Colocation Services Available

We've partnered with Colovore, an industry leader in professional colocation services to make it easy to deploy, optimize, and scale-out high-density deployments.

Your servers will utilize modern, liquid-cooled data centers specifically engineered for HPC/AI/GPU servers.

NVIDIA has certified Colovore's facilities as DGX-Ready, and they currently have ~1,000 DGX systems running.

With 35 kW in every rack, fully-pack and scale your HPC in contiguous cabinets with no power, cooling, or distance limitations.

Have peace of mind knowing our colocation centers are staffed with experienced I.T. and web infrastructure professionals.

DBAs, CCIE network engineers, and Sys Admins are on-site daily at our facility and are available to help during business hours.

Strengthen your Colocation with Managed Services

Having a managed colocation plan will allow you to rest easy knowing that a team of experienced IT pros is keeping your servers running optimally.

Exxact will help you design, procure, and install the infrastructure, as well as manage what is running on it on an ongoing basis.

Exxact will actively be your “boots on the ground” for upgrading firmware and doing onsite hardware replacement for your NVIDIA DGX A100.

Let researchers do research without having to worry about any technical problems that may arise.

Flexible Leasing & Payment Options Accelerate AI Innovation

NVIDIA DGX A100 leasing can help you bridge the gap between deploying the infrastructure you need and saving your IT budget.
