Scan and Goonhilly collaborate to deliver new datacenter with green HPC platform for AI and ML compute
Satellite communications innovator and space gateway Goonhilly Earth Station today opened its new data centre and flexed its eco credentials by launching a managed green HPC platform for AI and ML compute on demand.
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.
The new managed platform delivered in collaboration with Scan, offers high performance GPU-based compute and storage for decentralised and centralised AI and machine learning applications to meet the data-intensive needs of the automotive, life sciences and space and aerospace marketplaces. By provisioning both compute and AI and machine learning resources on demand, customers can reduce the cost of deployment and accelerate time to market.
“Through our strong partnerships with industry and academia we pride ourselves on being at the forefront of innovation. Our new green data centre is no exception. It is satisfying to open our doors to the many businesses and organisations with data-intensive applications who can benefit from this facility and the community we are creating,” commented Ian Jones, CEO of Goonhilly.
