AQ Compute I Aquila Capital I Colocation data centre I Norway I HPC I Colocation AQ COMPUTE AQ Compute has recently been founded with the mission to build the most energy and cost-efficient data centres for colocation in Europe.

Our first facility, NO-DC1, is currently under construction close to Oslo and will be operational by Autumn 2021. NO-DC1 will be a 10 MW HPC (High Performance Computing) colocation facility. Further customised capacities are planned in Norway as well as in other European countries. We are dedicated to sustainability and strive to reduce CO2 emissions in all our operations. As one of the sustainability measures, we exclusively use renewable energy to run our data centres. Furthermore, we have selected the most innovative and state-of-the-art cooling and data centre infrastructure technologies to enable a PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) of 1.05. A combination of these measures allows us to achieve significant CO2 savings and at the same time offer clients competitive operational costs.

Our services can be tailored to each of our client’s individual needs. Depending on the project size and requirements, AQ Compute offers a wide range of capacities and installed technologies including data halls in various sizes, ranging from smaller to large white space areas and entire facilities. All of our facilities fulfil the highest security standards and our technology is compliant with GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).
AQ Compute I Aquila Capital I Colocation data centre I Norway I HPC I Colocation WHY NORWAY Sustainability lies at the heart of all our activities and is one of the key drivers during the site selection for our data centres. Norway plays a leading role in reducing emissions and acting environmentally friendly, which is in line with Aquila's overall approach to sustainability. In Norway, 96 % of electricity supply is generated by hydropower. Since most of the Norwegian hydropower plants are located at natural reservoirs, the source of energy is renewable, flexible and reliable.

The choice of location offers a great financial benefit for our customers. As the largest owner of small hydro power plants in Norway we can provide our clients with low electricity costs and long-term energy contracts securing price stability for 10 years or more. Electricity prices in neighbouring Nordic countries were 12 % higher over the last 15 years compared to Norway. In addition, the Norwegian government reduced energy taxes for data centre operators. The AQ Compute colocation data centre site is connected to a highly reliable electricity grid with an indicated stability of > 99 % in the last decade, enabling clients best uptime. With its AAA rating by Moody’s, Norway belongs to the top-notch group of lowest country risk worldwide, implying high political stability. Given Norway is a member of the European Economic Area, Norwegian data must be processed in compliance with the EU’s GDPR.
AQ Compute I Aquila Capital I Colocation data centre I Norway I Hybird cooling EFFICIENT COOLING TECHNOLOGY Currently, there is a big movement in the HPC segment towards alternative and sustainable cooling technologies. More and more manufacturers offer standard water cooled HPC hardware. To provide clients with more options, we have put a lot of effort into offering innovative cooling setups and technologies. Clients can choose between high efficiency, air, and water cooling HPC infrastructures in our data centres, with PUEs as low as 1.05 and a computing density of up to 80 kW per rack. In addition, we consider various solutions for the reuse of the data centre waste heat.

Slide OUR USPs ATTRACTIVE PRICING AQ Compute provides their clients with low electricity costs and long-term energy contracts securing price stability - by using renewable energies . AQ Compute can offer clients competitive and reliable prices compared to other European data centre operators and a planning reliability of more than 10 years. All of this comes with complete flexibility in terms of the cooling technology and the design of the data centre. HYBRID COOLING AQ Compute offers efficient air cooling and innovative direct hot water cooling technologies. Depending on the individual client needs, we can adapt our solutions accordingly. By using our leading technology and operational excellence, we achieve world class PUEs, resulting in significant savings with full flexibility. GREEN COMPUTING AQ Compute colocation clients benefit from lowest operational costs in the market in the knowledge that they are operating with 100 % renewable and CO2 free generated electricity. Due to the use of renewable energy, the attractive pricing and application of efficient cooling technologies, we achieve low PUEs. This helps to significantly reduce the CO2 footprint of the AQ Compute colocation data centre.

ENERGY & COST SAVINGS

AQ Computes cooling technology enables our climate cautious clients to significantly reduce their demand of electricity and lower their CO2 emissions.

In the following, we demonstrate the potential AQ Compute cost savings by comparing total electricity expenses and use of different cooling technologies in Norway.

These potential savings can be attributed to two specific factors:
1) significantly lower electricity costs at the site of our newest data centre in Norway,
2) highly attractive operational costs resulting from the use of energy efficient cooling technologies.

Please sign up here in order to get the complete overview of the potential AQ Compute cost savings.
