Next-Gen of Cryptocurrency Mining Farms / Genesis Mining #MiningTheFuture – The Series Episode 3


Building a data center of this kind
doesn’t only mean just filling up a huge hall with miners. We need to be strategic
about it, we have to pay attention to every single detail – from airflow
management to efficient hardware layout. I believe that this time we really
outperformed ourselves, both in terms of size and efficiency. This Sweden facility is absolutely massive, but something that’s been incredibly challenging to build, but also very rewarding to see all coming together. The size of the project
reflects our answer to how the mining market has developed in the last twelve months. And such, it’s about 10 times larger than our complete Iceland installation. The building that we chose to build the farm inside of
is a massive hall It’s very very big and it’s been an absolutely mind-bending experience to be fitting it with the data center design and making sure everything comes together cleanly. There were many people involved, everyone putting in the part of it, the expertise that he has
and what we came up in the end with it’s really something that we can all be proud of. Compared to in Iceland, the design of how each shelf looks here in Sweden looks quite different for the first time you look at it. Actually they could look quite similar: So we have the miners standing in a similar form factor, let’s say, but you can see how we took the design from Iceland and optimized it to the max. There’s no more gaps between the miners.
The benefits that we have from that is the maximum density, because there’s no free space left in the data center so no spare capacity that we’re wasting
and at the same time it’s really good for the cooling, which means that the airflow is really easy to handle. And so the general structure that we’re seeing right now on the data center is completely specified to match the requirements
of our mining pathway. While the size of this data center is so much larger than what we had previously and because of our hardware improvements and our software optimizations we’re able to actually maintain this data center with a similar amount of on-site maintenance personnel
as we need for much smaller operations. For example for our Iceland installation
we need about the same number of people than we do for this one even though it’s
a tenth of the size. What we’ve planned for this location is
quite a bit larger than what we have right now. So we’re really happy to show the current
state of things I think it’s already quite impressive we’re all really happy
with it, but this is not the final state of the
build-out. That’s going to be expanding over the next months and
we’ll be adding more machines sort of some empty areas we’re going to be
equipping some new areas with our infrastructure, so this is not a final
build-out yet, but it’s an ongoing process and in general the
size of this facility compared to what we’ve done previously and the
current steps that we’re taking to expand it even further are just
representative to what’s happening globally with the whole mining market. Genesis Mining is continuously working towards building larger, more efficient,
better data centers around the world and this Sweden facility is just one more
example of how we’re achieving that.
