GRC Partners with HPE to Provide Immersion-Cooling Systems

GRC has entered into an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) partnership with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) to deliver its liquid-immersion cooling system ICEraQ.

Formerly known as Green Revolution Cooling before shortening to GRC in 2018, the company is a single-phase immersion cooling system provider and already a Supermicro OEM Direct Partner.

“There is a growing opportunity to bring the latest technology capabilities to market to support emerging applications such as AI and edge computing,”
Phillip Cutrone, vice president and general manager, Worldwide OEM at HPE.

“By collaborating with GRC to integrate its ICEraQ with our agile, high-performing infrastructure solutions, we are offering our customers flexible options for system cooling.”

The new partnership is set to enable the company integrate ICEraQ with HPE servers for its customers to have an alternative cooling capabilities in a pre-packaged product offering.

“We’re thrilled with the value this partnership offers to data centers around the world,”
Jim Weynand, Chief Revenue Officer, GRC.

“With this product bundle, customers can easily integrate high-density HPE equipment into any existing data center without adding the normal time and expense of altering legacy data center infrastructure to accommodate today’s newest applications platforms.”

The company revealed that with the ICEraQ Micro, customers can easily support the high-density HPE equipment and handle over 2000 watts of heat load per U of rack space. This will enable the creation of a high-density zone in any existing data center while removing the thermal constraints that may exist in legacy air-cooled data centers.

“Any HPE server type, without regard to heat load, can be deployed quickly into an existing white space, on the Edge, or in a greenfield site with minimal infrastructure requirements,” adds Brandon Moore, solutions architect at GRC.

Although the GRC ICEraQ is yet to appear on HPE’s product pages, it is however, expected that the OEM agreement will have HPE promote this company’s product.
