ViaWest supports Intel's TOP500 supercomputer project

3 Dec 2013 Greenwood Village - ViaWest, a colocation services provider in North America, has signed a partnership with Intel to house their most efficient and densely packed supercomputer in ViaWest's Hillsboro Data Center located in northwest Oregon. The supercomputer recently received the number 400 ranking on the TOP500 Supercomputer List for the most powerful computer systems in use today.

"As Oregon's leading colocation provider, ViaWest is proud to support Intel's innovation efforts", stated Jim Linkous, Regional Vice President Sales and General Manager for ViaWest. "Our technical team was very excited to support this supercomputer configuration by delivering 140 kW (kilowatts) of power and cooling capacity - a powerhouse configuration in which no other provider had the power or cooling systems to deliver", he added. The supercomputer consumed 74kW of power spread over two standard cabinets.

With 80,000 square feet of energy-efficient capacity, the ViaWest Hillsboro Data Center is marked by 8.5 megawatts of backup power generation and 13 on-net carriers all encompassed in a fully secure compound. The facility supports companies that have high-compliance and security requirements across a variety of industries including technology, Software-as-a-Service, health care and financial services, among others. The Intel supercomputer project further exemplifies ViaWest's forward-thinking and innovative approach in creating customized solutions for companies of all sizes.

"Our team needed a data centre partner that could not only handle the stringent high-density power requirements, but also one that is extremely flexible and willing to work closely with us", stated Jon Markee, Senior Technical Marketing Engineer for Intel's Data Center Group. "ViaWest has been a tremendous partner in that regard and we look forward to working on future projects with their team."

ViaWest's 27 enterprise-class data centres located across the western United States support both production workloads and disaster recovery solutions. The company provides unmatched technical and customer support for its colocation, Cloud computing and managed services suite.
