1 EXECUTIVE REPORT How to Select a Colocation Provider Offering High Performance Computing

2 How to Select a Colocation HPC computing infrastructures can t use traditional computing environments. Due to the increased power consumption and increased cooling requirements, organizations may have to limit the number of HPC servers per rack in their in-house data center. Traditional data centers built as recently as five years ago were designed to have a uniform energy distribution of around 2 kw to 4 kw per rack. With the increasing use of high-density blade systems, this design envelope is no longer sufficient. A high-density data center is one where the amount of energy needed is more than 10 kw per rack or where the power to the raised floor and the computing equipment exceeds 150 watts per sq. ft. over the entire raised floor. This is the point where traditional all-air data centers begin to have significant limitations. Restricting the number of servers per rack increases the number of racks needed, which in turn, takes up more space. Plus, more cooling equipment is needed to prevent over-heating. An increase in racks and cooling equipment adds cost and maintenance requirements. A high-density data center is one where the amount of energy needed is more than 10 kw per rack or where the power to the raised floor and the computing equipment exceeds 150 watts per sq. ft. over the entire raised floor. This is the point where traditional all-air data centers begin to have significant limitations. Restricting the number of servers per rack increases the number of racks needed, which in turn, takes up more space. Plus, more cooling equipment is needed to prevent over-heating. An increase in racks and cooling equipment adds cost and maintenance requirements. Although HPC helps CIOs respond better to business demands, it also can create budget and space hurdles. Outsourcing to a colocation provider that has experience with establishing a high density compute footprint in their data center will overcomes these HPC challenges v21

3 A colocation provider s HPC solution should: Provide high density compute environments large enough to meet current and future demand. Enable companies to collect, process, store, analyze, and report data efficientl Be customizable to a company s specific requirements Deploy quickly and scale easily to accommodate business growth Require less capital and operating investments than building and operating a company-owned data center Run the company s applications quickly, efficiently, and reliably around-the-clock with high availability, backed by a service level agreement Include multiple levels of redundancy for cooling, power, and connectivity Operate efficient power and cooling systems which provide lower PUE s and keep operating costs down Transport data rapidlywithin data centers and between data centers or company locations using robust connectivity solutions. Demand for HPC is growing across many industries faster than most companies own in-house data centers can expand. As a result, the combination of high density colocation and HPC services fulfill a critical need that many firms can t handle on their own. CyrusOne and High Performance Computing CyrusOne offers high density computing environments across many of its over two dozen global data center locations. These environments are ideal for high performance computing applications. CyrusOne s dedicated, secure and powerful computing resources can scale as your footprint or business needs grow. As the leader in high-density data center deployments in the colocation industry, CyrusOne understands that no data center solution is one size fits all, especially when it comes to high performance compute and high density deployments v21

4 The company s overarching goal is to always say yes we can when hosting engineering and implementation meetings with customers. The company s deep experience with high-density data centers is also assisting customers in other industry sectors realize HPC s benefits. Customers can gain efficiencies by utilizing high density high performance compute solutions when the data center is appropriately engineered to handle higher density levels.
