Connectivity, High-Density Capability, Low-Cost Power and Design Flexibility Converge at Infomart Dallas to Enable the Next Generation of Cloud Supercomputing
DALLAS, TEXAS – January 5, 2016 – Infomart Data Centers, a national wholesale data center provider, announces today that Nimbix, Inc., a leader in cloud-based, High-Performance Computing (HPC) infrastructure and applications, has selected Infomart Dallas 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 innovative HPC solutions.
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 also takes advantage of the building’s access to low-cost power, which enables it to realize a 50 percent power savings as compared to other Dallas data center providers. Additionally, Nimbix’s cloud-based supercomputing solution benefits from Infomart’s flexible design options, including the use of containment and Vertical Exhaust Ducts (VEDs) to scale density and enable greater efficiency, and consequently, improve usage cost economics.
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. 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 will realize additional savings in traditionally aggregated cross-connect fees.
“Nimbix focuses on reducing the costs and complexities surrounding big data analytics and computation for customers around the world with JARVICE 2.0,” says 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.”
The 1.6 million-square-foot Infomart Dallas facility is one of the nation’s largest carrier hotels and the hub of connectivity for the Southern U.S. Offering best-in-class availability and engineered to eliminate downtime, Infomart Dallas has accrued zero minutes of downtime since 2009. The data center is also compliant with several industry regulations, including SSAE 16, HIPAA and PCI DSS.
“It’s hard to fathom that nearly 90 percent of the world’s data today was created in the last two years,” says John Sheputis, President of Infomart Data Centers. “As businesses turn to next-gen cloud providers like Nimbix to derive more insight from this data explosion, Infomart’s low-cost power, premier connectivity and award-winning infrastructure will continue to address these high-tech companies’ high-density power requirements and global delivery demands.”
