The Data Center Frontier Show

Dec 5, 2022

Immersion cooling, in which servers are submerged in liquid coolant, has a high "cool factor" but low adoption. On this week’s show, talk with JD Enright about all things immersion cooling. In our wide-ranging discussion, we explore how hyperscale operators and the crypto sector are approaching the use of immersion, the potential for its use in edge computing, and how TMGcore is serving the market, including its robotic system for swapping out submerged servers.

As President and CEO of TMGcore, Enright is working to enable more companies to take advantage of the benefits of immersion cooling, which supports higher power densities, and also offers potential economic benefits by allowing data centers to operate servers without a raised floor, computer room air conditioning (CRAC) units or chillers 

Here’s a timeline of topics JD and Rich discuss on the podcast:

  • 1:00 – Background on TMGcore and what it does. 
  • 3:00 – Trends in data center cooling, rack density, and where immersion fits.
  • 9:00  The role of hyperscale providers in new technology adoption, and their interest in immersion cooling.  
  • 13:00  Why the cryptocurrency sector has embraced immersion cooling and deployed it at scale.
  • 17:45 – .How immersion cooling can play a role in the growth of edge computing.
  • 24:00  -- TMGcore's development of a robotics system to manage servers in an immersion enclosure. 
  • 28:30 -- What's ahead for TMGcore and its immersion technology.
