Verne Global reckons it has broken the decades-old model of one-size-fits-all data centre design with powerDIRECT+, its reduced-cost environment engineered specifically for next generation power intensive computing.
With powerDIRECT+, the company says it’s expanded its compute environments to equip CIOs with “streamlined and cost-effective” data centre options.
Verne Global says it specialises in highly-optimised, secure, scalable and 100 per cent renewably powered data centre solutions. The firm claims its Icelandic campus is the only place in the world where a data centre can operate with totally sustainable green power. Located on a secure, former NATO base close to the town of Keflavik, the facility is said to support more than 60,000m2 of ISO 27001 certified, technical space.
According to Verne Global, powerDIRECT+ has been designed to meet the need for high-power enterprise applications, including grid computing, HPC and other power-intensive use cases, but at “substantially lower” costs than traditional mission critical environments. Uniquely developed using standard racks up to 60U, free-cooling and dedicated UPS-backed power feeds, the firm says customers benefit from higher resilience and power costs that are reduced by as much as 80 per cent.
Tate Cantrell, CTO, Verne Global says: “With applications that require varying compute, power and resiliency needs, forward thinking companies are fine tuning their application deployment strategies so that the data centre resources match the service levels demanded by the users of the business applications. We believe our approach targets the diverse requirements of organisations today and into the future.”
