On January 27th, reports of a rapidly spreading ransomware attack started to emerge from Ukraine. The speed at which critical infrastructure networks were shutting down pointed to a ransomware application with a wormable component, whose virality called to mind the WannaCry ransomware. In less than three hours, the infection crippled banks, ATMs, public transport and an airport, as well as utilities provider Kyivenergo. Then it spread outside the Ukraine.

NFINIT makes an $8 million investment in cloud infrastructure and data centers

NFINIT | June 02, 2022

NFINIT, a LightEdge firm, is upgrading its two San Diego data centers for an $ 8 million update to improve energy efficiency and critical infrastructure resilience. In addition, NFINIT is upgrading its cloud infrastructure (including hardware and software), replacing an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS), a battery that keeps operations running in the case of a power outage, and adding new chillers as part of this update. NFINIT's new equipment is among the most environmentally friendly on the market. "This major investment in our infrastructure translates to significant customer benefits in three areas: sustainability, reliability and cost stabilization. Reliability is part of our DNA, and investing in our UPS equipment is critical to keeping clients' data safe. Also, by increasing NFINIT's power effectiveness by 20%, we're keeping pace with data growth trends in a more sustainable way, while also helping to mitigate rising power costs for our clients. With the backing of our new partnership with LightEdge, a strong promoter of ESG initiatives, our flagship data center on Lightwave Avenue is on track to becoming the most sustainable data center in the San Diego area." Gabriel Faulkner, VP of Critical Infrastructure at NFINIT LightEdge bought NFINIT in April. Future investments are planned by the firms together to improve NFINIT's energy efficiency even more. LightEdge recently teamed with Synetic to divert 6,800 pounds of e-waste from the landfill and assist the Circular Computing reforestation program as part of its commitment to sustainability. Unlike most data centers in the area, NFINIT's flagship facility was designed from the ground up to be a data center rather than being converted from a warehouse. This means that crucial efficiency and reliability factors like air flow and physical security were optimized from the start. As a result, the data center will have a 20 percent higher power use effectiveness (PUE) of 1.25 after the improvements. PUE is a typical industry statistic for determining the energy efficiency of a data center. "We're investing in infrastructure upgrades that allow NFINIT to alleviate the utility fee rise for our customers as much as possible," Faulkner continued. "Over the last three years, power costs in San Diego have increased by roughly 41%, and NFINIT has only passed on about 13% of that rise to our customers." For data centers, uptime is just as important as energy efficiency. Because many data center outages are caused by UPS failure, maintaining a modern UPS is one of the most crucial components for consistent data center uptime. NFINIT's dependable maintenance practices, as well as its mix of in-house and on-call local contractors, have helped the company maintain an industry-leading uptime and availability record for the last ten years.
