The Friday before bank holiday is always a good day in the Keysource offices, but the team have another reason to be celebrating this morning.
Last night at the 2018 Data Centre Solutions Awards, Keysource picked up the award for New Design / Build Project of the Year for their project with the University of Exeter.
Keysource has been working with the University of Exeter as their key technology partner since 2016, supporting them as they looked at the different options available for deploying high performance compute.
Instead of adopting an outsourced compute model, the university decided to build its own data centre to act as the critical infrastructure for its proprietary HPC system, called Isca. Isca provides a next-generation research computing environment, combining traditional HPC with a private cloud infrastructure – which was a first for the UK education sector.
This would allow it to ensure its specific research requirements and capacity challenges were met and give it new opportunities to build partnerships with other universities, including the GW4 consortium, and industrial partners.
After collecting the award, Jon Healy, Managing Executive of Keysource said:
We are absolutely delighted to have secured this award in such a prestigious category. We were up against some major competition, so the success of the University of Exeter project is testimony to the hard work and ongoing dedication of the entire Keysource team, who delivered this fantastic and truly innovative facility on-time and with no disruption.
The DCS Awards are designed to recognise the product designers, manufacturers, suppliers and providers in the data centre sector.
