The Goonhilly site has a rich history as a centre of communication. Ancient standing stones placed eons ago still mark important locations. And not only is this site home to the space tracking and communications centre used during the Apollo Moon Missions, it's still a major satellite receiving station and the landing spot for trans-Atlantic internet cables serving the UK and Europe.
On July 18th, Goonhilly Earth Station launches a commercial data centre focused on HPC applications to help customers perform research and process data as close to the source as possible. And their renewable energy platform allows companies to achieve their technology objectives while boosting their green-energy and carbon-neutral credentials. These qualifications make Goonhilly the ultimate Edge location - sitting at the only point where earth, space, and internet meet.
As an innovator in hyper-efficient immersion cooling technology, Submer is partnering with Goonhilly and 2CRSI - an international provider of HPC server hardware - to provide solutions with higher performance at less than half the energy consumption of traditional data centres. A SmartPod immersion cooling system installed on-site will be running processor-intensive simulations using 2CRSI servers equipped with the latest Nvidia and AMD chipsets to showcase the future of hyper-efficient data centres during a series of special events over the next several months.
