Nautilus Data Technologies is the first company to successfully launch a waterborne floating data center prototype, pioneering a new standard for data center energy efficiency, environmental sustainability and global scalability. Nautilus Data Centers will dramatically reduce the cost of computing by providing the industry’s lowest power usage effectiveness (PUE), eliminating unused rack space, reducing the time required to build a migrate data center infrastructure, and designing systems with the flexibility needed to future-proof data center operations.
The Nautilus waterborne data center solution is a holistic approach to data center management. It features a complete suite of patent-pending infrastructure, cloud and data center infrastructure management and predictive controls to provide the most comprehensive and cost efficient data center operation in the market. This Nautilus Solution provides customers of all sizes the hosting and colocation services they need to quickly and efficiently establish or expand their data center operations at a lower cost than traditional land-based models.
Nautilus Data Technologies was founded in 2013 by Arnold Magcale, a recognized technology industry expert with decades of experience in data centers and cloud management. Mr. Magcale is also a U.S. Navy Special Forces veteran and a certified dive master, who combined his maritime expertise and military security knowledge with decades of technology experience to create the Nautilus waterborne data center design. The company is headquartered in Pleasanton, California.
The first commercial Nautilus data center is currently under construction at California’s Mare Island Shipyard, where Nautilus successfully validated its first proof-of-concept prototype data center in 2015. The proof-of-concept process included a certified third party pre-commissioning and was validated by the engineering firms Jacobs Engineering and Critical Engineering Group.
Named “Eli M,” the innovative data center is being constructed on an ocean-worthy barge that meets all Coast Guard certifications and exceeds international maritime standards.
Nautilus’ cloud solution automates the infrastructure in an open source environment agnostic to any data center, cloud or application. Additionally, Nautilus’ DCIM solution is predictive with integrated artificial intelligence that self heals and provides military-grade security.
The Nautilus facility provides a high-density computing data center environment that can operate up to 800 server racks, which may be deployed in less than six months anywhere around the world that has a body of water.
With a potential 50% annual energy savings, the Nautilus design can save companies up to $4 Million a year in energy costs. All of this is supported with our patent-pending technology specific to the Data Center Vessel, Modularity, Cooling System and Thermal Containment, Intelligent Power Management and DCIM with Predictive Analytics.
Traditional data centers use massive amounts of water to cool the facilities, wasting a precious natural resource at an alarming rate. One average size data center can consume enough water to supply 2,000 homes a year.
That conventional model is unsustainable.
Nautilus’ patent-pending cooling technology is a revolutionary advancement, offering an innovative system that consumes NO water. By placing data centers on certified barges, Nautilus leverages the natural water below to cool the data centers, and all the water is recirculated safely back into the original body of water. The result is a next generation facility that operates less expensively and more efficiently than land-based centers, while still achieving the highest environmental standards.
