Immersion cooling solution to support HPC

Tech solutions provider Interactive has launched an immersion cooling solution in its St Leonards data centre in Sydney.

The organisation says the growing significance of artificial intelligence (AI), cloud compute and high-performance compute (HPC) has driven the need for businesses to maximise efficiency and return on investment of their HPC platforms, without compromising on reliability or power.

In addition to supporting HPC solutions that can’t be cooled by air alone, the immersion cooling solution will alleviate the cost of data centre cooling and its impact on the environment.

By 2025, 50% of chief information officers will have performance metrics tied to the sustainability of the IT organisation, as business leaders look to reduce costs and improve efficiencies, according to Gartner’s Top 10 Technology Trends for 2023.

Located at Interactive’s St Leonards data centre, the immersion cooling solution is now available to companies operating across Australia.

The new solution is expected to deliver on sustainability and support better HPC capability to strategic locations than is possible with conventional air-cooled racks, and will enable customers to scale and leverage next-generation technology.

Lizzi Long, General Manager Data Centres and Business Continuity at Interactive, said the company was thrilled to expand its services by offering immersion cooling in Australia.

“At Interactive, we pride ourselves on providing customers with bespoke data centre solutions which cover all aspects of the data centre life cycle, not just pieces of the puzzle.

“The new generation of chip technology is central to the future of AI, research, 5G and cinematic special effects, and very soon they will not be able to be cooled by air alone.

“To ensure Australia remains a location of choice for high-tech organisations, we need to guarantee our infrastructure can support customers with high-performance compute needs,” Long said.
