In the ICT society, the number of Internet-connected devices and sensors continues to grow astronomically. Handling the huge amount of heat generated by data centers and IT devices is an urgent issue to ensure stable system operation as well as the health of the global environment. Fujitsu has developed a novel liquid immersion cooling system that cools down servers by completely immersing them in liquid. This system won the 2018 Energy Conservation Grand Prize (for the first time) and the Environment Minister’s Award for Global Warming Prevention Activity (second year in a row, sixth time overall). For this article, we interviewed Takashi Yamamoto, leader of the R&D project, about the process for commercializing this technology and its future potential.

Extreme weather events are reported all over the world. The need for technologies to help prevent global warming continues to rise. The liquid immersion cooling system developed by Yamamoto’s team reduces the entire server system’s power consumption by nearly 40% compared to those with conventional air cooling systems. Because it can easily demonstrate effects even in severe environments, people worldwide are paying close attention to the system.
