Hydro66 Holdings Corp. is sponsoring the European Regional Summit for the Open Compute Project. This successful annual event brings together the OCP community from around the world to share innovation and best practice most relevant to the European market.
Hydro66 previously announced that its data centre facility in northern Sweden is an OCP Ready co-location (colo) facility, making it easy for project owners to deploy OCP IT hardware at scale. The company also recently announced its first OCP client, Nexedi, with which it seeks to develop a combined approach to offering cloud infrastructure services.
Bill Carter, chief technology officer of Open Compute Project Foundation, commented: "The team at Hydro66 has really embraced the OCP community. In July, their facility in Boden, Sweden, was the first in the Nordics to achieve OCP Ready recognition and they have already deployed open rack systems. We see Europe as a key region for OCP Ready facilities as more and more enterprises enlist best-in-class energy efficiency. Having members like Hydro66 active in our data centre facilities project and being part of the colo solution provider program is key to accelerating growth in Europe."
Hydro66 deliver a cost-effective, environmentally sustainable option for OCP project owners. The company's data centre offers the combined benefits of OCP compliance, cool Nordic climate, low-cost green power and an ultraefficient award-winning facility. Andy Long, strategy adviser to Hydro66, will expand on these themes during his presentation to the OCP audience in Amsterdam describing how and why Hydro66 is the ideal location for OCP installations.
Christiaan Keet, CTO, Hydro66, commented: "We have been tracking OCP compliance from our design and build phase and are now delighted to see all that planning come to great effect for our clients. Observing first-hand the way open rack gear deploys effortlessly in minutes into our data halls is part of the promise of being an accredited facility. The regional summit is a great way to share our learnings back with the community and enhance our position as one of the first OCP Ready co-location data centres globally."
The company is exhibiting at the OCP Amsterdam Regional Summit Sept. 26 to Sept. 27, 2019, and can be found at booth location B21. Hydro66 have developed a 10-point checklist to enable OCP users to evaluate its data centre choices against current best practice.
