ResetData, an Australian-first provider leveraging Submer liquid cooling data center technology, and Macquarie Data Centres, a division of Macquarie Telecom Group (ASX: MAQ), have signed a multi-year agreement. As a result of the partnership, Submer’s immersion cooling technology will be used just in Australia for the first time.
Immersion cooling by Submer offers zero wastewater operations and can cut CO2 emissions by up to 45% compared to conventional water and air-cooling methods, according to ResetData and Macquarie. Additionally, it can recycle 99 percent of the heat produced by the infrastructure, reducing the physical footprint by up to 90 percent. Global tech giants like Intel and Dell are partners of Submer.
ResetData will offer Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) based in the exclusive facilities of Macquarie Data Centre. Government, gaming, video production, rendering, and other data-intensive companies that must manage cost, environmental concerns, and rapidly increasing computing needs are among the industries the company is aiming to develop in.
Bass Salah, co-founder and managing director of ResetData, claims that Submer’s immersion cooling technology enables effective GPU-as-a-service (GPUaaS), which will revolutionize institutional blockchain, cloud gaming, and services for 3D rendering. In addition to blockchain, he views this technology as a key enabler of the metaverse.
“As an example, the New South Wales Government is building a digital twin of the entire state,” said Bass Salah. “It will replicate all levels of infrastructure, street scale and built environment in a single pane which requires significant processing power once this becomes completely populated. It’s vital that governments are leveraging the most efficient data center technologies.”
“It’s in projects like these, and the investments hyperscalers are making, where we see the beginnings of the metaverse – a virtual world with which people engage through digital avatars – take shape,” added Salah. “Very few people and companies are thinking about the underlying infrastructure needed to power this new virtual world, including data centers which are the heart of it, and without these considerations, the real world will suffer.”
According to David Hirst, Executive Director of the Macquarie Data Centres Group, the agreement broadens the range of services available at the data center campus.
“Our partnership with ResetData enables increasingly important technologies such as GPUaaS to drive Australia’s digital economy,” said David Hirst. “It’s good to see how technologies come to market which enable the digital applications of the future.”
