11/2/2021 – Nautilus Data Technologies, the leading provider of ultra-scalable, high-density data center solutions has achieved OCP Ready™ certification making it the only OCP Ready™ Colo facility available in North America. The Stockton 1 Data Center’s water-cooled system is highly efficient and capable of supporting the most advanced open infrastructure deployments. With a 75% reduction in system losses versus the industry average, this new solution provides customers with an environmentally sustainable alternative that handles today’s demanding workloads as well as tomorrow’s increasingly more powerful requirements.
“We are proud to partner with an organization that is driving innovation through collaboration,” said Jim Connaughton, CEO at Nautilus. “The Open Compute Project provides a robust framework for validating the value and effectiveness of our technology. Open hardware designs that enable higher density workloads accelerates Nautilus’ mission to bring high performance compute, ultra-sustainably, to all areas of the globe.”
The OCP Ready™ colocation facility certification process is a thorough self-assessment independently reviewed by OCP according to meticulous standards. Evaluations assess the full range of facility design aspects, including access, white space, electrical, cooling, cabling, and service.
“The team at Nautilus has been quick to engage the Community and we’re excited to have their thought leadership within the Data Center Facilities project. Their recent OCP Ready™ certification provides enterprises with a highly efficient facility in North America that is optimized for OCP hardware and a team that truly understands the importance of collaboration to drive growth.” said Steve Helvie, VP of Channel for OCP.
The Stockton 1 Data Center is the first high-density data center to eliminate water use. The data center can cool 55kW+ per rack, uses no refrigerants or treatment chemicals, and offers a specialized data hall for innovation testing. The facility is rack agnostic and allows for immersion, direct-to-chip, rear-door cooling units, and other innovations.
“We are very excited to join the Open Compute Project community and become an approved OCP Ready™ colocation provider,” said Arnold Magcale, the founder and Chief Scientist, “Our collaboration with OCP not only greatly benefits new hyperscale deployments but also fosters global scaling of environmentally sustainable data centers through adoption of our simpler and more effective cooling technology.”
About the Open Compute Project Foundation
The Open Compute Project Foundation (OCP) was initiated in 2011 with a mission to apply the benefits of open source and open collaboration to hardware and rapidly increase the pace of innovation in, near and around the data center’s networking equipment, general purpose and GPU servers, storage devices and appliances, and scalable rack designs. OCP’s collaboration model is being applied beyond the data center, helping to advance the telecom industry & EDGE infrastructure. Learn more at www.opencompute.org.
