Bulk achieves OCP Ready in Scandinavia first
Bulk Infrastructure has achieved OCP Ready certification for all three of its Scandinavian data centres, offering greater scalability and flexibility to customers.
The certification, administered by the Open Compute Project Foundation (OCP), demonstrates the same efficient design standards embraced by the likes of Facebook and Google to support open infrastructure deployments.
Bulk is the first to certify data centres OCP Ready in both Norway and Denmark. Its certification covers its Oslo Internet Exchange (OS-IX), Norway Data Center Campus (N01) and Denmark Data Center Campus (DK01).
“Enterprises, cloud and hyperscale tenants are looking more toward open hardware designs to support higher density workloads to meet demanding cloud migration, AI, research and other high performance needs,” said Rob Elder, vice president of data centres for Bulk. “This designation reinforces our commitment to state of the art facilities powered by 100% renewable energy.”
“Bulk understands the role of OCP solutions in pushing the performance envelope through open hardware designs and configurations,” said Steve Helvie, vice president of channel development for the OCP Foundation. “Bulk are now part of the OCP Community and we fully support their mission in the race to bring sustainable infrastructure to a global audience.”
The Open Compute Project Foundation was initiated in 2011.
