nölting, CEO at RNT Rausch. “However, drowning high-end electronic devices in a liquid was a golden rule that I never wanted to question or even violate. This scenario perfectly describes the situation facing the entire IT industry. We need to accept that anything is possible and rethink how IT works and how data centers are built. I look forward to filling many Submer pods with our server and storage solutions and reshaping the data center landscape.”

“This collaboration enables RNT Rausch and Submer to offer a complete and sustainable HPC turnkey solution designed specifically for customer needs,” said Daniel Pope, CEO and co-founder of Submer Technologies.

Traditionally, computer hardware has undergone immersion cooling since the early 1960s, with some of the first supercomputers being fully immersed in a dielectric fluid. Today, the method is becoming increasingly popular with data centers looking for innovative ways to reduce costs, save space and increase computing power.

The partnership between Submer and RNT Rausch would allow companies of all sizes to deploy their own data center almost anywhere. A small room is enough to house the solutions, and no air conditioning units are needed to cool servers, or expensive and sophisticated fire suppression systems. The room would need simple access control for just one person, as well as occasional electrical adjustments to keep it safe.

For RNT Rausch, sustainability starts with the hardware and building of the server. The company always works with suppliers that are the most sustainable option, and also ensures that servers are transported in the most environmentally friendly way possible. Both the Tormenta Varioscaler and BigFoot Storage solutions would thus be sustainable options for companies looking to transform their operations.

Companies that can deploy server and storage solutions with Immersion Cooling systems will also be able to take advantage of the higher density computing environments that Submer will provide, giving them an edge over their competition while increasing efficiency.

“This collaboration enables RNT Rausch and Submer to offer a complete and sustainable HPC turnkey solution designed specifically for customer needs,” said Daniel Pope, CEO and co-founder of Submer Technologies. “By working together, we ensure that customers have easy access to technology that solves density and space challenges and also helps them reduce their environmental impact. Such partnerships are vital to the future of the industry.”
