Hyperscale Cloud Data Centres
Meeting cloud data centre challenges at scale
Hyperscale cloud providers are competing to build fleets of regional and local data centre hubs. The hyperscale data centre market shows no signs of slowing down, with many forecasts pointing to tens of billions of dollars of investment over the next five years. It is estimated that by 2021 there will be more than 600 hyperscale data centres online. Built on design and engineering excellence, hyperscale providers operate some of the most technologically advanced facilities in the world, and continue to push the boundaries in operational efficiency.
Industry forecasts point to huge growth in the number of enterprise workloads migrating to cloud based solutions, the adoption of multi cloud environments will see huge volumes of data moving into and out of public clouds. Enterprises will need greater flexibility when moving workloads over greater distances, creating new demands for regional and local data centre footprints, as well as shaping hyperscale providers data centre strategies as they roll out more regional and local availability zones.
Kao Data Campus Model
Kao Data Campus provides the perfect environment for cloud providers seeking to grow their UK and European presence. Diverse fibre routes into the campus provide direct connectivity to the established Tier 1 cloud markets of Amsterdam and Dublin.
For requirements of up to 2.2MW the Kao Data Technology Suite offers an ideal solution, each suite offers an IT capacity of 2200kW supporting a total of 442 racks, and has an operating PUE of <1.2 even at partial load – meeting or exceeding the operational efficiency of many existing hyperscale facilities. The design and layout of the KDL1 facility offers customers with large scale deployments to operate with full autonomy on everything from physical access to power redundancy and delivery, dedicated networking and cooling infrastructure.
Larger deployments of up to 10MW can be deployed in a purpose built facility on the campus Planning permission has already been agreed for four data centres to be located on site, each building can be designed and built as a bespoke and stand alone facility to meet an individual customer’s requirements.
