GRC | December 28, 2022
Green Revolution Cooling (GRC), the leader in immersion cooling for data centres, announced today the launch of its first annual Data Center Sustainability Survey, which will gather feedback from industry professionals on what is working and where there is need for improvement.
Participants in the survey will be asked eight short questions about their approach to sustainability and how their organization is working to reduce its carbon footprint. GRC is also interested in gathering stories about sustainability efforts in these mission-critical facilities; the successes, setbacks, and anything else related to data center sustainability.
Some of these stories will be featured in GRC's webinar on February 15th at 11:00 a.m. ET. Participants whose stories are selected will receive a $100 Amazon gift card or a donation made to the Rainforest Alliance in their name. The Rainforest Alliance is an international non-profit organisation working to make responsible business the new normal at the intersection of business, agriculture, and forests.
Results from the survey will not only help us better serve the industry, they’ll provide a much-needed benchmark for understanding sustainability in the data center ecosystem, providing insight to all of us in the industry on how to be the best stewards possible for our planet.”
Gregg Primm, VP of Marketing at GRC.
Green Revolution Cooling is The Immersion Cooling Authority®. The company's patented immersion-cooling technology dramatically simplifies data centre cooling infrastructure deployment. Enterprises reduce their data center design, build, energy, and maintenance costs by eliminating the need for chillers, CRACs, air handlers, humidity controls, and other traditional cooling components.
GRC's solutions are used in twenty-one countries and are perfect for next-gen application platforms such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, high-performance computing (HPC), 5G, and other edge computing and core applications. Their systems are environmentally resilient, sustainable, and space efficient, allowing them to be deployed in virtually any location with little lead time.

Kofax | March 13, 2023
Kofax, a leading Intelligent Automation platform for digital workflow transformation, recently announced the latest version of Printix, its cloud print management SaaS offering. Printix helps organizations with their all-cloud strategies and eliminates the need for print server infrastructure by giving them a full print infrastructure and environment that improves efficiency and productivity and saves money.
Printix supports Single Sign-on (SSO) with Microsoft Azure Active Directory and is deployable with Microsoft Endpoint Manager. The product is made to be scalable and can handle any number of users, multi-function devices (MFDs) and printers for mobile printing, secure and flexible printing, and document capture workflows.
Key features of Kofax Printix summarized:
Next-generation capture: scan or capture documents to the Printix Cloud and generate PDFs
Simple print management : manage centrally, the printers from web browsers; connect new printers from a computer, tablet or a smartphone
Print-later and print-anywhere capabilities: Users can send documents to a printer from the Printix app when they get to the printer or release documents at any time with the Print Later feature.
Automatic printer discovery: As users come and go, Printix lets users automatically find the print network, integrate printers and drivers, and set up or get rid of printers and print queues
Advanced Microsoft integration: Printix works well with Microsoft Azure Active Directory and can be easily set up with EndPoint Manager and Single Sign-On. This gives users, confidence and takes away the need for IT and administration work.
Complete support for network printers: Users can print to any printer from any device, as the system supports a diversified range of devices from different manufacturers
Rod Hughes, Vice President, Product Strategy at Kofax said, "This edition of Printix completely eliminates print servers from network infrastructure and replaces them with a secure, cloud-managed print infrastructure with next-generation integrated capture."

Infinitum | February 07, 2023
On February 06, 2023, Infinitum, one of the air core motor producers, launched, a brand new Aircore electrically commutated EC motor designed especially for data center’s cooling applications, reducing their power and energy consumption.
Customized for the data center cooling application's power, speed, and torque requirements, it enhances motor performance. In addition, it reduces energy consumption by about 10-15%, minimizing input current, reducing the wiring and protection urgencies of the electric unit, and thus saving costs on wiring, transformers, circuit breakers, and upstream electric infrastructure.
It features an integrated variable frequency drive (VFD), optimizing motor control and efficiency, with IoT connectivity to monitor critical equipment, BACnet and Modbus controllers, transforming building operations. It is about 50% smaller, lighter, more efficient, and quieter than traditional motors, using over 66% less copper than previous models with a sustainable circular lifecycle. Its modular design has reusable rotors, housing, and stators, increasing the model's life.
Senior Market Analyst at Interact Analysis, Blake Griffin, said, "Data centers are growing in size and energy intensity as the world's demand for data grows exponentially." He added, "Infinitum's smaller, lighter, high-efficiency motor systems are a key technology for reducing energy consumption and carbon footprint."
