For Immediate Release

Sapient Services, LLC, has procured funding to build and operate two new, cutting-edge data center facilities in the northern and southern hemispheres. Sapient is extremely excited about the project, which stands to push the boundaries of PUE to 0.94.

Built in different geographic locations, these twin data centers (NP1 and SP1) are to operate as one. Data will be mirrored to capitalize on their unique operational abilities. SP1, the site located at the South Pole, will operate entirely on solar power during the summer there. With all that free cooling, the initial calculations indicate a PUE of 0.94. This remarkable design will be mirrored at NP1, the North Pole site that will operate only during the summer there. Engineering for NP1 was a little more advanced due to the entire site having to be built on movable tracks to compensate for ice-floe movement.

As for operations, Terry Vergon stated, “We only need a single crew to operate both sites since only one will be in operation at any given time, reducing cost.” As one data center is placed into what we call ‘deep freeze’ for the winter, the team will transition to the other hemisphere to do a ‘cold startup’ of the other site. Each data center is completely self-contained with its own waste recycling processing, just like the space station.”

Sapient is currently looking to staff the facilities. If you applied to go to Mars and were not selected, we’d love to talk to you. People with prior service in submarines, Space Lab, or forest-station lookouts are encouraged to apply.
