ESI's new European HPC Center Benefits from the Latest Datacenter Infrastructures by Legrand

ESI Group announces the opening of its new European HPC Center. The datacenter is now based on the Teratec Campus, an ideal location to launch collaborative High-Performance Computing (HPC) projects as it is in the vicinity of Europe's biggest HPC center: the CEA's "Très Grand Centre de Calcul". The new datacenter will effectively act as ESI's PoD (Point of Delivery), serving all ESI offices across Europe as a platform for ESI's new software development and engineering services alike. ESI teamed up with Legrand, the global specialist in electrical and digital building infrastructures to meet the technical challenges surrounding this project.

For years, Legrand has been supplying integrated solutions for lighting, energy, networks, and access management in buildings. Present in more than 80 countries with a workforce of over 36,000, the Group's mission is to design, develop, and market electrical and digital systems that are both simple and innovative. Since 2009, Legrand has intensified its activity in the UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) sector, as required for efficiently operating datacenters aimed at supporting HPC activities, especially with the acquisition of S2S in France.

To build its new datacenter at Teratec, ESI worked with Legrand Datacenter Solutions, a branch specialized in delivering adequate answers to the numerous challenges inherent to supercomputing: from energy efficiency to cooling, security, and scalability. ESI also teamed up with Minkels, a company belonging to the Legrand Group and specializing in datacenter hardware, including housing, UPS, cooling, monitoring and power distribution solutions, together with their partner Cap Ingelec, strong of 20 years' experience in data centers.
