CLEVELAND/EDE, THE NETHERLANDS – Today, data centers are primarily cooled by inefficient, expensive air conditioners that consume unnecessary energy. Lubrizol’s immersion cooling ecosystem, using CompuZol™️ immersion fluids, addresses the limitations posed by air-cooled methods by delivering turn-key, sustainable solutions that enable superior thermal management and more infrastructure density.
Now, Netherlands-based iXora BV, the leader in rack mountable immersive cooling, has become a certified partner of this ecosystem, coupling its innovative closed cassette server housing solution exclusively using Lubrizol’s CompuZol immersion fluids to deliver a unique and versatile cooling system to the marketplace.
After recent announcements regarding partnerships with other key industry stakeholders in the chip manufacturing, digital infrastructure, and service and support markets, Lubrizol’s partnership with iXora provides another critical piece to its ecosystem solution in the fast-growing market of immersive cooling. iXora’s unique modular architecture used in combination with CompuZol immersion cooling fluids, protects customers’ enterprise infrastructure investments and simplifies serviceability, easing key barriers to market adoption.
“We are excited by our common vision for immersion cooling and how engineering excellence and innovation can achieve those ambitions,” said Job Witteman, CEO and cofounder of iXora. “iXora’s rack mountable, silent immersive cooling solution per individual server, is a well-suited partner for Lubrizol’s industry leading immersion cooled ecosystem solution. Fully compatible with industry-standard 19” racks, it will allow data centers to migrate to immersion cooling without having to change existing workflows and infrastructure.
“And, when paired with Lubrizol’s CompuZol™️ immersion fluids, it will provide the market with a powerful solution to maximize data center power efficiency while minimizing data center and carbon footprints.”
“Lubrizol’s immersion cooled ecosystem solution delivers advantages to today’s data center operators ranging from lower energy costs and higher computing densities to longer server life, all through a more sustainable solution than conventional air cooling,” said Matt Joyce, Vice President, Corporate Business Development for Lubrizol. “Our partnership with iXora adds a unique immersive cooling solution to our ecosystem, enabling the market to accelerate the adoption of game-changing immersion technology using today’s infrastructure.”
iXora will share additional details in the NL Tech Pavilion Hall A/C 55332 during CES, set for Jan. 5-7 in Las Vegas.
