Digital Realty, the largest global provider of cloud- and carrier-neutral data centre, colocation and interconnection solutions, has expanded its service offering to customers with a new high-performance computing (HPC)-capable data centre in Paris, France.
With the increased adoption of advanced, data-driven technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and data analytics, companies are dealing with a significant influx of data that needs to be processed at high speeds; a phenomenon known as Data Gravity. In response to this challenge, Digital Realty’s state-of-the-art data centre in La Courneuve is equipped with a direct liquid cooling (DLC) system to support the HPC equipment increasingly being adopted by customers globally.
Digital Realty’s new HPC-capable data centre has been designed to be adaptable to customers’ evolving infrastructure needs while also optimising for energy efficiency. With DLC, customers are likely to experience reductions in data processing costs – compared to traditional air-cooling methods – due to the technology’s ability to efficiently dissipate heat and reduce energy consumption, as well as make progress towards the reduction of their Scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions.
Fabrice Coquio, SVP and Managing Director – France, Digital Realty, commented: “Working closely with our customers and supporting their evolving needs is a top priority for Digital Realty, which is why we are offering an HPC-compatible DLC solution in Paris.
“Digital Realty’s liquid cooling solution enables our customers to deploy their most compute-intensive applications in an environment that is optimised for energy efficiency. Our new HPC-capable data centre in Paris is another step towards achieving our vision of becoming the meeting place for companies, technologies and data to come together.”
With Digital Realty’s HPC-capable data centre in Paris, customers can now place their HPC workloads at the centre of the company’s expanding global data centre platform, PlatformDIGITAL, enabling customers to connect to who they need to, whenever, wherever.Click below to share this article
