ResetData signs deal to use Macquarie data centres

Australian cloud and data centre provider ResetData has reached an agreement to host equipment in Macquarie Data Centres’ facilities for a disaster recovery as a service offering.

The agreement will mark the first time the Submer immersion cooling technology, already in use by Intel, Dell and other major providers, is deployed in Australia.

Submer pods are able to reduce equipment’s CO2 emissions by 45%, while recycling nearly all the heat generated and contributing zero wastewater.

ResetData co-founder and managing director Bass Salah said the technology enables the efficient delivery of GPU as a service, a new class of cloud offerings with big potential in 3D rendering, architectural design services, cloud gaming and even institutional blockchain.

The technology could also serve as a cornerstone to enabling the new concept of the metaverse, he added.

“As an example, the New South Wales Government is building a digital twin of the entire state. 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,” he said.

“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.”
