Macquarie Data Centres adopts immersion cooling tech

Macquarie Data Centres has announced a partnership with ResetData, which will be providing Submer data centre cooling technology that will help reduce energy use.

The technology from Submer uses immersion cooling for servers and data centres and the company claims that it can reduce CO2 emissions by up to 45%, while reducing the physical cooling footprint by up to 90%. The heat produced by the hardware can be recycled and the cooling process does not produce wastewater. ResetData is also providing disaster recovery-as-a-service (DRaaS) for Macquarie Data Centre’s sovereign facilities.

ResetData Co-Founder and Managing Director Bass Salah said the technology enabled efficient GPU-as-a-service (GPUaaS), which could offer advantages for 3D rendering, architectural design services, institutional blockchain and possibly even the development of virtual worlds.

“As an example, the New South Wales Government is building a digital twin of the entire state,” Salah said. “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 centre 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. Very few people and companies are thinking about the underlying infrastructure needed to power this new virtual world, including data centres which are the heart of it, and without these considerations, the real world will suffer.”

Macquarie Data Centres Group Executive David Hirst said the partnership will expand the service offering by the company.

“Our partnership with ResetData enables increasingly important technologies such as GPUaaS to drive Australia’s digital economy. It’s good to see how technologies come to market which enable the digital applications of the future.”
