Vertiv Introduces Simplified AI Data Centre Solution

Last week (April 2024), Vertiv unveiled an end-to-end AI power & cooling solution to make selecting data centre infrastructure easier and faster to deploy

Vertiv 360AI is pre-engineered for high-performance computing (HPC) and aims to make deployment across North America simpler. It comes in the midst of the company announcing a new portfolio of high-density data centre infrastructure solutions to support the higher cooling and power requirements of accelerated computing IT stacks.

This announcement comes in the midst of data centres wrestling with rising customer demand and soaring power usage. As Vertiv aims to disrupt the data centre landscape, its 360AI solutions will aim to accelerate greater AI adoption, whilst keeping energy use from rising dramatically.

Digitised management: Providing 2x faster deployment

The new Vertiv 360AI solutions are designed to accelerate AI adoption through pre-engineered infrastructure solutions, digitised management and end-to-end service. This hopes to result in up to 2x faster deployment compared to more typical infrastructure installation.

When it comes to new technologies, Vertiv 360AI aims to provide a more streamlined way to power and cool AI workloads. The solutions have a sustainable focus and are designed to include power, cooling, enclosures, end-to-end lifecycle services and digitised management.

As a result, the company hopes that customers will be able to deploy their systems faster with greater flexibility and customisation. Customers can reuse or retrofit existing cooling systems when possible to decrease deployment costs.

“Vertiv’s goal is to prepare our customers for successful AI adoption,” says Brad Wilson, Vice President of Technology at Vertiv. “Our Vertiv 360AI portfolio offers a simplified path for scalable AI infrastructure, addressing the new challenges that data centre professionals and systems integrators are trying to solve now, including retrofits of air-cooled edge and enterprise data centres, and build-outs of hyperscale green fields.”

The new offering also provides solutions that include AI test pilot support and edge inference to full-scale AI data centres. Initial models can power and cool up to 100kW per rack, according to the company.

This level of flexibility can support prefabricated modular data centre solutions and a range of different cooling methods such as direct-to-chip cooling.

Across all areas of its business, Vertiv is making a greater effort to be more sustainable, harnessing the power of innovation and new technologies in order to achieve this. The company even pioneered a new carbon-friendly prefabricated material in 2023 to construct its data centres in the hope that it can offer a sustainable alternative to steel.

By continuing to invest in energy-efficient technologies and renewable energy sources, those like Vertiv within the data centre industry can help to reduce environmental impact and ensure a more sustainable future for the digital age.
