Switch Datacenters is allocating an area for testing purposes using iXora equipment. Working closely with their customers, Switch is thriving towards a more energy efficient future. By using the residual heat from the servers, Switch can provide hot water to the neighboring building, infrastructure to do so is already in place. Using this technology reduces the CO2e footprint while reducing energy usage for Switch, its customers and the users of the heat.
Edgar van Essen, Managing Director of Switch Datacenters about the collaboration with iXora: “As most data centers we are keen for new developments in energy reducing matters. We were among the firsts to implement several on-chip liquid cooling and early immersive cooling solutions. The large tanks used for current immersive cooling are highly efficient, but not very practical. We believe the iXora solution will be a gamechanger in this field and look forward to the test results we will be seeing with our customers in the upcoming year”.
“iXora is pleased to board an innovative datacenter group this early in the development process. This really shows the need from the market and the opportunities the future will bring.” Job Witteman explains, “We know there is a growing need for datacenters to implement immersive cooling but see a lot of reluctance because most only know the large tanks currently on the market. The solution iXora is offering is much more practical to implement in existing infrastructure and will offer an ease to use system for the engineers”.
