High Performance Computing (HPC) Arrives at the Edge of Space

Where Earth, Space, & the Internet Meet

July 16, 2019

Goonhilly Earth Station has been at the forefront of technology since the dawn of the space age. Submer Technologies is partnering with Goonhilly and 2CRSI to bring high-performance computing environments (HPC) to the Edge of Space.

The Goonhilly site has a rich history as a center of communication. Ancient standing stones placed eons ago still mark important locations. And not only is this site home to the space tracking and communications center used during the Apollo Moon Missions, it’s still a major satellite receiving station and the landing spot for trans-Atlantic internet cables serving the UK and Europe.

Where Earth, Space, & the Internet Meet

On July 18th, Goonhilly Earth Station launched a commercial datacenter focused on HPC applications to help their customers perform research and process data as close to the source as possible. And the renewable energy platform will allow companies to achieve their technology objectives while boosting their green-energy and carbon-neutral credentials.These qualifications make Goonhilly the ultimate Edge location – sitting at the only point where earth, space, and Internet meet.

As an innovator in hyper-efficient immersion cooling technology, Submer Technologies is partnering with Goonhilly and 2CRSI – a leading international provider of HPC server hardware – to provide solutions with higher performance at less than half the energy consumption of traditional datacenters. A SmartPod immersion cooling system installed on-site will be running processor-intensive simulations using HPC servers provided by 2CRSI running the latest Nvidia* and AMD** chipsets to showcase the future of hyper-efficient datacenters during a series of special events over the next several months.

Additional information is available on the Submer website. Event updates areavailable on the Goonhilly News page.
