Goonhilly Earth Station Datacentre

Cornwall, UK

Deep Learning & AI DataCenter POD

On the 15th July 2019 satellite communications innovator and space gateway Goonhilly Earth Station opened its new data centre and flexed its eco credentials by launching a managed green HPC platform for AI and ML compute on demand - all designed and installed in conjunction with Scan as their strategic infrastructure partner. One of the first organisations in the UK to deploy a liquid immersion cooling system from Submer to mitigate the power demands of high performance computing (HPC), Goonhilly’s green platform is designed to meet the data-intensive needs of the automotive, life sciences and space/aerospace marketplaces. Plus its onsite array of solar panels can support the data centre’s full power requirements of 500KW and local wind power will be added to the mix shortly. Goonhilly’s goal is to create a UK hub for AI and ML services that acts as a marketplace and allows academia and enterprise to collaborate and share ideas.
