“Cryptocurrency Data Centre Deployment: Lessons The Data Centre Industry Can Learn From This New Growth Industry.”

Date: , Track: , , Location:

Click here for the full DataCentres North Presentation

The Cryptocurrency mining industry has grown from relatively obscure roots in 2009 to a forecasted global market cap value of over $2 Trillion in 2018. With crypto-mining being one of the few industries that virtually rely completely on IT, the question to ask is: What can the crypto-currency industry teach us about data centres?

The presentation will explore:

  • The Data Centre needs for cryptocurrency miners
  • Miner’s data centre design requirements
  • Commercial Drivers for Cryptocurrency Miner’s design criteria
  • Lessons to learn from these requirements

Speaker

15:45 - 16:15

Vision On The Future – How The Challenge Of Creating Supercomputers May Impact Future Data Centre Design, Build And Technologies Employed.

Date: , Track: , , Location:

The EU has recently announced a budget of €1bn over the next 5 years to fund two @60MW ExaScale supercomputers. ExaScale is a supercomputer of 10^18 operations per second (a billion, billion), 100x as powerful as any in Europe today and it needs to be 10x as energy efficient. This energy efficiency is hard to come by due to laws of physics and it requires electronics to get closer together - for any data centre designer this causes a problem in cooling, powering and connecting the equipment - a problem that equates to 200kW in a 1 sqm rack. Peter Hopton, from the EuroEXA project shares the problem and the solutions that are being developed in the EuroEXA co-design project
