Asperitas and Boston announce Immersed Computing partnership

Dutch cleantech company Asperitas has announced a partnership with Boston focusing on ‘Immersed Computing’ during the international CloudFest event (formerly World Hosting Days) in Germany.

Asperitas and Boston will be working on the integration of the Asperitas Immersed Computing solutions in the existing portfolio of hardware solutions of Boston, for customers with HPC requirements.

Immersed Computing is a technology developed by Asperitas. The concept is based on total liquid cooling or immersion cooling as it is also known. Asperitas’ first solution, a plug and play datacentre in a box solution, launched one year ago at the Cloud Expo Europe event in London. Since the launch, Asperitas has deployed several installations including a high density 300 kW dedicated Immersed Computing facility in Eindhoven in The Netherlands. Their focus is on bringing sustainable, efficient and flexible datacentres anywhere, including high density datacentres for emerging technologies.

Manoj Nayee, Managing Director of Boston commented: ‘With the ever-growing debate around environmental responsibility, alongside the constant strive to increase efficiency and lower operational costs, the IT industry is having to re-evaluate its practices and approaches to problems. Since our inception 25 years ago, Boston has been at the forefront of technology working closely with strategic partners to deliver cutting edge technologies with real world benefits. Our partnership with Asperitas ushers in an exciting new chapter for our business and for our customers delivering radically improved datacentre cooling solutions coupled with intelligent energy recovery and reduced operational costs.’

Global system integrator Boston recently celebrated their 25 years in business. Since its founding in London, UK, Boston has expanded operations globally. Following on from the successful launch of Boston IT Solutions India in 2009, Boston launched Boston Server & Storage Solutions GmbH in Germany a year later, with offices also opening on the West and East coast, USA in 2012.

Founder and CEO of Asperitas, Rolf Brink: ‘Since our R&D phase we have been working with partners and we strongly believe strategic partnerships are key to bring Immersed Computing to the next level. We are excited to team up with Boston; they get our technology and customers.’

This chapter will consider the different classes of instruments and computerised instrument systems to be found in laboratories and the role they play in computerised experiments and sample processing – and the steady progress towards all-electronic laboratories.


This chapter considers how the smart laboratory contributes to the requirements of a knowledge eco-system, and the practical consequences of joined-up science. Knowledge management describes the processes that bring people and information together to address the acquisition, processing, storage, use, and re-use of knowledge to develop understanding and to create value


This chapter takes the theme of knowledge management beyond document handling into the analysis and mining of data. Technology by itself is not enough – laboratory staff need to understand the output from the data analysis tools – and so data analytics must be considered holistically, starting with the design of the experiment
