Macquarie Data Centres has signed a multi-year deal with ResetData, an Australian-first provider using Submer data centre technology.
The partnership will see Submer cooling technology used in Australia for the first time, exclusively. Compared with traditional water and air-cooling technologies, Submer’s immersion cooling can reduce CO2 emissions by up to 45% and creates zero wastewater. It also reduces the physical footprint by up to 90%, and the heat generated by the infrastructure can be 99% recycled. Globally, Submer has partnered with tech giants such as Intel and Dell.
ResetData will provide disaster recovery-as-a-service (DRaaS) housed in Macquarie Data Centre’s sovereign facilities. The company is targeting growth within government, gaming, video production, rendering and other data-heavy industries needing to balance cost, environmental concerns, and fast-rising compute needs.
ResetData Co-Founder and Managing Director Bass Salah says the technology enables efficient GPU-as-a-service (GPUaaS), which will be a game changer in 3D rendering, architectural design services, cloud gaming, and even institutional blockchain. Beyond blockchain, he also sees the technology as a cornerstone to enabling the metaverse.
“As an example, the New South Wales Government is building a digital twin of the entire state,” he says. “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.
