GRC Designs Fully-integrated, Containerized, Cost-Efficient Data Center Liquid Immersion Cooling Solutions for the US Air Force

GRC, the leader in immersion cooling for data centers, today announced successful deployment of two modular, transportable data centers, at Hill Air Force Base near Salt Lake City in Utah and Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma City, OK. This deployment resulted in 18.1% less power required to run the servers and a reduction of 93.1% PUE, with a 41.4% overall reduction in total power use.

These installations of GRCs proprietary ICEtankTM immersion cooling solution address the USAF needs for turnkey, containerized data centers that can be deployed in less than 24 hours, in a wide range of environments, with reduced required support equipment and maintenance costs, and that can be remotely monitored and controlled. Based on the success of this project, GRC is working with the USAF to develop the next generation production units.

We are working with GRC on these data center deployments, said Mike Neri, Director Communications and Information at Hill Air Force Base. They worked closely with us to design a system to meet our unique needs for mobility and rapid deployment, and for data centers that can withstand harsh environments.

GRC ICEtankTM immersion cooling solution is a turnkey data center container with complete cooling and power infrastructure. This specialized installation for the USAF has resulted in 100% uptime for both containers (approaching three years of cumulative testing) and have significantly reduced power usage.

Working with the US Air Force on this project is exciting, said Peter Poulin, CEO of GRC. They subject their data centers to some of the toughest conditions weve ever seen. We were thrilled to work so closely with their team to deliver automated, efficient, easy to transport, low cost ICEtankTM data centers. I look forward to continuing this partnership and helping them build out future data centers.
