BitFury Group,a Bitcoin Blockchain infrastructure provider and transaction processing company, will open its third mega data center this week.
This new mega data center will be located in the Republic of Georgia and will have a capacity of 40 MW of electricity to process transactions using BitFury’s latest generation 28 nm and 16 nm ASIC chips. The new processing center will take full advantage of BitFury’s proprietary immersion cooling technology developed by Allied Control which BitFury acquired earlier this year and locally sourced hydroelectric energy. BitFury’s immersion cooling systems will enable energy-saving data center cooling systems for high performance computing applications.
“This data center will take immersion cooling technology to the next level and set a new standard for data processing using renewable energy. BitFury is leading the innovation in this space and we are proud to unveil our new data center and to work with our global partners to advance this important work,” said BitFury CEO Valery Vavilov.
BitFury uses renewable energy for all its data center operations. Allied Control specializes in the new, two-phase (2PIC) immersion cooling technology which significantly increases power density to a record-breaking 250kW per horizontal rack from about 5kW to 10kW average, reduces cooling energy consumption by more than 96% with a PUE of 1.02, accelerates deployment time drastically and delivers on environmental sustainability.
BitFury builds its own full-custom Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs), PCBs, servers and data centers. The company will leverage Allied Control’s award-winning 2PIC technology to deploy its 28nm and 16nm ASICs. The innovative 2PIC technology will enable BitFury to lower operational costs by allowing to run ASICs more efficiently. It also makes it possible to run fewer chips hotter, especially early in the product life cycle. 2PIC also provides the capability to recycle virtually all of the waste heat for local industrial or municipal use, lowering net operational costs.
The effect is operating at nearly carbon neutral when using renewable energy to power the immersion cooling system.
