It’s still a scary thought: dunking a high-performance server into a vat of fluid, turning the power on, and hoping sparks don’t fly. But maybe we should be equally scared by something else: continuing to build data centers with lifespans well into the 2030s that are singularly dependent upon airflow for cooling. How sustainable is an industry that spends more to power rotating fans than solid-state processors?
The Dunk Tank Reconsidered: How OCP May Yet Immerse Your Servers
Rising data center power density and fluid innovation are fueling new momentum for immersion cooling.
