Nimbix, a Dallas, Texas-based High-Performance Computing (HPC) cloud hosting infrastructure and applications provider, has selected Infomart Data Centers’ Dallas colocation facility to support the infrastructure needs of its upgraded HPC cloud platform, JARVICE 2.0.
Infomart Dallas provides Nimbix with a high-density data center complete with “industry-leading” connectivity options, access to the core Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) network hub, and the “low-cost” power it needs to deliver its HPC solutions.
“Nimbix focuses on reducing the costs and complexities surrounding big data analytics and computation for customers around the world with JARVICE 2.0,” said Rob Sherrard, Co-Founder and VP of Service Delivery at Nimbix. “Infomart Dallas is a catalyst for JARVICE 2.0, delivering the global connectivity, low-cost power, design flexibility, security and dynamic infrastructure critical to powering both the Nimbix cloud and high-performance processing platform.”
With plans to supply 100 MW of electricity to the building, Infomart Dallas provides Nimbix the capacity it needs to scale both density and footprint, necessary for maintaining the high-speed networking fabric required to deliver its HPC cloud applications. With power density requirements equating to three to four times the industry average for cloud computing, Nimbix would also take advantage of the building’s access to low-cost power.
Additionally, Nimbix’s cloud-based supercomputing solution would benefit from Infomart’s flexible design options, including the use of aisle containment and Vertical Exhaust Ducts (VEDs) to scale density and enable greater efficiency, and consequently, improve usage cost economics.
JARVICE 2.0 end-users require access to the platform from across the globe; Nimbix relies on Infomart’s carrier-neutral Building Meet-Me Room (BMMR) for diverse connectivity to domestic and international carriers that enable this accessibility. With free client cross-connects in the BMMR, Nimbix would realize additional savings in traditionally aggregated cross-connect fees.
Infomart Dallas is among the most connected carrier-neutral data centers in the world, with over 75 carriers currently contracted in the building, including international and domestic network, content, cloud and Internet service providers.
