  • What's the disadvantage of immersion cooling?

    You can't call 1-800-DELL to order your hardware and set it up next week.

    Also, at this moment of time, most hardware has been designed with air cooling in mind. This means we are often spending a lot of time to remove bulky heatsinks and disconnect fans. Big power connectors that are fine for air cooling (there is plenty of space to spare with air cooling) might be in the way to stack hardware in a density that would be possible with immersion cooling.

    The advantages far outweigh the disadvantage already now. But one can only imagine the true potential once hardware manufacturers discover how much smaller and more efficient they could design their hardware with full immersion cooling. Luckily for us, Intel and other manufacturers are looking ahead and start to offer hardware in denser form factors (ie. Intel® Xeon Phi™ DFF cards).

Global Projects

Hong Kong is one of the fastest-paced cities in the world. It has remained the world's freest economy since 1995, with low tax, no import and export restrictions, free trade and travel. Being located in the financial powerhouse and tech hub of Asia, we are well equipped to work on global projects. No matter how big, or small.

Hot & Humid

Most would consider Hong Kong's cramped living conditions, sky high property prices, and hazy skies as very challenging. When it comes to data centers, hot and humid climates are one of the biggest problems too. Hong Kong's power hungry infrastructure is a major disaster for the people's wallet and the environment. On the bright side, it's habitats like this that push companies to go the extra mile and make a change.
