Cloud and data centre solutions provider InoCloud has joined the Innovations for Digital Infrastructure (I4DI).
I4DI is a partnership of global technology leaders that are developing European-based supercomputing solutions.
InoCloud joins a growing roster of I4DI members, including founding companies PosAm, Towercom, IPM Group and Tachyum, and partners Seagate, VNET and World Wide Technology Inc. (WWT).
I4DI constitutes a partnership with Slovak Academy of Sciences (SAV), Ministry of Investment, Regional Development and Informatization (MIRRI), within the National Supercomputing Centre (NSCC).
“With an annual increase in the required capacity by 15%, cloud systems will consume 20 percent of the planet’s energy in 2025. In 2040, if something does not change, it will be up to 40%,” said InoCloud co-founder and managing partner of IPM Group Adrian Vyčítal.
“However, this trend already has visible effects in the form of increasing amounts of CO2 emissions in the atmosphere, as it is necessary for each large data centre to build its own power plant.
“In addition to offering state-of-the-art colocation facilities to its customers, InoCloud is also in an excellent position to provide innovative cloud solutions, computing power and superior performance in the fast-growing segments – artificial intelligence (AI), supercomputers and big data. We also have the ambition to offer digital innovation for industry use.”
The company said that its technology and complete software security for the “data centre of the future” further enables I4DI to build a cloud infrastructure in Slovakia to support the latest industry trends throughout the region.
I4DI-designed data centers is set to serve as a blueprint for future government or commercial cloud initiatives such as InoCloud.
“The data centres of the future, like InoCloud, will be game-changers for both computing power and energy consumption,” said Dr. Radoslav Danilak, founder and CEO of Tachyum.
“By partnering to provide Prodigy chips for InoCloud data centres, we will deliver extremely cost-effective computing solutions for corporate clients and government entities in various markets and industries.
“We look forward to InoCloud’s contributions to the I4DI community as we overcome the expected limitations on data centre capacity due to the explosion of big data, IoT, 5G networks and billions of network devices that continue to come online every day.”
