AI-Ready data centers

What AI-Readiness Means for AQ Compute

The digital infrastructure industry is rapidly evolving. In the past decade, we’ve witnessed numerous technological breakthroughs that have outpaced societal expectations. Now, we’re at the cusp of another exciting revolution: Artificial Intelligence. At the heart of this transformation is the data center industry. AI’s growth is contingent on AI-ready data centers, and this is where AQ Compute shines. Unencumbered by legacy data center architecture, AQ Compute is uniquely positioned to structure things differently, offering a distinct advantage over its competitors.

Our journey to AI readiness involves integrating ultra-high-density cooling coupled with heat capture through RDHX and direct liquid cooling. This innovative approach allows us to increase the temperature at which a center can run, thereby reducing cooling costs and water consumption. The result? Our ultra-high-density data centers operate more efficiently, minimizing your PUE and supporting your sustainability goals. This not only enables the deployment and growth of AI applications but also contributes to a greener future.

 

Our Two Pillars of AI-Ready Data Centers

Integration of a closed-loop cooling circuit

We designed our infrastructure to allow for high-density cooling, using a closed water loop to remove the heat from the racks via Rear Door Heat Exchangers (RDHX) and direct liquid cooling. This increases free cooling, reducing mechanical costs and minimal water consumption. As a result, we can operate more efficiently to minimize your PUE and operational costs. We also incorporate heat reuse and eliminate water consumption to help meet your sustainability goals.

Closed-loop efficiency

Utilizing a closed-loop cooling system to eliminate water usage and minimize our WUE (Water Usage Effectiveness) score means we rely on something other than vast quantities of water for cooling purposes.

Heat recovery

AQ Compute’s innovative design enables heat from the data center to be exchanged from the cooling loop to an independent hot water loop. This exchange ensures that the energy generated within the data center never goes to waste. The captured heat is transferred from the data center to a hot water heating system for use within our facilities and by different external heating demands, such as local communities. This commitment to heat reuse benefits our operations and contributes significantly to our sustainability goals and community-driven heating solutions.

Community-driven heating

At AQ Compute, we believe in the power of partnerships. We’re committed to collaborating with local utility companies and municipalities to pioneer community-driven heating solutions. These initiatives showcase our dedication to social responsibility and sustainable practices.

Regulation of the return temperature

In an era where high-performance AI applications dominate the landscape, efficiency is not just a preference; it’s a necessity.

Optimizing cooling with precision, delivering efficiency

We can regulate temperature, humidity and water flow inside the cooling system and on every rack within our data centers.

By precisely regulating the water flow in our cooling system, we avoid unnecessarily cooling racks with lower workloads, reducing overall power consumption and maintaining a consistent return water temperature.

Warm water cooling increases free cooling, reducing the need for mechanical cooling. This enables us to reduce power consumption, reduce the PUE and improve operational costs. This comprehensive approach ensures that every aspect of power and cooling delivery is fine-tuned for maximum operational efficiency, providing a reliable and cost-effective solution for your AI applications.

This is a journey.
