Cooling tanks under construction for the Bubba Supercomputer
While immersive cooling has been around since at least the Cray-2 supercomputer, we don’t know of any large-scale HPC deployments beyond a few test machines such as the Tsubame-KFC in Japan and the CRC cluster at TACC. Until now.

McCloud HPC service being built by Australia’s DownUnder GeoSolutions (DUG) outside Houston is set to become the largest oil and gas cloud in the world this year, providing 250 single-precision petaflops for DUG’s geoscience services business and its expanding HPC-as-a-service
Houston data center construction ramped up in 2018, with a major prelease by an Australian oil and gas company driving the additions to the market, according to a CBRE report.
