Challenges & Solutions

Challenges

Real Estate

Specialised data centre real estate is experiencing a shortage due to high demand driven by cloud computing, big data, and digital transformation. This scarcity poses challenges for businesses seeking.

Cost

Organisations must carefully allocate resources to build cost-effective, robust data centre infrastructures that meet their specific needs and future growth projections.

Equipment Failure

The generation of excessive heat within the equipment can result in untimely server and drive failures, compromising their operational efficiency and overall lifespan.

Power Consumption

Rising power consumption and associated expenses are compelling operators to adjust pricing structures in response to the growing financial challenges posed by energy consumption.

Deployment Time

The journey of infrastructure construction and data centre fit-out is a lengthy one, spanning multiple years.Such comprehensive efforts are necessary to guarantee a seamless and efficient data centre operation, emphasising the importance of early planning and proactive decision-making to expedite the timeline and meet business requirements.

Performance

The demand for computational power in computer applications is steadily increasing, necessitating more processing resources to handle the growing complexity and performance requirements.

Moratorium

The landscape of data centre operations is evolving, with authorities implementing more stringent regulations to govern their usage. This increased oversight aims to ensure data privacy, security, and environmental sustainability. As a result, organisations must navigate through a complex web of compliance requirements and adapt their data centre practices accordingly to maintain operational efficiency while meeting the evolving regulatory landscape.

Security

The escalating threat of cybersecurity poses a significant challenge across various industries and sectors. Organisations must actively address this growing problem to safeguard their sensitive data, protect against cyber attacks, and ensure the integrity of their digital assets. Proactive measures, such as implementing robust security protocols, conducting regular audits, and fostering a culture of cybersecurity awareness, are essential in mitigating risks and maintaining a resilient defence against evolving cyber threats.

Our Solution

Security

The utilisation of a hardware-based FPGA backend makes Protean technology virtually impenetrable, ensuring robust security and defence against potential breaches.

Cost

The cost of infrastructure is significantly lowered, presenting organisations with more cost-effective options for establishing and maintaining their technological foundations.

Performance

To enhance system performance, processor-intensive programs can be designated to execute on the FPGA backend, harnessing its power and capabilities. This strategic allocation optimises processing resources and boosts overall system efficiency.

Power Consumption

By harnessing the power of an FPGA backend, the Protean technology ensures a remarkable reduction in power consumption, paving the way for sustainable and eco-friendly computing. This innovative approach not only enhances performance but also contributes to cost savings and a greener future.

Equipment Failure

The efficient operation of the Protean technology at lower temperatures guarantees an extended system lifespan, free from frequent maintenance or unexpected failures. By maintaining optimal temperature levels, this advanced technology ensures uninterrupted performance and enhanced reliability for prolonged periods.

Real Estate

The need for dedicated and specialised real estate for specific purposes, such as data centres, has diminished as advancements in technology enable more flexible and scalable infrastructure solutions. Organisations now have the opportunity to leverage cloud-based services and virtualization techniques, reducing the reliance on physical real estate while gaining agility and cost-efficiency in managing their computing needs. This shift in paradigm allows for a more adaptable and dynamic approach to meet evolving business requirements without the constraints of traditional specialised real estate.

Deployment Time

The versatility of modern computing systems enables swift and hassle-free deployment in virtually any location, minimising the need for extensive cooling and power infrastructure. These advanced systems are designed to operate efficiently with minimal cooling requirements and reduced power consumption, offering organisations the flexibility to establish computing environments in diverse settings without the constraints of traditional infrastructure dependencies. This not only accelerates the setup process but also contributes to cost savings and sustainability by optimising resource utilisation.

Moratorium

The efficient power utilisation of Protean technology opens up new possibilities for its deployment, transcending limitations imposed by energy restrictions or moratoriums. By significantly reducing power consumption, organisations can leverage the benefits of Protean technology in diverse environments, including those with stringent energy regulations. This allows for the adoption of cutting-edge computing solutions in regions where traditional power-intensive technologies might face limitations, promoting innovation and progress while adhering to sustainable practices.
