The Dutch Ministryof Economic Affairs and Climate Policy is granting Asperitas and EcoRacks a so called Demonstration Energy Innovation (DEI) grant for the super energy efficient and first Immersed Computing® datacenter project in The Netherlands. A limited number of projects are selected for this grant every year to demonstrate innovative technologies with a strong potential environmental impact on an international scale.

Immersed Computing has been developed by the Dutch cleantech companyAsperitas, which launched their liquid cooled datacenter in a box solution one year ago. Already in an early stage the innovation has been recognized as a cleantech innovation by the Dutch governmental body Netherlands Enterprise, which granted an innovation grant during the R&D phase of Asperitas. Prior to the market launch their technology was selected to be listed as an energy efficiency solution for industry users in The Netherlands, allowing for a tax deduction when investing in Immersed Computing technology specifically.

EcoRacks is deploying a dedicated Immersed Computing datacenter hall in their Eindhoven facility. The project is a direct upgrade of their facility to serve high-density customers. With the Immersed Computing systems of Asperitas EcoRacks is facilitating 300 kW of IT power on a 40m2 floorspace and reducing the need for cooling systems for this dedicated hall to a 1% power share only. According to EcoRacks the technology is allowing for a drastic decrease of CAPEX and OPEX while being able to facilitate high density demanding customers looking for a scalable infrastructure solution. Asperitas Immersed Computing systems are developed for flexible and scalable deployment with limited infrastructure requirements. The project is selected for a DEI grant specifically for the energy efficiency impact.

Asperitas will be sharing more on the EcoRacks project, technology developments and announce new partnerships at CloudFest in Germany from the 13-15th March, 2018.
