SUBMER, a leading innovator in advanced immersion cooling solutions, announced its latest partnership with OTG (Open Technology Group), a company with a wide range of expertise in the designing, implementation and maintenance of immersion cooling technologies.
As a result of the partnership, companies will be able to purchase Submer’s innovative immersion cooling technology and be at the forefront of sustainability. The partnership is the first of its kind in Brazil.
What does the partnership mean for the LATAM data centre industry?
The data centre market has exploded in the LATAM region over recent years. The market is expected to grow at 8.73% CAGR between 2022-2027. This is because of several different factors. There has been a rapid increase towards digitalisation over the last few years, particularly since the global pandemic.
There has been significant investment from key players in the colocation market such as Equinix, HostDime and Ascenty. The government has also introduced several initiatives focused on AI which has increased the demand for high-density compute. Longevity and sustainability of the growth appears to be a key concern for the local governments, with Brazil’s Energy Expansion Plan (PDE).
The plan aims to increase renewable energy installations to account for over 45% of the total primary energy supply by 2024. New facilities must adhere to current and future regulations and ensure they are investing in technology which is both sustainable and highly efficient.
Existing facilities must invest now in technologies that will help to future-proof their growth. Immersion cooling is widely accepted as one of the best methods to achieve this. Immersion cooling offers high-density compute with increased hardware lifespan while also dramatically reducing the environmental impact of facilities.
“The LATAM data centre market will grow in importance over the next five years. It is crucial that companies have access to technologies that will meet their needs in terms of power and density and sustainability,” said Fabio Gomes, Executive Director of OTG. “By joining together with Submer we are able to offer innovative technology that will future-proof client’s infrastructure for years to come.”
“Partnering with OTG really allows us to strengthen our position in the LATAM region. It’s great to see that customers and the government are really pushing for sustainable technologies and incentivising companies to invest in sustainable technologies like our SmartPodX,” said Daniel Pope, CEO and Co-founder of Submer. “We look forward to working with OTG and others in the future.”Click below to share this article
