DATA CENTRES

AQ Compute data centres are based on a holistic ecological concept and equipped with efficient and flexible technologies. All our data centres are integrated into a green life cycle and subject to international certification processes. We want our clients to be advocates of green computing. Supplied with 100% renewable energy, our data centres will live up to the needs of hyperscalers, large enterprises and other organisations that require extensive computing capacity.

Our first two data centres are located in Norway and Spainwith more to follow.

Our data centre design

The design of the AQ Compute data centres is defined around three key aspects: sustainability, modularity, flexibility, and redundancy.

Sustainability

In our data centres, we offer sustainability throughout the entire value chain, from the energy supply to the recovery of excess heat. Our data centre buildings are made of materials with the smallest possible carbon footprints. Our cooling and energy technologies are powered by the most efficient and environmentally friendly fuels.

 

Modularity

Modularity in a data centre allows for progressive growth in capacity. Our power supply and cooling systems are fully modular, while the data hall is an open space that can be subdivided and expanded in various ways even while the data centre remains operational.

Our data centres can be built as campuses made of separate buildings, where each tenant can acquire a specific design and operate it themselves if desired.

Flexibility

We offer the flexibility for our clients to choose between whitespace areas, different data centre sizes and IT room capacities. In addition, AQ Compute is able to provide for different computing needs and is ready for various tier levels.  We also provide flexibility in power capacity and power backup technologies as well as in the type of cooling solution used. All standards can be set according to a client’s requirements.

 

Redundancy

Our data centres will typically reach the standards defined at Tier III level. We are able to offer different levels of redundancy to each client. We offer dedicated campus buildings or a built-to-suit concept.

To reduce the carbon footprint and energy dependency of our data centres, we are investigating alternatives to diesel generators, such as generators powered by synthetic biofuels or hydrogen. Depending on the location, large-scale battery storage systems could also be used.
