Datum Farnborough hosts Bull’s cloud and HPC-on-demand platforms

Following on from a framework agreement earlier this year, Bull Information Systems has agreed a three-year deal with Datum to host Bull’s new cloud and HPC-on-demand platforms at Datum’s Farnborough facility.

Bull set high standards when looking for a data centre provider that could host its new cloud and HPC-on-demand platforms.  Andrew Carr, CEO Bull UK & Ireland, commented: “The high performance computing (HPC) market continues to grow dynamically. According to IDC, the growth in the overall HPC market will continue upwards, reaching $14 billion by 2015. Yet, while prospects look positive, HPC has, until recently, remained a narrowly-focused market and through HPC-on –demand we are opening it up to organisations that have never previously been able to consider it. When we were looking to establish these new cloud and HPC-on-demand platforms in the UK, an exhaustive selection process led to the choice of Datum as our data centre partner.”

Carr continued: “Bull’s aim is to become the trusted operator for enterprise data which means we set and demand high standards from ourselves and from our partners. Not only does the facility offer leading-edge efficiency and power density but Datum understands the enterprise journey to hybrid computing and the valuable role that cloud platforms and service providers such as Bull can play.”

Dominic Phillips, Managing Director, Datum Datacentres, adds:”We are delighted that Bull has selected our Farnborough facility for its cloud and HPC-on-demand platforms, affirming our position as a premium provider of secure, highly resilient and powerful co-location data centre services.”

The addition of Datum to Bull’s portfolio will enable Bull to establish live production facilities in the South East of England, and Farnborough will be linked to Bull’s Barnsley and Hemel Hempstead Network Operations and Data Centres to complete Bull’s offering of state-of-the-art co-location and disaster recovery (DR) facilities.
