Oslo, Norway – June 17, 2021 – Bulk Infrastructure, the Nordic’s leading provider of ultra-scalable, highly connected, sustainable data centers, has achieved OCP ReadyTM certification for all three of Bulk’s data centers. The certification, administered by the Open Compute Project Foundation (OCP), demonstrates the same highly efficient design standards embraced by tech giants including Facebook and Google to support the most advanced open infrastructure deployments.
The OCP ReadyTM colocation facility certification process uses a detailed self-assessment that is carefully reviewed by OCP according to well-defined criteria. Assessments evaluate a broad range of facility design aspects including access, white space, electrical, cooling, cabling and service. Bulk successfully certified all three data center facilities, including the Oslo Internet Exchange (OS-IX), Norway Data Center Campus (N01) and Denmark Data Center Campus (DK01).
“Enterprises, cloud and hyperscale tenants are looking more toward open hardware designs to support higher density workloads to meet demanding cloud migration, AI, research and other high-performance needs,” observes Rob Elder, Vice President, Data Centers for Bulk. “This designation reinforces our commitment to state-of-the-art facilities powered by 100% renewable energy.”
OS-IX is Norway’s best-connected data center, powered by renewable energy. N01 is the world’s largest data center campus powered by 100% renewable energy. And DK01 is an ultra-scalable, flexible and efficient Danish data center. Each facility has unique capabilities and all three meet the world-class design standards championed by OCP.
“Bulk understands the role of OCP solutions in pushing the performance envelope through open hardware designs and configurations,” says Steve Helvie, Vice President of Channel Development for the OCP Foundation. “We are thrilled to have Bulk as part of the OCP Community and fully support their mission in the race to bring sustainable infrastructure to a global audience.”
Bulk is the first to certify data centers OCP Ready in both Norway and Denmark and demonstrates the market-leading facility design and service options available in the Nordics. Together with abundant clean energy and competitive, stable energy prices, the region is rapidly becoming a destination market for data-centric industries and applications.
