Applied Digital is Revolutionizing High Performance Computing by Locating Facilities at Unique Power Sources

May 20, 2024


Applied Digital optimizes high-performance computing by leveraging unique power sources, and locating facilities at the source of power rather than in traditional cloud regions. This approach is particularly suited for AI workloads, which do not require ultra-low latency like video streaming. By targeting areas with abundant but underutilized power, known as “stranded power,” the company enhances operational efficiency and addresses power transmission challenges.

Wes Cummins, the CEO of Applied Digital highlights the company’s innovative use of stranded power to support high-performance computing projects and future expansions in a discussion with David Liggitt, the Founder and CEO at datacenterHawk. He mentions efforts to develop additional locations with a total capacity of one gigawatt, reflecting confidence in their sustainable and efficient high-performance computing solutions. This strategy positions the company well for continued growth and success in the industry.
