14 May CyrusOne Enables Customers to Scale AI Through the Power of NVIDIA DGX-Ready Data Center Program
DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CyrusOne (NASDAQ: CONE), a premier global data center real estate investment trust (REIT), today announced that it has been named a certified North American colocation partner for the NVIDIA DGX-Ready Data Center program, which helps global businesses and organizations access modern data center facilities to build out their artificial intelligence (“AI”) initiatives and infrastructure and also simplify deployment.
The explosive growth of cloud computing has set the stage for this new era of AI. Practical AI systems are increasingly being adopted by the Fortune 1000. From back-office systems to innovative sales tools, this next generation of machine learning systems is upending our day-to-day workflows.
“As AI systems continue to grow in complexity, size and power, a new generation of power-efficient computing hardware and underlying data center cooling capabilities are required to handle this level of density and scale,” said John Gould, Chief Commercial Officer at CyrusOne.
“As more critical workloads centralize in this large scale, high density compute, CyrusOne finds itself sitting at the epicenter of this data gravity with our nearly 50 data centers strategically located throughout the world. As we move into this new decade, data centers will continue to be an essential infrastructure to enable AI, machine learning, and help companies unleash the full potential of this technology.”
Being a certified NVIDIA DGX-Ready Data Center program member allows CyrusOne to offer advanced data center facilities in major markets across the globe for businesses that want to leverage accelerated computing operations using NVIDIA DGX systems, but do not wish to build and deploy their own AI data centers.
Many enterprises today are partnering with colocation solutions providers to support growth initiatives and limit costs rather than expanding company-owned data centers. Colocation enables businesses to place IT infrastructure in specially designed and highly secure data centers without space, technology, or connectivity constraints. Companies are able to mitigate risks, scale faster, reduce capex and opex and concentrate instead on gaining insights from and innovating with their data.
CyrusOne is making it easier and faster for companies to adopt and explore use cases for AI by overcoming facility limitations to build an optimal AI ecosystem. NVIDIA DGX-2™ combines 16 fully interconnected NVIDIA GPUs for speed and scale, accelerating new AI model types that were previously untrainable. Likewise, CyrusOne delivers advanced, highly reliable design architecture to support flexible power requirements (2N, N, or both) and power densities of 250 watts per square foot or up to 900 watts per square foot.
Similarly, as storage density increases, maintaining cooling efficiency can be challenging. CyrusOne’s data center cooling design maintains parallel redundancy protocols to ensure your environment always receives the cooling it needs to run at optimum levels, maintain temperature stability and performance, and consume less energy. All of our newly built data centers are designed with zero water consumption cooling, which means no water towers, no evaporative cooling, and very low water use.
CyrusOne (NASDAQ: CONE) is a high-growth real estate investment trust (REIT) specializing in highly reliable enterprise-class, carrier-neutral data center properties. The Company provides mission-critical data center facilities that protect and ensure the continued operation of IT infrastructure for approximately 1,000 customers, including more than 200 Fortune 1000 companies.
With a track record of meeting and surpassing the aggressive speed-to-market demands of hyperscale cloud providers, as well as the expanding IT infrastructure requirements of the enterprise, CyrusOne provides the flexibility, reliability, security, and connectivity that foster business growth. CyrusOne offers a tailored, customer service-focused platform and is committed to full transparency in communication, management, and service delivery throughout its nearly 50 data centers worldwide.
