Colocation

Since 2012, national supercomputers have been placed in CSC's data center in Kajaani. The data center meets international requirements, providing eco-efficient, flexible and secure colocation services.

 

Options

 

CSC’s national data centers (MDC-1 & 2) are located in VARASTO building at the Renforsin Ranta Business Park. CSC data centers reserve 3,000 m² of space and the two separated white space areas reserve about 160 m². MDC white space can house up to 80 air-cooled rack cabinets. Colocation service options are shared rack isle or customer dedicated colocation space. MDC Colocation service offers high availability and extremely efficient cooling for HPC workloads. The year 2020 average PUE value in MDC-1 was 1.03 and in MDC-2 1.20. Efficient PUE Value and Kajaani’s cost efficient electricity pricing results 50% savings when compared on Central European cost level.

MDC data center

 

LUMI data center is located in RATA  building at the Renforsin Ranta Business Park. LUMI has a total space of over 6,000 m², of which the white space accounts for approximately 800 m². Colocation service options are shared rack isle or customer dedicated colocation space. Colocation service offers high availability and extremely efficient cooling for HPC workloads, supporting both liquid- and air-cooled solutions. LUMI has one of the industry’s leading energy reuse effectiveness.
