Why Submer makes sense

Submer is an idea born in 2015 from two brilliant and original minds, Daniel Pope and Pol Valls, to make operating and constructing datacenters more sustainable and efficient. That idea still remains to this day, as the main driver of the Company:

“We wanted to challenge the way we understand datacenters today and how this can create deep change in the way machines and humans behave. We create smart solutions to solve complex datacenter and HPC issues. We take what seems difficult and we make it easier, cheaper, more efficient, and cooler.”

Submer helps create datacenters that make sense through products, platforms, APIs, processes and installations that will move hyperscalers, colocation and huge industries to new levels of efficiency and innovation.
