Vultr expands with new NVIDIA cloud GPU capacity using clean hydropower in Sabey Data Centers

Vultr, the world’s largest privately-held cloud computing platform, announced the expansion of its Seattle cloud data center region at Sabey Data Centers’ SDC Columbia location. Vultr’s expansion includes a significant new inventory of NVIDIA HGX H100 GPU clusters, available both on demand and through reserved instance contracts. Vultr’s new clean, renewable, hydro-powered expansion highlights the company’s commitment to enabling organizations to meet their AI innovation and corporate ESG (environmental, social, and governance) goals by delivering NVIDIA HGX H100 capacity in one of the most efficient, clean-powered data centers in the United States. 

Sabey, one of the largest privately-owned multi-tenant data center operators in the U.S., builds and maintains energy-efficient data centers with the goal of reaching net-zero carbon emissions by 2029. Having recently completed the third of up to nine possible buildings across 130+ acres, Sabey’s SDC Columbia location utilizes cost-efficient, sustainable hydropower.

With a 100 ENERGY STAR rating for three consecutive years and a market-leading annualized power usage effectiveness (PUE) of 1.15, Sabey’s SDC Columbia is the most efficient data center in the region, enabling Vultr to efficiently scale cloud computing and cloud GPU capacity with renewable power. This latest expansion offers Vultr customers the opportunity to harness the power of HGX H100 clusters for their AI workloads, and also choose the cleanest, most energy-efficient cloud GPU option, enabling them to meet their ESG goals and benefit from unrivaled price-to-performance.

“The transformative impact of AI has created a rapidly growing need from enterprises and AI innovators for high-performance, scalable, sustainable cloud GPU infrastructure. We chose Sabey for our latest expansion of NVIDIA GPU capacity because of our shared goal of reducing the carbon footprint of AI training and inference,” said J.J. Kardwell, CEO of Vultr’s parent company, Constant. “This clean, renewable, hydro-powered data center enables Vultr to deliver Cloud GPUs optimized to meet the needs of customers with the highest standards for compliance, sustainability, and price-to-performance.”

“We are thrilled to welcome Vultr to our customer roster as the first cloud computing platform to offer cloud GPUs in our SDC Columbia data center,” said Robert Rockwood, President of Sabey Data Centers. “Given the crucial role data centers and AI play in our lives and in shaping humanity’s future, it’s important that we power them as sustainably as possible. By joining forces with Vultr, together we bring much-needed resources to innovation teams in a way that benefits business, society and the planet.”
