“Enterprises, cloud and hyperscale tenants are looking more toward open hardware designs to support higher density workloads to meet demanding cloud migration, AI, research and other high-performance needs,” said Rob Elder, Vice President, Data Centers for Bulk.

All three of Bulk Infrastructure’s colocation data centers have received OCP Ready accreditation. It means that Bulk has become Norway’s and Denmark’s First OCP Ready Data Center. The Open Compute Project Foundation displays extremely efficient design principles accepted by tech titans to handle the most sophisticated infrastructure installations.

Bulk Infrastructure is the first company in Norway and Denmark to certify its colocation data centers as OCP Ready.

The OCP Ready colocation facility certification process begins with a comprehensive self-assessment, which is then carefully assessed by OCP based on pre-determined criteria. Access, white space, electrical, cooling, cabling, and service are all evaluated as part of the assessment process. All three Bulk colocation data center facilities, including the Oslo Internet Exchange (OS-IX), Norway Data Center Campus (N01), and Denmark Data Center Campus (DK01), were successfully accredited.

“Enterprises, cloud and hyperscale tenants are looking more toward open hardware designs to support higher density workloads to meet demanding cloud migration, AI, research and other high-performance needs,” said Rob Elder, Vice President, Data Centers for Bulk. “This designation reinforces our commitment to state-of-the-art data centers powered by 100% renewable energy.”

The OCP Community

Norway-based OS-IX and NO1 are run entirely on renewable energy. DK01 is a Danish data center that is ultra-scalable, versatile, and efficient. Each colocation facility has its own set of capabilities, and all three adhere to OCP’s data center efficiency design standards.

“Bulk understands the role of OCP solutions in pushing the performance envelope through open hardware designs and configurations,” said Steve Helvie, Vice President of Channel Development for the OCP Foundation. “We are thrilled to have Bulk as part of the OCP Community and fully support their mission in the race to bring sustainable infrastructure to a global audience.”
