    Liquid immersion cooling solution from Vertiv

    Vertiv, a global provider of critical digital infrastructure and continuity solutions, today introduced the Liebert VIC, its first liquid immersion cooling solution for high density-data centers.

    The solution was developed in partnership with GRC (Green Revolution Cooling), the leader in single-phase immersion cooling for data centers. Available throughout Asia, Australia and New Zealand, the Liebert VIC offers improved cooling efficiencies in dense computing environments that increasingly support data-intensive applications such as the Internet of Things (IoT), edge computing and automation.

    “Vertiv has dramatically increased its commitment to R&D and the innovation of energy efficient and sustainable infrastructure support technologies,” said Stephen Liang, Chief Technology Officer at Vertiv. “The Liebert VIC joins a new generation of reliable thermal, power and IT management products that help data center and telecom customers to meet their efficiency goals.”

    The Liebert VIC is a single-phase immersion cooling solution that can support high-density loads of up to 100 kW per rack, utilizing warm water. It uses the ElectroSafe dielectric liquid coolant, an odorless, non-toxic, single-phase coolant which is both electrically and chemically inert and has 1,200 times the heat capacity of air. This higher heat capacity means that servers with high heat densities can be cooled more effectively, reducing cooling energy costs up to 95%.

    “Liquid immersion cooling is increasingly becoming an attractive option for many data center and colocation facilities, as it not only supports high-compute environments but also promises improved efficiencies, sustainability and reliability compared to traditional cooling solutions,” said Dhruv Varma, vice president of Business Development, APAC at GRC.

    “Demand for a wide range of compute-intensive applications, including faster streaming platforms for both video and gaming, requires even more latency-free computing power,” said Chee Hoe Ling, vice president for Infrastructure Solutions, Vertiv Asia. “With Liebert VIC, our customers can meet their high density objectives and rely on this highly efficient thermal solution option to cost-effectively deploy high performance computing options to their customers.”

    The liquid cooling technology used by Liebert VIC reduces environmental disturbances such as moisture, dust and poor air quality. In addition, use of warm water cooling enables a highly efficient and low operating cost solution. The Liebert VIC can be deployed in any location as it is less dependent on geographical climate. Its modular design enables it to be deployed quickly within weeks, minimizing the need for data center space construction or renovations.

    Boomi certified by SAP, giving customers confidence,
    saving time, resources

    Boomi, a Dell Technologies business, and leading provider of cloud-based integration platform-as-a-service (iPaaS), has announced that its Boomi aXis and Boomi Enterprise Connectors have achieved SAP certification as integrated with SAP NetWeaver technology platform and with SAP S/4HANA

    The SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) has certified that Boomi aXis for SAP ERP and SAP S/4HANA and Boomi Enterprise Connector: Boomi “AtomSphere Integration 20” integrates with SAP NetWeaver and S/4HANA using standard integration technologies. Boomi for SAP solutions help organizations to implement flexible digital integration platforms to deliver data on demand from SAP and third-party applications.

    SAP S/4HANA is the next-generation business suite, built for the SAP HANA platform, with on-premises and cloud deployment options. It is designed to act as the digital core, helping customers drive digital transformation across their entire organizations, taking advantage of the award-winning, role-based user experience of SAP Fiori.

    In today’s economy, data is the fuel for delivering a differentiated, integrated experience for customers, employees, and partners. Many business leaders rely on data from various sources, like SAP, to perform analysis which can require significant time, resources, and tools. With these certifications, customers can simplify how they utilize data for business optimization and critical decision making. With these SAP-certified products, customers can easily tap into the Boomi AtomSphere Platform to instantly find the data they need, create a fabric of pervasive connectivity across their entire ecosystem, and deliver integrated experiences to all their key users.

    Boomi continues to broaden its SAP strategy for third-party solutions following last year’s release of Boomi aXis. These certifications further enable customers to save critical time and resources and extend trust in Boomi solutions to continue their SAP S/4HANA journey.

    WWZ, a large Switzerland-based utility services company offering quadruple play telecommunications, energy, gas, water, and heating solutions, realizes the advantages of Boomi aXis with the Boomi AtomSphere Platform.

    “To continue to strengthen our market position, we created a new line of services to deliver fiber as a subscription to our install base of 60,000 cable-Internet customers,” said Stefan Willi, chief technology officer for WWZ Energie AG.

    “One of our largest challenges was to extract a high volume of SAP data continuously and with ease to feed various applications within our ecosystem. We needed to find ways to reduce time and complexity within the new subscription service stream. Using Boomi, we were able to reduce the time from 16 weeks to two days, by leveraging pre-defined SAP templates and exchange data efficiently between applications to achieve our business goals,” he adds.

    With Boomi aXis, customers have reported business transformations and innovations, saving significant time when accessing data-on-demand to create new services.

    “Boomi is on a mission to help our customers modernize how they access and work with critical data,” said Ed Macosky, head of product at Boomi. “This validation from SAP of Boomi’s newest SAP integration offerings gives our customers added confidence in trusting our solutions, and the flexibility they need to address their toughest business challenges.”
