Northern Data Intends to Acquire a New HPC Data Center in Oklahoma

Northern Data, an international firm dedicated to bringing dramatic change to the high-performance computing (HPC) industry via unmatched innovation and ideas, is quickly expanding its operations.

The Germany-based firm just announced a new relationship with the State of Oklahoma in its newest initiative. Northern Data and Oklahoma will utilise their relationship in the future to fully realise the promise of high-performance computing and to create new possibilities across all sectors and businesses.

This partnership is part of Northern Data’s worldwide growth strategy, which includes the deployment of over 100,000 ASIC systems in North America by the end of 2022. Additionally, its goals were detailed in an earlier Strategy Presentation issued by the corporation in late September 2021

Additionally, the partnership resulted in Northern Data AG concluding discussions for the purchase of a data centre site in Oklahoma capable of producing up to 250 MW of electricity, the location of which was not disclosed. Northern Data intends to accomplish this goal in stages: 10 megawatts by Q2’22, followed by 50 megawatts in Q4’22, and finally 250 megawatts by the end of 2024, which is also the projected completion date for the construction of the site’s structures. The firm intends to develop via the use of quick and efficient modular construction designs.

The deal is currently undergoing due diligence, and further information regarding the acquisition will be made available after the process is complete.

A Critical Collaboration

Additionally, the cooperation will serve as the lifeblood of Northern Data’s vision and strategy of developing high-quality data centre infrastructure for Blockchain and, in the future, Cloud Compute Services.

Northern Data has already established a worldwide reputation for GPU and ASIC-based solutions via the use of ground-breaking approaches for creating and maintaining efficient, green HPC infrastructures. Northern Data apparently mined at least 20,000 green ETH and 470 BTC in the previous year using its current data centres.

It employs a dynamic workforce of over 180 individuals in seven different countries and specialises in specialised, large-scale data centres, cutting-edge hardware, and self-developed software for a variety of high-performance computing applications. Bitcoin mining, blockchain technology, artificial intelligence, big data analytics, the Internet of Things, and graphics rendering are among the sectors. Additionally, Northern Data operates 10 data centres worldwide and has ambitions to expand in Europe, Canada, and the United States of America.
