Today GRC and Asperitas launched, a new website with FAQs and facts about immersion cooling. The vendor neutral site provides comprehensive information and dispels a number myths that have been circulating throughout the data center industry.

According to a recent report from 451 Research, the demand of immersion cooling is expected to increase considerably due in part to high density deployments. Given this trend, it’s imperative that the facts about immersion cooling are laid out for the end-user community.

GRC is excited to partner with Asperitas to better educate the community about immersion cooling and its numerous benefits with high density applications and enabling more efficient data center operations,” said Peter Poulin, CEO, GRC. “The newly developed vendor agnostic website is a key tool for operators looking to educate themselves on immersion and get answers to technical questions about liquid cooling.”

In recent months, there have been a number of pieces of misinformation circulating about immersion cooling, such as the suggestion that the coolant is mineral oil or that the coolant is a fire hazard. There is also confusion between single phase and two-phase immersion cooling, which are very different approaches. Seeking to reduce confusion, debunk false claims, and avoid conflicting information in the market, Asperitas and GRC concluded that the industry would benefit by sharing their considerable experience with the impactful technology.

Asperitas is looking forward to working with GRC to provide credible and up-to-date information on data center immersion cooling,” said Rolf Brink, CEO, Asperitas. “It’s our intention to provide the global data center community this website to disseminate precise facts on immersion cooling, which we will update and expand gradually or when actual developments demand.”

The new website will help interested parties with a number of issues, including:

  • The difference between single phase and two phase immersion cooling
  • What a data center needs to use immersion cooling
  • What hardware can be used in immersion cooling
  • How you can reliably use optical networking in an immersed environment
  • Fire safety with immersion cooling
