GRC (Green Revolution Cooling) has announced a multi-year collaboration with Intel (NASDAQ: INTC) focused on empowering the global data centre industry to reduce the environmental impact of digital infrastructure.

As a result of this collaboration, Intel and GRC are working with data centre customers to develop and implement advanced immersion cooling techniques in future data centres.

As more processing power is becoming densely packed into servers to support compute-intensive applications such as artificial intelligence, data centre operators globally are striving to increase efficiency while also increasing compute, all within a smaller footprint.

As part of their work, Intel and GRC engineering teams are collaborating on testing the safety and reliability of immersion cooling technologies, while optimizing system performance of immersion-cooled racks.

In addition, the companies are working together to educate the market on the benefits of liquid immersion cooling technology through initiatives such as educational webinars.

Peter Poulin, CEO at GRC, said: “For many years we have had a valuable relationship with Intel. We are thrilled to share this partnership publicly with the entire data centre industry.

“As our world increasingly depends on digital tools, data centres have an opportunity to reduce their impact on the environment. Designed in direct response to joint customer engagements, this collaboration represents our commitment to raise awareness of this opportunity and create more sustainable, energy-efficient data centre solutions.”

Mohan Kumar, Senior Fellow, Intel Corporation, added: “Our collaboration with GRC aligns with Intel’s goal of supporting cutting edge technologies that provide increased efficiency and density for data centre and edge deployments.

“Through this collaboration, we are able to provide customers with custom solutions to meet their computing and cooling needs to help ensure that data centres operate in a more environmentally sensitive way.”
