CyrusOne, a renowned global developer and operator of data centres known for its swift delivery of cost-efficient, advanced digital infrastructure solutions, has introduced its latest innovative offering: Intelliscale™. This cutting-edge solution is designed to cater to the rapidly growing demands of AI applications and services, presenting a state-of-the-art, artificial intelligence (AI) workload-specific data centre.
Given the escalating requirements for enhanced performance and density in AI workloads, a distinct solution is required. As a cornerstone of its design practise, CyrusOne developed Intelliscale as an enhancement to its build-to-suit solutions, partnering with several leading-edge technology companies. The Intelliscale data centre is built upon an ultra-high-density foundation, optimising space utilisation and presenting the ideal solution for companies aiming to effectively scale their AI infrastructure. Intelliscale data centres can occupy just 25% of the space of typical data centres, depending on the application and needs.
“The exponential increase in AI workloads will inevitably further impact the unprecedented demand that our industry is facing,” said John Hatem, Chief Operating Officer at CyrusOne. “In this environment, planning for long-term AI growth is imperative and ensuring cloud service providers have the infrastructure to support it is central to making this a reality. Deploying Intelliscale today will allow organisations to secure their AI future. With this global solution, our objective is to establish an AI environment for our high-density customers that is efficient and flexible, empowering customers to enter the market more swiftly and cost-effectively.”
CyrusOne has designed Intelliscale to operate with minimal land usage offering a variety of redundancy configurations tailored to individual needs. The company’s leading modular manufacturing approach to data centre development enables customers to utilise liquid-to-chip cooling technology, rear door heat exchanger cooling systems, and immersion cooling to achieve efficient cooling up to 300kW per rack, delivering unparallelled performance even under the most demanding AI workloads.
Intelliscale offers the ability to create a super high-density environment in a smaller building to maximise efficiencies across the board, and in some instances, existing facilities can be retrofitted to address dense AI deployments. In addition to space, there are additional converged infrastructure savings depending on their application. Intelliscale also offers sustainability benefits, including using less concrete and steel.
Eric Schwartz, Chief Executive Officer at CyrusOne, highlighted the company’s unwavering commitment to innovation: “We are constantly challenged to deliver next generation solutions for what our customers desire, and Intelliscale is just one example of how we are responding. We’re thrilled to be offering the data centre industry’s first-of-its-kind AI solution, a game changer for the industry.”
