Working in conjunction with Phaeton and Flow Resources of Western Australia, Atomic 6 have developed a rapidly deployable, off-grid data centre.
Where others are cramming off-the-shelf servers into shipping containers and then plugging them into the power point, we have revolutionized the way that data can be managed.
Data consumes a heap of power - so the task of getting an off-grid data centre is significantly harder than it seems. Here are the issues:
1 - Data centre needs to be powered 24/7 - the sun and wind is only available for periods of the day or week.
2 - Data / servers or data mining consumes a heap of power
3 - Off grid means off-grid - NO connection to mains power.
Our solution has had to look at the entire equation of:
max power generation with set / limited amount of space m2 available (solar farm is not the solution)
reduce power consumption - we have completely redesigned the way a server operates.
seek alternative ways of cooling
seek alternative ways of powering
Additional surface area means additional solar harvesting. So a fully customised unit was developed which is made from aluminum honeycomb, steel frame structure (for robust lifting / crane) plus an expandable option that can be laid in a solar farm type assembly able to be deployed anywhere on the planet.
The packaged system has been designed to be able to be neatly rolled into a C17 Globemaster plane using built in caster wheels and hydraulic legs. 7 of these can be placed into a single flight for deployment. Given the unit comes with its own power and satellite internet, this makes for a perfect defense or disaster solution. Data, command centre, toilet block or medical.
There is a lot more about this that cannot be discussed in a public forum, so reach out to us to find out more about why this is so special.
The MK2 version is already in pre-production. Using the same basic shape and operation as a Hive module, this is set to be quicker to build with more solar and new generation dual wind turbines which we have developed ourselves. The internal hardware system is top secret at the moment, but very exciting and has the potential of impacting the entire IT world for both data and crypto processing. This MK2 is very exciting.
Another version we have developed is a multi-tower system for crypto mining. Where mass processing and as a result, mass power consumption is required. These towers have been designed to create mass air-flow in a combination of Venturi valves and syphoning of air from thermodynamics.
Above is a small scale demonstrator built to verify the concept. We are now looking to use this for rural residential houses to place sewer, water treatment and battery storage in a 4kW solar enclosure.
