In this Radio Free HPC podcast, Rich gives us the lowdown on his recent tour of the SuperNAP datacenter in Las Vegas. Run by Switch, the campus has over up to 2.4 million sqft of Tier IV Gold data center space with 315 Megawatts of datacenter capacity.

“Founded in 2000 and headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada, Switch is built on the intelligent and sustainable growth of the Internet. Its Founder and CEO, Rob Roy, developed more than 260 patent and patent-pending claims covering data center designs that manifested into their world-renowned data centers and their technology solution ecosystems.”

This silent video shows the Supernap facility cooling system.

After that, we do our Catch of the Week:

  • Shahin is impressed with ARM’s new Cortex A75 chips. “This is the first set of processing components designed specifically to tackle the challenges of onboard AI and machine learning.”
  • Dan notes that Google is possibly facing a $9 Billion fine from EU antitrust regulators for allegedly manipulating search results on its shopping service.
  • Dan also points us to a story on how the Bank of Canada is not sold on the concept of underpinning payment systems
    using Blockchain technology.

This video from 2010 provides an overview of the SuperNAP in Las Vegas. It was the best one I could find.
