Overcoming Tomorrow’s IT Barriers

We’ve said it before: corporate fortunes these days are increasingly tied to IT. So it follows that IT hurdles can easily hold businesses back. GRC & Dell Technologies make it easier for organizations to leap these hurdles and keep pushing ahead.

What are some of these hurdles to achieving success? Many Information and communication technology (ICT) professionals have spelled them out, notably Intel’s Senior Director of Infrastructure Systems Product Management, Steve Gillaspy. 1

Four of Gillaspy’s points we consider to be particularly strong:
  1. Hyper-growth and hyper-scaling epitomized by edge computing
  2. Hyper-density to increase efficiency while cutting CAPEX, and OPEX
  3. New workloads such as Big Data, AI/ML/DL, and IoT
  4. New hardware, notably FPGAs, GPUs, and ASICS

A formidable list for sure. And yes, you also need to make sure you can deploy assets quickly, while tempering energy consumption.

Clear the Hurdles with All-in-One Immersion Cooling
Server Systems

The solution is having agile, energy-efficient infrastructure that doesn’t place limits on cooling, growth, and location flexibility. This is precisely why we’re working with Dell Technologies: to help data center operators quickly procure, deploy and scale best-in-class server/immersion cooling combinations virtually anywhere — including the edge – with All-in-One Immersion Cooling Server Systems.

Through the seamless integration of powerful Dell EMC PowerEdge servers with our ICEraQ™ and ICEtank™ modular immersion cooling systems, IT leaders can now easily purchase an all-in-one high-performance cooling server solution through either GRC or Dell Technologies OEM | Embedded & Edge Solutions group.

In doing so, they can join the likes of the U.S. Air Force, the Department of Defense and the NSA, all of whom are currently using GRC ICEtanks and ICEraQs to achieve their IT objectives.

What Hurdles, Where?

GRC Overcoming IT Hurdles

So, how do our All-in-One Immersion Cooling Server Systems help operators tackle the fearsome foursome of IT hurdles mentioned earlier? Quite effectively.

  • Dell EMC PowerEdge servers are ideally suited for new workloads like AI and IoT
  • Fast procurement, deployment, installation, and configuration of these all-in-one immersion-cooling server systems speeds edge deployments, enabling hyper-growth and hyper-scaling
  • The proven performance and reduced infrastructure of GRC’s cooling solutions increases efficiency while lowering CAPEX and OPEX
  • The high rack densities we can achieve (up to 200 kW) “beat the heat” generated by GPUs, FPGAs and ASICS

What’s more, with these systems, customers can count on immediate energy savings, space consolidation and worry-free server reliability.

About Single-Phase Immersion Cooling

Single-phase immersion cooling is fast becoming the only viable solution for leaping over the hurdles Gillaspy and others have brought to light. Our systems immerse Dell EMC PowerEdge servers in racks filled with a non-conductive coolant called ElectroSafe™, which provides 1200X the heat capacity of air. Heat from the servers is easily absorbed by the coolant and quickly expelled from the rack. The result is a very energy-efficient system with a cooling capacity up to 200 kW/rack*.3

Notably, these systems have no need for raised floors, eliminate CRACs and CRAHs that add cost and complexity, which can severely limit location flexibility as well.

Fast-Forward Your Future

The future is never certain. But certain challenges lay ahead for companies looking to leverage their IT assets to be successful. Offering breakthrough cooling, tremendous convenience, flexibility, and efficiency, GRC & Dell Technologies can help data center operators forge ahead with confidence.
