WORLD LEADING HIGH PERFORMANCE COMPUTING Wherever significant processing power is required – e.g. for 3D renderings for filmmaking, simulations for new car models, or research analytics – high-performance computing (HPC) applications come into play. These, in turn, require specialized data center designs that concentrate vast computational capabilities into a confined environment. Densely packed IT components generate considerable heat, and need power supply and cooling systems that work reliably and effectively despite space constraints. Lefdal

Mine Datacenter (LMD) offer one of the leading data center solutions in the world for HPC. It was formerly a mine, and comprises 120,000 square meters of tunnels and chambers on the west coast of Norway. LMD benefits from natural protection through the rock formation, and highly controlled, secure

OPTIMAL LOCATION FOR HPC  Lowest total cost of operation (TCO) in Europe  Green power at leading low cost  Water cooling – up to 50 KW/rack  Guaranteed PUE of 1.15  High secure facility – Mountain hall  Customized Tier level (I to III)  One of the greenest data centers in Europe  Optimized HPC infrastructure  Experienced technical team – 10 MW in operation  Norway ranked nr 2 in the world – low risk

physical access. The data center is powered exclusively by renewables and can run densities up to 50 KW/rack with its efficient and cost-effective cooling system based on cold sea water available from a nearby fjord.


HPC OWN INFRASTRUCTURE One can chose to build out own infrastructure, IaaS, fully managed HPC services or hybrid models. Own infrastructure can be provided in Tier III, Tier I and Core environments. HPC CORE

HPC AS A SERVICE LMD with iNNOVO offer turnkey solutions from unmanaged Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) up to full-managed Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions.

The delivery model gives enterprises the ability to run computationally intense workloads by renting them instead of a blanket purchase. Can be de-

ployed as stand-alone compute or in hybrid with existing inhouse infrastructure. Low cost solution with no upfront payments. Free trial before deployment.

INDUSTRIAL HIGH PERFORMANCE COMPUTING (HPC)

HIGH PERFORMANCE DATA ANALYSIS (HPDA)

HIGH PERFORMANCE BIG DATA

Custom built architecture to solve cutting-edge problems. HPC architectures scale due to the parallelization of the used CPUs that get extended easily by adding additional nodes and integrating them to the system.

In-memory data base architectures (such as HANA) for analyzing & processing large data sets for real-time or near real-time requirements.

Storage intense blob configuration, for storing large amounts of data up to Petabytes sizing’s in one IT Container.

USE CASES • Product simulations and optimization • 3D rendering • Deep learning • Low latency & real time content distribution • Smart analytics / Industrial analytics • Risk modeling, currency mining • Blockchain & smart contracts, hasing-as-a-service HPCAAS USP • Innovation driver • Maximize productivity and flexibility • Generate new business fields from the existing data • Highly scalable - Cloud model • Cost effective • Managed services offered by iNNOVO Cloud • Highly automated systems


In a world of rapidly increasing carbon emissions from the ICT industry, Norway offers a sustainable solution. Norway has a 97% share of renewables in its power production. One foresees a significant surplus in the production and extremely competitive price forecasts for the years to come. Long term power prices in Norway are expected to be the lowest in the Nordics.

WHY NORWAY?
