Abstract
ABSTRACT: Green Revolution Cooling, an Austin, Texas-based manufacturer of submersion cooling systems for high-efficiency, high-performance data centers, aims to produce a commercially viable, all-in-one containerized data center cooling solution for cost-effective and expedited data center build-out and expansion. Featuring total submersion of computer equipment in high performance dielectric coolant, the technology replaces air conditioning and air-handling infrastructure with liquid cooling. BENEFIT: Containerization of submersion cooling technology from Green Revolution Cooling enables the elimination of all costly air-handling equipment associated with traditional data centers. As a result, build-up and build-out of a data center becomes up to 60% less expensive, with up to 50% less continuous energy use up to 400% more heat dissipation per square foot of data center space. The applications of the technology are myriad but the product generally will appeal greatly to data center operators that are confined by one or more of the following factors: physical space, resource cost, build-out time, hazardous environment, and compute throughput. This containerized solution, when fully developed during the course of the Phase II award, will dramatically reduce data center installation time, data center build out costs, and capital expenditure requirements for new data center space. The containerized solution will essentially be a"plug-and-play"data center.
