Cargill launches plant-based dielectric fluid for immersion cooling of electronics

AgTech company Cargill has announced NatureCool 2000, a plant-based, biodegradable immersion cooling fluid for electronics, positioned for use in data centers, cryptocurrency mining and other advanced applications. Immersion cooling submerges servers in a bath of non-conductive liquid, allowing heat generated by the computer components to be transmitted into the fluid and cooled. The company claims NatureCool 2000 provides over 1000x cooling capacity of conventional air cooling, uses up to 60 per cent less energy, and offers a higher level of fire safety compared to synthetic cooling fluids.

Cargill says that in addition to data centers, the technology can be applied to electric vehicle charging stations and other complex electronics. The thermal energy stored in the fluid can also be upcycled as an effective and affordable heat source to warm facilities.

Cradlepoint Announces NetCloud Exchange

Cloud-delivered LTE and 5G wireless network solutions provider Cradlepoint has announced NetCloud Exchange, an architectural extension of its NetCloud solution, to help lean IT organizations transform their business and amplify their 5G experience with advanced SD-WAN and Zero Trust capabilities. NetCloud Exchange is a cloud-native solution built on policy-driven, zero-trust principles that deliver multiple SD-WAN and security services, delivered using the NetCloud Exchange Service Gateway — a scalable, resilient, software-based solution for private and cloud data centres that aggregates remote connections, provides flow-level visibility, and acts as the policy-enforcement point for the services it supports.

The following new NetCloud Services will be delivered based on the NetCloud Exchange extension:

  • Secure Connect: An agile LTE/5G VPN-like service that enables secure end-to-end connections for thousands of locations in just three simple steps, using Zero Trust principles that include IP address cloaking and no default network access to change the traditional VPN paradigm from “connect and then secure,” to “secure and then connect” to least privileged-based access.
  • Advanced SD-WAN: A future service that extends Cradlepoint’s current SD-WAN capabilities by adding end-to-end support and advanced application optimization.
  • Zero Trust Network Access: A future service that is simple to deploy and uses flexible, fine-grained user-, site-, application-, and resource-based policies that leverage identity, context and 5G attributes to control network access.

NetCloud Exchange Secure Connect and NetCloud Exchange Service Gateway are available now, while other solutions will be available in the fourth quarter of 2022.
