Hot springs, lava fields, geysers and rustic nature – most people are familiar with the gems of Iceland. But did you know that this Nordic nation is also an easily accessed tech hub with temperate climate and an abundance of renewable energy?
Compute-intensive organizations are currently facing many challenges. The three considerations you will read in this blog post drive toward a single conclusion: The old ways of running your IT and HPC may not remain the smartest and most cost-effective going forward. It may be time for a from-the-ground-up reevaluation of your organization’s compute as well.
Large cloud providers have increased their focus on HPC and added more specialized HPC services to their offerings. But is this really a cost effective long-term strategy for running AI workloads or simulations that can benefit from capacity at scale?
In the world of compute, everything is about getting as much capacity as possible for your calculations. Due to the capacity required to deliver true High-Performance Computing (HPC), both securing power and finding it at highly competitive pricing becomes particularly relevant.
Dublin, Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam and Paris (DFLAP) are Europe’s centerpiece data center locations today. Yet when you consider facts, there is really no good reason for DFLAP data centers to be running power demanding, heavy compute workloads. Some Nordic colocation solutions represent up to 50% more cost-efficient operations than running one’s cluster in mainland Europe.
Modern data centers, tend to run hot and consume a lot of power. Operating a data center can be both very expensive and unsustainable. However, a few locations on the planet seem almost tailor-made for low carbon-footprint HPC, AI and other high-throughput data center operations.
Hybrid cloud is today a crucial element of corporate best practices — so much so that those who have scale and are not using a hybrid cloud strategy are falling behind. This, however, is only the first step in an organization’s hybrid transformation.
Advania Data Centers (ADC) and NUMECA International, a market leader in computational fluid dynamics CFD, multiphysics and optimization, have announced a strategic HPC service partnership.
The excess heat from new data center will be used for local house-heating in Stockholm. Located in the largest Information and Communications Technology (ICT) cluster in Europe, Advania’s new data center is a first-rate option for high tech companies in the region. A new data center investment of $70 million to meet increased demand for […]
Reykjavik, Iceland – Advania Data Centers (ADC) today announced the industry’s first HPC cloud service based on Intel Xeon Platinum 9200 processors. This combination provides unprecedented performance and application compatibility, enabling customers to gain faster time to insights with HPC workloads in finance, weather, satellite, manufacturing, and artificial intelligence (AI) applications. ADC’s HPC cloud service […]
In the tech world, thermal design has always been a cornerstone for innovation. Today, that innovation has resulted in size conscious products that deliver more, faster, to maintain their competitive edge. This has resulted in more power being packed in today‘s smaller gadgets, which means that they generate more heat than their predecessors did. The […]
