GRC (Green Revolution Cooling), the provider of immersion cooling for data centers, has announced it is increasing operations in the Asian market with the opening of offices in New Delhi, India on January 1, 2020, the company said.
The office will be led by GRC´s Dhruv Varma, who is relocating from the US to New Delhi, India where he will lead operations and serve as Director of Business Development, APAC. Varma previously served as GRC´s Director of Product Marketing and brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience in the field of data center cooling.
Prior to joining GRC in 2014, he served on Yahoo´s Data Center Energy and Sustainability team, where he helped identify over USD 6 million in operational cost savings and an annual reduction of 2,500 metric tons of CO2e. Varma has a Bachelor´s degree in Mechanical and Automation Engineering from GGSIPU in New Delhi and a Masters in Business Development (MBA) from Babson College in Massachusetts.
With GRC´s immersion-cooling systems deployed in Japan, Singapore, Australia, India, and Vietnam, Varma will build staff to grow and serve the entire APAC data center market, which accounts for nearly 60% of the world´s population.
GRC is locating its first Asian office in India because of the rapid growth in demand for digital infrastructure in the country: driven by the proliferation of affordable smartphones and connectivity, a growing percentage of India´s 1.3 billion population is coming online. The government is also pushing for digitization under the Digital India Programme and proposing data localization laws fueling a rapid growth in data center infrastructure. Additionally, the push for environmental sustainability across Asia is a key factor in the need for immersion cooling in the region.
GRC is the immersion cooling authority. The company´s patented immersion-cooling technology radically simplifies deployment of data center cooling infrastructure. By eliminating the need for chillers, CRACs, air handlers, humidity controls and other conventional cooling components, enterprises reduce their data center design, build, energy, and maintenance costs.
