Turn Key Data Centre Solutions

All projects start with an idea – some may be complex, others may appear simple. In all cases, whether Edge, HPC, Modular or Hybrid data centre solutions, the need to incorporate many different disciplines, components, vendor products and installation site characteristics, even the simple project can become complex.

Oper8 Global can work with you and your idea, confirm the project success criteria (technical and commercial), then design and deliver a solution that aligns with your requirements.

From Functional Specification through Commissioning to Operations handover and Maintenance, Oper8 Global can Turn Key your right-sized, fully integrated Data Centre solution.

Hybrid Solutions

Augment your Data Centre Strategy using an integrated Hybrid Data Centre solution deployed where you need it.

Delivering data centre capacity where you need it can create headaches around design, investment, operations and support. While centralised cloud and colocation solutions can support many business applications and processes, deploying a new data centre on-premise might feel like you’re not following your own strategy.

A Hybrid Data Centre solution can support your on-premise solutions without compromising your existing data centre strategy.

Hybrid Data Centre Solutions

A hybrid data centre solution is the integration of local, on-premise or remote data centres into your cloud and/or colocation strategy.

As the need for compute, data storage and IoT solutions being located where you need them, locally or in a decentralised site, a hybrid data centre solution can be aligned and right-sized for your business.

Hybrid data centre solutions may include:

  • All-in-one Nano Data Centres (Nano DC)
  • Micro Data Centres (Micro DC)
  • Edge Data Centres (Edge DC)
  • Modular Data Centres (RDDC)
  • Your existing Primary / Corporate Data Centre
  • Colocation Data Centre Services (Colo)

Hybrid data centre solutions are designed to complement your existing data centre investments.

Modular DC Solutions

Right-sizing capacity, functionality and performance with budget and business needs requires a modular data centre solution.

Modular Data Centre solutions can range from a few IT racks to hundreds of IT racks. Modular data centre design techniques are also used to deliver demand lead hyperscale data centre solutions.

Oper8 Global’s Modular Data Centres are designed to fit your specific requirements, located where you need them, anywhere. Solutions include factory constructed and tested modules shipped direct to site, modular warehouse models with expansion options, to container-like all enclosed ship to site facilities.

Oper8 Global does not use or repurpose ISO shipping containers, but designs and constructs our modules to align to the site and performance requirements.

Oper8 Global’s team members have been deploying modular data centre solutions for many years across many parts of the globe. Take advantage of our expertise. Contact Us to discuss your Modular Data Centre needs.

Modular Data Centres

Not all compute and data storage can be moved to the Cloud or to centralised Colocation data centres (though we can help with that too). Maintaining data centre capacity on-premise or located with industrial, educational, government or research sites requires a right-sized, flexible solution.

As a concept, Modular Data Centre design and delivery sounds straightforward, and in many cases it becomes more obvious as you need to align capacity with budget.  But without the right expertise to deploy modular data centre capacity, flexibility can lead to complexity, and impede operations and maintenance.

High Performance Compute

Is your next HPC investment targeting a Top 100 Linpack benchmark or higher?  How about Top 10?

As compute densities increase, we’re seeing 100,000 cores of compute become 1 or 2 million cores. How high can this go, and how what reliance does HPC performance have on supporting infrastructure to operate at its optimal level.

Benchmarks and performance lists are meant to be beaten, but getting the right infrastructure designed and deployed to help hit your target requires the expertise of the Oper8 Global team.

HPC & HCC Solutions

High Capacity Compute (HCC) and High Performance Compute (HPC) might be buzzwords across parts of the industry, but understanding how to design, deploy, support, operate and maintain these solutions on premise requires domain expertise.

Deploying high density compute farms to underpin your Research and Development, Medical and Environmental data processes requires infrastructure designed with intimate knowledge of your needs and the specific technical requirements of your platforms.

Oper8 Global maintains expertise in HPC/HCC infrastructure design, encompassing efficient cooling techniques, weight management, network and cable management and building integration.

Your next extreme density Super Computer or HPC solution needs infrastructure aligned to your success.

Edge Data Centre Solutions

Where is the Edge and how big is it?

The definition of “the Edge” can be an area of debate depending on the marketplace, country or business you’re in. Some data centre investors might think of a city with less than 3 million residents an ‘edge city’, while in your country, a town comprising 10,000 residents might be a more relevant metric.

Put simply, we regard the Edge as anywhere the large hyperscale and cloud-scale data centres are not.

This could be your city of 2 million people, your local town or village, your office, warehouse, manufacturing facility or new 5G cell location. The Edge is where you need it to be to meet your business and technical requirements.

Service Options

Cloud, hosted applications and software-as-a-service are valid and viable approaches to service delivery. However depending on the business process, application, and inter-process latency requirement, some centrally hosted systems cannot meet the technical or business objectives the organisation is seeking.

The answer can be to deploy compute, data storage and local network capacity where it’s needed – at the Edge, close to the industrial process and/or users. This approach can include cloud technologies being deployed on-premise with centralised cloud service interconnectivity, hence ‘hybrid cloud’ solutions spanning both local and cloud locations.

Edge Data Centres

Edge Data Centres deliver right-sized data centre infrastructure that aligns capacity (space, power, cooling and connectivity) with your IT system requirements at the Edge.

Such data centre solutions might range from 10RU to 200+ IT racks – they are designed and sized to meet the Edge compute, data storage, security, networking and location specific needs of your platform.

For individual organisations they are generally designed for their own use, whereas Edge data centre solutions delivering multi-tenant capacity are available for carriers, service providers and 5G network operators.

Why do I need a Data Hub in a Smart City?

While cloud services can facilitate many IT applications and services, cloud data centres are typically located in a large metro or capital cities, often located 100’s to thousands of kilometres away.  Many Smart Cities prefer to maintain IT skills and data centre capacity in the city to retain jobs and expertise that can help attract diverse business investment.  Similarly, many IT systems and applications are better served with local data centre capacity with commoditised Cloud and SaaS applications also supporting the businesses in your city.
