Northern Data AG has announced the opening of its first data center at its Frankfurt am Main location. The Frankfurt location will be a part of the Company’s Distributed Computing Cluster, based on its mobile high-tech data centers. This will add to the Company’s worldwide network of GPU clusters, including in the Netherlands, Scandinavia and Canada.
Supporting supercomputer research
Northern Data AG collaborated with University Frankfurt and GSI Helmholtzzentrum Darmstadt to example scientific applications including calculations and modeling in particle physics and relativistic astrophysics, environmental and atmospheric physics, applications in life sciences.
Stefan Sickenberger, COO of Northern Data said,
“High-Performance Computing has become an integral part of the research and large parts of the industry. Parallel processor systems and clusters are needed to process large volumes of data at high speed and with maximum stability. A key driver of success is lower energy consumption and high power efficiency. We are pleased to be working closely with our research partners on this project. We are particularly proud of our cooperation with the High-Performance Computing Architecture group at the Goethe University Frankfurt, which commands a great deal of expertise, especially in the area of Green IT”.
