CyrusOne, a global data center developer and operator known for its unmatched speed in delivering cost-effective, cutting-edge digital infrastructure solutions, today announced its most recent innovative product: Intelliscale™. This state-of-the-art, artificial intelligence (AI) workload-specific data center solution has been developed specifically to address the rapidly growing needs of AI applications and services.
AI workloads are demanding increased performance and density, requiring a unique solution that accommodates increased scale and bespoke design. As a cornerstone of its design practice, CyrusOne developed Intelliscale as an enhancement to its build-to-suit solutions, partnering with several leading-edge technology companies. The Intelliscale data center is built upon an ultra-high-density foundation, optimizing space utilization and presenting the ideal solution for companies aiming to effectively scale their AI infrastructure. Intelliscale data centers can occupy just 25% of the space of typical data centers, depending on the application and needs.
"The exponential increase in AI workloads will inevitably further impact the unprecedented demand that our industry is facing,” said John Hatem, Chief Operating Officer at CyrusOne. “In this environment, planning for long-term AI growth is imperative and ensuring cloud service providers have the infrastructure to support it is central to making this a reality. Deploying Intelliscale today will allow organizations to secure their AI future. With this global solution, our objective is to establish an AI environment for our high-density customers that is efficient and flexible, empowering customers to enter the market more swiftly and cost-effectively."
CyrusOne has designed Intelliscale to operate with minimal land usage offering a variety of redundancy configurations tailored to individual needs. The company's leading modular manufacturing approach to data center development enables customers to utilize liquid-to-chip cooling technology, rear door heat exchanger cooling systems, and immersion cooling to achieve efficient cooling up to 300kW per rack, delivering unparalleled performance even under the most demanding AI workloads.
Intelliscale offers the ability to create a super high-density environment in a smaller building to maximize efficiencies across the board, and in some instances, existing facilities can be retrofitted to address dense AI deployments. In addition to space, there are additional converged infrastructure savings depending on their application. Intelliscale also offers sustainability benefits, including using less concrete and steel.
Eric Schwartz, Chief Executive Officer at CyrusOne, highlighted the company's unwavering commitment to innovation: "We are constantly challenged to deliver next generation solutions for what our customers desire, and Intelliscale is just one example of how we are responding. We're thrilled to be offering the data center industry's first-of-its-kind AI solution, a game changer for the industry."

Midas Immersion Cooling, LLC ("Midas Immersion" or "Midas"), an industry leader in immersion cooling technology solutions for Bitcoin ("BTC") miners and Data Centers, with the largest deployed single-phase immersion cooling capacity of any manufacturer, announced today that it has entered into a long-term supply agreement (the "Agreement") with Riot Platforms, Inc. (NASDAQ: RIOT) ("Riot"), an industry leader in BTC mining and Data Center hosting. Under the Agreement, Midas has secured an initial order of 200 megawatts (MW) of its latest generation of immersion cooling systems, as well as associated equipment and adiabatic coolers for Riot's Corsicana, Texas, operations. Midas designed the ASICE 2.0 immersion cooling systems in Texas, for manufacture in North America.
The Agreement provides delivery of the new immersion cooling systems by the end of 2023. Upon commissioning, the initial 200 MW of immersion cooling systems will bring the total deployed capacity of Midas immersion cooling systems to over 500 MW (0.5 GW).
Under the Agreement, Midas has also granted Riot the option to purchase up to 400 MW of additional ASICE 2.0 immersion cooling systems and ancillary equipment from Midas, on the same terms as the initial order. Assuming full exercise of Riot's option, the total worldwide deployed capacity of Midas immersion cooling systems would be in excess of 900 MW, upon commissioning. Riot may exercise the option, in whole or in part, through December 31, 2024.
"Midas is pleased to announce this landmark deal to continue as a trusted supplier to Riot," said Scott Sickmiller, CEO of Midas. "We remain committed to offering the best engineering, equipment performance, and customer support among immersion cooling providers."
"Riot is pleased to partner with Midas Immersion for our Corsicana Facility," said Jason Les, CEO of Riot. "Partnering with Midas will enhance Riot's approach in diversifying our immersion capabilities to ensure efficiency across our mining infrastructure, prolonging the life of our miners, while also increasing our ability to maintain low cost of power by eliminating the need for costly forced-air cooling."
