HRM-10X released

After successful showings at the Next-Gen Datacenter Cooling Summit (Woerden, The Netherlands) and Slush 2021 (Helsinki, Finland), iXora officially releases its second concept model. The HRM-10X is based on the same technology as the previous HRM-3X. Additional features include improvements in the ease of use during maintenance. Based on market demand the cassettes have been scaled to increase the number of individual cassettes in one rack. Product information

Testing results

Our second Proof-of-Concept is performing extremely well; it's fast, it's stable and it cools perfectly to preset temperatures. Matching the added heat it does show quick response and keeps temperatures well within limits. At lower temperatures we see a lot of condensation as expected; the cold plates are without any insulation at this phase, so we're loosing performance and attract moist. Nothing unexpected fortunately

Second Proof-of-Concept

While most are enjoying their holidays, we're making progress. Together with cooling partner Scala Scientific we're finalizing the last bits and pieces of our second Proof-of-Concept. This one will be the first to cool the actual full cassettes down to -30°C. But obviously most tests will be performed around 20~25°C to avoid condensation.

Second time in 'de Telegraaf'

De Telegraaf' interviewed us for the second time! This time a double interview with Job and Vincent (Houwert), about the product and the challenges data centers are coping with. Some technical background on the technology and how we came up with 'closed immersive cooling' and our vision towards the future.

Job in live interview

For a live video podcast, our CEO Job Witteman was interviewed about our coming products, the datacenter market and the challenges the data centers are struggling with at the moment. Talking about energy, politics and potential technical solutions. Interesting watch! See more at our press-page.

First nationwide press coverage

One of the Netherlands largest newspapers, 'de Telegraaf', is publishing a story about us and our invention. The article is about patents and the legal costs and procedures that come with them. We were asked for a short interview through our Patent office, Patentwerk. You can view the article in our press area.

Software and IR results

The first 'StemOS' version is being deployed over our sensor boards; this is our modulair firmware that can run on both ESP32 and STM32 based testing/sensor pcb's we're designing for performing various tests. Next to that we've got our IR-measuring device so we can capture IR/heat images of how the heating liquid is behaving inside the cassettes. All according to our designed specifications so far!

First Proof-of-Concept

Our Proof-of-Concept is performing above expectations; even without active cooling the system is already stable and at almost the same core temperature as with aircooling. At the moment we're only testing with loads up to 500 Watts (0.5kW), so by far not in target range. But this already gives an idea how effective the cooling can work with the heating components and liquid acting as one cooling body. Interesting and promising!

Proof-of-Concept first results

The first version of our immersive cooling cassette was delivered today by our metal manufacturer. Since all tests with the liquids and sensor boards have been successful, we can now start with inserting the first complete server setups into the liquid and perform testing on that. We'll be using some common brands of mainboards with processors from both AMD and Intel.

Testing the liquid

After the first barrels of liquid arrived last week, testing has been started. The liquid will be tested at -80°C, -60°C, vacuum / drycooled at -50°C and longer periods of -20°C. Multiple experiments will be done, the liquid on it's own and the liquid with some of our custom designed sensor boards in them to see how electronics behave in the liquid and at the very low temperatures.
