DENVER — Crusoe Energy is proud to unveil its Data Center Services offering — a new product within its scalable, clean, and low-cost cloud compute infrastructure. Digital Flare Mitigation, the technology at the heart of these services, combines the data center solution’s robust connectivity, security, and reliability with environmentally optimized electrical power from otherwise stranded energy sources. Crusoe’s Data Center Services match the networking and operational capabilities of core data centers while empowering organizations to meet their environmental mandates by dramatically reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
As the global reliance on data increases, the number of data centers worldwide is growing in parallel. These facilities, while vital to the digital economy, represent huge contributions to worldwide power usage and greenhouse gas emissions. Data centers’ global share of electricity consumption is approximately 3%. This number will likely continue to rise, driven by dramatic increases in required computational power for high-performance applications across artificial intelligence, machine learning, graphical rendering, computational biology, and more.
Crusoe’s Data Center Services position customers for unmatched environmental benefits without sacrificing the power of modern data centers. The company’s disruptive Digital Flare Mitigation technology derives power from a traditionally stranded resource: natural gas produced as a byproduct from the oil industry that is otherwise burned off by flaring.
Crusoe captures stranded waste gas resources, converting them into electricity to reduce methane emissions by approximately 98% and CO2-equivalent emissions by 63% compared to continued flaring. Notably, this technology achieves environmental and emissions results that dramatically outperform even solar and wind power. Tenants enjoy about six times greater reduction in CO2-equivalent emissions due to the continuous nature of flaring and the ability to reduce methane emissions, which are more than 80 times more potent than CO2 as a greenhouse gas.
Crusoe’s modular steel structures provide a secure, highly controlled environment, complete with security access controls, dust-proof vestibules, redundant HVAC cooling, and fire suppression systems. Power is delivered at flat monthly rates. Standard rack power density is available from 12.5 kW to 25 kW per rack, or 250 kW per module, and is scalable up to multiple megawatts with more upon request. A high-availability, dual-feed power design with an uninterruptible power supply delivers additional peace of mind.
Located in the Williston Basin of North Dakota and Montana, Crusoe delivers security for data that can be stored and replicated away from high-profile hubs, offering a discreet, diverse environment with low risk of natural disasters. Still, customers are never far from their data, leveraging extensive connectivity through a high-availability, high-bandwidth fiber optic network with microwave backup. This network, operated by Crusoe, delivers the following.
- 99.95% service availability.
- Access to multiple long-haul fiber optic routes.
- Private lines to anywhere in the world and to the public internet.
- Scalable data transfer rates from 1 Gbps to multiple 100 Gbps.
- Round-trip latency.
