From Dell’s customer site experience site. Lauren Miehe, Co-Founder and Head of Operations, Bitcoin ASIC Hosting:
Large residential operations are no longer feasible for the latest generation of bitcoin-mining hardware. We have all the cloud computing capabilities we need to host all our current customers, as well as future ones at Dell’s Western Technology Center.
Dell stepping in the Bitcoin mining world is a nice step, and we will keep an eye one it.
Allen Oh, Co-Founder of Bitcoin ASIC Hosting:
Dell being a pillar in the data center industry allowing a new cutting edge technology to be included in their leading Tier 3 data centers is a huge step.
Dell also opening their doors to a smaller local company shows it has not forgotten it’s roots, and actively helps new start ups grow.
Currently, Bitcoin ASIC Hosting are running between 130 th/s to 160 th/s in the Dell data center. They can add up to an additional 4 MW of capacity at the Dell data center.
Bitcoin mining requires power-hungry, purpose-built servers running all out 24×7, so Bitcoin ASIC Hosting sought a co-location partner near low-cost energy sources to run its machines.
Bitcoin ASIC Hosting avoided higher-cost power and gained redundant connectivity, cooling and backup emergency power by colocating its high-performance PCs at the Dell Western Technology Center in Washington state.
• Avoided much higher power costs
• Launched colocated operations in less than 10 days
• Gained redundant network connectivity
• Increased hosting reliability and resiliency via backup power
• Improved its carbon footprint
CCN will have an exclusive interview and more information on Bitcoin ASIC Hosting, their hosting deal with Dell and build-out of their data center to expand their offerings.
