Data, data, data! It’s one of the most valuable assets that companies have these days. That’s why it’s so critical to partner with a data center provider that truly understands your power, storage, cooling and security needs and has the ability to craft a custom solution to help you meet your business goals.
DataSite prides itself on delivering customized solutions for its customers. In fact, earlier today the wholesale data center space and network service provider announced that it has deployed a high-performance computing (HPC) solution for a major hospitality corporation in its Orlando data center. The mission critical environment will accommodate air cooled power densities of 20kW+ per rack.
What’s the Market for HPC?
Market research firm, IDC, projects the HPC market will grow from $23.1B in 2016 to $31.4B in 2019, fueled by the desire to reap the of benefits of power hungry servers, storage, middleware, and applications.
Although market projections for HPC predict substantial growth in the coming years, it isn’t something that is available at every data center. DataSite has responded to soaring demand for HPC with a multitude of solutions to accommodate high density workloads across its three data centers. Chimney cabinets, which direct hot air up and into the active containment plenum; extra rack depth to accommodate hot air containment; and the use of blanking panels and materials are all part of this sophisticated, integrated solution.
What Industries Utilize HPC?
DataSite’s HPC customers range across many industries. Businesses that have a large amount of data to store are typically good candidates for HPC solutions. The HPC trend is largely driven by more robust connectivity solutions enabling low latency delivery of richer media from data centers that consequently require more intensive computing operations to process the rising influx of data.
