ZELENDATA CENTRE provides colocation, infrastructure as a service, and software as a service, and its Supermicro® servers are being cooled by GRC’s ICEraQ™ liquid immersion cooling systems.

“Our goal is to provide infrastructure with lower operating costs, as well as being environmentally conscious,” said Goran Veljović, Sales and Marketing Director at E-Smart Systems. “Using the ICEraQ immersion cooling system provides critical services today and will meet the needs of future data center users, while enabling companies to be environmentally responsible in their choice of data center provider. As the first green data center in Serbia, we are excited for the ZELENDATA CENTRE to lead the way, enabling Serbians to embrace business performance using green technologies.”

One of the main motivators for using GRC liquid-immersion cooling was the need to protect the environment in a cost-effective way. Additionally, the data center will realize a lower initial cost, as well as a significant savings in the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), when compared to a traditional air-cooled data center. The main source of electricity for the data center is the MK Fintel Winds’ Košava wind farm in Izbiste. GRC’s immersion-cooling solution reduces electricity consumption of the cooling system at ZELENDATA CENTRE by 90%, or approximately 40% of the total consumption of the data center.

"We are thrilled to partner with E-Smart Systems to offer our ICEraQ Quad immersion cooling systems to the southeastern Europe market,” said Peter Poulin, CEO at GRC. “They are dedicated to protecting the environment, using green ‘environmentally friendly’ solutions for their data centers, and that aligns with one of our core values here at GRC. It is an honor to be here with the U.S. Ambassador, the Honorable Anthony F. Godfrey to recognize E-Smart Systems and the ZELENDATA CENTRE for their focus on the environment and goal to provide mission critical services to organizations here in Serbia.”
