OVHcloud has unveiled a third data centre in Sydney, part of the company’s network of six data centres across Asia Pacific.

The new site will utilise a proprietary integrated water cooling system that is designed to facilitate cooling at the server level, eliminating the need for air conditioning in server rooms. According to OVHcloud, the system only requires a single glass of water to cool a server as the water is cooled and circulated in a closed loop.

The technology has helped the company achieve a PUE of 1.29 and a WUE (Water Usage Effectiveness) of 0.30l/kWh.

“The increased popularity of emerging technologies such as 5G, edge computing and generative AI has trigged an influx of demand for high computing performance, but many organisations are struggling to balance this need whilst keeping carbon footprints top of mind,” said Michel Paulin, Chief Executive Officer, OVHcloud.

“As a pioneer in water cooling technology for more than 20 years, we are confident in our ability to assist organisations in powering their businesses, and their ESG goals as well.

Terry Maiolo, Vice President and General Manager, APAC, OVHcloud, added, “We are excited to bring our latest data centre technology to Sydney, which deploys water cooling at scale and enables a sustainable cloud by design.

“With Australia as one of the most densely served economies by data centres per capita, this marks a pivotal development for Australian businesses as more organisations consider the sustainability of data centres on their radar.

The launch of this site follows recent openings by PVHCloud in India and Singapore over the past 14 months.
