Tech company ResetData has entered into a multi-year partnership with Macquarie Data Centres to introduce Spanish provider Submer’s immersion-cooling technology into Australian data centres.
Following the agreement, ResetData has taken floor space in one of Macquarie Data Centres’ Sydney facilities, which it will use to run Submer’s immersion-cooled racks.
This news follows Macquarie’s recent opening of its IC3 East data centre facility in Sydney, which was designed to support the Federal Government, hyperscalers, global multinational corporations, and companies across Australia.
ResetData will provide disaster recovery-as-a-service (DRaaS) within Macquarie’s data centre facilities, and enable GPU-as-a-service (GPUaaS), which will bolster 3D rendering, architectural design services, cloud gaming, institutional blockchain, and the metaverse use cases.
Driving Australia’s Digital Economy and Virtual Innovations
Group Executive of Macquarie Data Centres David Hirst observed that “our partnership with ResetData enables increasingly important technologies such as GPUaaS to drive Australia’s digital economy. It’s good to see how technologies come to market which enable the digital applications of the future.”
Although ResetData is a new entry in the data centre industry, ResetData’s services, backed by Submer’s technology, are aimed at reducing energy and water resources required to run data centres, which the firm notes should enhance data latency while ensuring data centre operations are more environmentally-sustainable.
In addition, with Submer’s immersion-cooling technology, the data centre’s carbon dioxide emissions would be reduced by up to 45% as compared to traditional water and air-cooling technologies. Submer’s technology also creates zero wastewater, reduces physical carbon footprint by up to 90%, and heat wastage generated by the infrastructure is set to be 99% recyclable.
ResetData is currently targeting its services at data-heavy users, including the government, gaming industry, video product industry, and rendering industry, who will increasingly find themselves needing to balance demands for data and cost considerations, with environmental concerns.
Bass Salah, co-founder and managing director at ResetData, affirmed that ResetData’s data centre services will be increasingly relevant as Australia picks up its pace on digital transformation and virtual technology innovations.
“As an example, the New South Wales Government is building a digital twin of the entire state. It will replicate all levels of infrastructure, street scale and built environment in a single pane which requires significant processing power once this becomes completely populated. It’s vital that governments are leveraging the most efficient data centre technologies.”
Salah continued by noting that “it’s in projects like these, and the investments hyperscalers are making, where we see the beginnings of the metaverse – a virtual world with which people engage through digital avatars – take shape. Very few people and companies are thinking about the underlying infrastructure needed to power this new virtual world, including data centres which are the heart of it. Without these considerations, the real world will suffer.”
