Asperitas and maincubes Partner to Deliver Immersion Cooling Solutions in Dedicated Colocation Suites

May 18, 2020

AMSTERDAM, May 18, 2020 — Asperita announces a partnership with European data center, maincubes. The two companies will start offering Immersion Cooling Solutions in dedicated immersion cooling colocation suites in the maincubes Amsterdam AMS01 data center. AMS01 is also home to the European Open Compute Project (OCP) Experience Center, while Asperitas is a leading OCP standards contributor in the field of immersion cooling.

maincubes has its European colocation data centers located in Amsterdam (AMS01) as well as in Frankfurt (FRA01). These dedicated immersion cooling colocation suites in the maincubes Amsterdam AMS01 colocation data center, a facility located right next to Schiphol Airport, are intended to offer enterprise organizations, cloud service providers (CSPs), and telecom providers a fully aligned data center suite for this unique cooling technology. Immersion cooling is especially catering to high density compute applications like AI (artificial intelligence), HPC (high performance computing) and machine learning requirements.

“These colocation suites are uniquely developed for housing Asperitas’ immersion cooling technology,” said Joris te Lintelo, Vice President at maincubes. “We’re delighted to partner with Asperitas in their quest to conquer world markets with their proven immersion cooling solutions. Our jointly offered Immersion Cooling Solutions also meet the expectations of OCP-associated data center users, as it may bring them high additional efficiencies for OCP use cases.”

Clients within Telecom, Automotive, Oil & Gas, Finance

Asperitas’ immersion cooling technology allows for high-density equipment setups to be operated in an energy efficient manner. Energy-intensive hardware deployments may continue to function at the highest possible utilisation rate by using this technology. At the same time, it reduces the data center space needed for AI, HPC and machine learning workloads.

The European OCP Experience Center located in maincubes’ Amsterdam AMS01 data center matches Asperitas’ membership of the Open Compute Project and their efforts to drive global OCP data center standardization for immersion cooling by contributing technical specifications to the OCP community.

“The presence of the European OCP Experience Center in the maincubes AMS01 data center is attracting quite some organizations interested in OCP-associated innovation. This really matches our efforts within the OCP Advanced Cooling workgroup on immersion cooling,” said Rolf Brink, Founder and CEO of Asperitas. “The type of customers maincubes is serving from its colocation data centers in Frankfurt and Amsterdam includes well-known DAX-listed companies active within automotive and the telecommunications sector. This too is a perfect fit with our own client base of high-profile customers and the kind of companies we’re partnering with. Asperitas is currently gaining interest from renowned companies within telecom, automotive, oil and gas, and finance.”

Dell Technologies and Shell

Asperitas has announced an OEM partnership with Dell technologies, while last month, Shell and Asperitas announced the launch of their co-developed Shell Immersion Cooling Fluid S5 X. The new fluid for immersion cooling is designed for high cooling efficiency, excellent flow behavior as well as thermodynamic properties.

“Backed by partnerships like that with Dell Technologies and Shell, Asperitas is successfully delivering its immersion cooling technology as an High density compute and HPC-focused add-on to existing data center environments,” said Oliver Menzel, CEO of maincubes. “The technology’s advantages are not limited to OCP use cases alone though. Also for our wider client base and customer potential including cloud service providers and enterprises, Asperitas’ immersion cooling technology might be a very interesting solution to consider.”

European OCP Experience Center

Operated by data center vendor Rittal and OCP Solutions Provider Circle B, the European OCP Experience Center located in the maincubes AMS01 data center in Amsterdam is intended to help CIOs, CTOs, IT managers and data center managers understand the impact of OCP designs on their facilities. The OCP Experience Center also allows for testing of OCP-based solutions relevant to specific IT environments.

The Asperitas/maincubes partnership announcement follows the news of maincubes expanding its European presence with a new, highly modular thus flexible 8,500 square meter colocation facility in Frankfurt (FRA02) to be built on five floors. Offering 100% SLA availability and 100% carbon-neutral operations, as with the other maincubes facilities, the new data center will feature state-of-the-art architecture, materials and technologies.
