During the Dutch National Data Center Day on June 13, Asperitas will open a new showcase location for Immersed Computing at the atom86 (Schuberg Philis) datacenter in the Amsterdam Schiphol airport area.
Immersed Computing is a concept developed by Asperitas, the cleantech startup from Haarlem, for extremely efficient and sustainable datacenters. The foundation of Immersed Computing is a method of cooling known as total liquid cooling in which IT hardware is fully immersed in liquid.
Today, most data centers are cooled with air systems, but Asperitas is aiming to change this. With good reason, datacenters can reduce 50% of their energy footprint, take 5 times less space and reuse 99% of the energy used as warm water up to 60 degrees Celsius. For cloud providers, there are even more benefits, the performance of servers can be greatly improved, so that less hardware can achieve the same performance. For cloud providers, this is attractive because the cost of software licenses can be significantly reduced.
