Optimize data center performance with our broad range of data center cooling solutions.

Energy use in data centers and high performance computing is undergoing explosive growth, consuming up to 2% of the global electricity supply in 20211. For example, since 20151 energy use in traditional data centers has increased up to 60%, while in crypto mining data centers it has risen by up to 3,300%. Continuous improvements in hardware performance are increasing heat generation, and advanced computing techniques, such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, are driving higher computational workloads. In such a dynamic environment, effective thermal management through liquid immersion cooling solutions has never been so important.

The challenge: Managing data center energy demand and growth

Liquid immersion cooling solutions

By effectively removing heat compared to traditional air cooling, dielectric liquid can enable thermal management of high TDP processors2. Immersion cooling can also help increase hardware lifespan2 and lower cost2. Superior thermal management can translate to both lower pPUE3 and less water consumption2.
Achieving the right balance between heat transfer and flashpoint is essential for optimal server component performance. ExxonMobil’s PFAS-free immersion cooling products offer data center OEMs and end-users both high performance and the flexibility to customize thermal management to meet specific needs. Immersion cooling also enables rapid expansion of edge computing capacity within weeks, reducing response times to surges in demand. A wide range of immersion solutions is available, including immersion cooling tank and chassis cooling.
