Etix Blockchain offers colocation services for HPC and Blockchain applications, and Mining as a Service capacity through a network of data centres located in the Nordics. Etix Blockchain benefits directly from the expertise developed by Etix Everywhere for the data centre industry and from the security products developed by Etix Labs

Etix Blockchain, a division of Etix Group dedicated to provide colocation services for HPC and Blockchain applications and mining as a service capacity, specified a large number of EcoCooling ‘3 CloudCooler Group’ modules for their new facility in Iceland.

With its ambient air conditions Iceland is an ideal location for data centers using the EcoCooling solution. A number of award winning data centre and cryptocurrency mining operators in the Nordics and Arctic circle have used EcoCooling solutions to achieve unparalleled cooling efficiency.

The Solution

The ‘3 CloudCooler Group’ module has been developed off the back of these installations to be the most cost-effective option for rapid deployment developments in remote locations. The design complements Etix Blockchain’s scalable data centre design strategy while also maintaining world class cooling efficiency.

Each group installed contains 3 ECV CloudCoolers®, containment, power supply and racking.  The ECV coolers provide 54,000m3hr of air directly to the miners while the Group design was chosen for its simplicity and scalability. The full solution including containment took just 2hrs to assemble from flat pack.

Estimated performance: The average energy use to support 5.2MW of computing load is estimated to be approximately 173kW as an annual average with a peak of 340kW.  This represents a pPUE of 0.033 for the cooling system.

“Opening two large-scale Blockchain data centers in Iceland in a very short period of time, we had to call on a trustworthy partner with solid experience to support us in this challenge. We have been cooperating successfully with EcoCooling to provide our customers highly-efficient data centers.”
