Vertiv 360AI seeks to fuel end-to-end AI power and cooling solutions to simplify data centre infrastructure selection and deployment across EMEA

With customers seeking the power of artificial intelligence (AI) and high-performance compute (HPC), data centres are having to disrupt the digital landscape like never before.

In response, Vertiv is unveiling a new portfolio of high-density data centre infrastructure within its Vertiv 360AI offering, a pre-engineered infrastructure for HPC workloads. The new portfolio consists of high-density data centre infrastructure solutions to support the higher power and cooling requirements of AI.

Now available across Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), Vertiv 360AI is designed to accelerate AI deployments of any scale, with designs ranging from rack solutions for test pilots and Edge AI, to full data centres for AI model training.

This new offering comes in the midst of AI popularity continuing to surge, with data centre operators faced with the challenge of cooling down their infrastructure to support high-energy workloads.

Scaling up to meet unprecedented demands

AI and accelerated computing continue to drive demands at a scale not seen before within the data centre industry. As a result, facilities are facing a greater need for power and cooling capabilities, with rack densities anticipated to reach up to 500kW per rack, according to Vertiv. As a result, power and cooling infrastructure design and deployment has become significantly more complicated. 

Vertiv’s 360AI offering has been designed to provide a simple way to power and cool AI. According to the critical infrastructure company, Vertiv 360AI now holds a complete portfolio of power, cooling and service solutions that seek to solve the complex challenges continuing to emerge from the AI revolution. Its solutions also include validated designs and pre-engineered solutions, providing Vertiv’s expertise while eliminating design cycles.

“After the successful launch in North America, we’re thrilled to bring the new Vertiv 360AI portfolio to EMEA and boost our customers’ AI plans,” comments Karsten Winther, President for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) at Vertiv. “Our solutions provide a streamlined approach for scalable AI infrastructure, addressing the evolving challenges posed by high-performance computing. 

“Vertiv 360AI is designed to help accelerate retrofits of air-cooled edge and enterprise data centres, as well as the development of hyperscale greenfield projects.”

Powering the next generation of data centre innovation

Another new aspect of Vertiv 360AI is the featuring of prefabricated modular solutions to enable customers to deploy AI without disturbing existing workloads and without consuming floorspace. Initial Vertiv 360AI solutions can power and cool over 130kW per rack and include designs optimised for retrofits.

First launched earlier in 2024, Vertiv 360AI the company is hopeful 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 is also continually committed to reducing data centre carbon footprint. In 2023, it also debuted its prefabricated mass timber solutions to create more sustainable data centres. In a major move towards a greener future, the company is eager to support the environmental initiatives of its customers, whilst championing continued innovation.
