Advanced solutions for high-performance computing (HPC) to harness incredible processing capacity.

Colocation for high performance computing (HPC) systems

High performance computing allows you to process data quickly, use advanced workflows or harness the insights associated with large pools of information using Big Data, AI or machine learning. Specialist IT infrastructure is required to support HPC and to provide the high power and cooling facilities which are needed. The advanced capabilities of high-performance computing propels organisations to the forefront of their industries, creating a competitive edge and improving customer experience.


Redcentric have infrastructure environments that can support you with your high-performance computing requirements. Our Gatwick data centre is specifically designed to provide increased power and a range of cooling options so that you can process data at high speeds and run applications reliably, cost-effectively and with minimal environmental impact.

Your HPC hosting, your way

Our data centres and private cloud platforms are purpose-built to handle these requirements. You can choose power capacity up to 45kW per rack and either rear door or immersion cooling so you can take care of your machines. And our high-speed, low-latency data connections, direct from our resilient core network, ensure seamless connectivity, whatever you are working on.

Meeting your high performance computing needs

A specially equipped high performance computing data centre can offer the power, cooling and storage you need for processing and analysing massive amounts of data:

Power icon


A regular rack could need as little as 3kW, whereas an HPC rack could require as much as 30kW of power.

Cooling icon


With great power comes a lot of heat. HPC uses specialist cooling technologies, such as rear door, liquid, or immersion cooling.

Scalability icon


HPC users need room to grow, which the right data centre can provide.

Such valuable systems need the very best physical and cyber security protection.

Delivering high performance computing from our Gatwick data centre

Our secure, award-winning UK data centre is the ideal environment to host high-performance computing systems. The Gatwick facility was specially designed for high-density deployments and includes:

  • Racks equipped with a ready-to-go power supply capable of up to 45kW, with sophisticated rear door cooling.
  • Incredible efficiency with a PUE of 1.14, helping keep your environmental impact and costs low. We also use renewable energy as our main source of electricity.
  • State-of-the-art uninterruptable power supplies (UPSs) which are carefully monitored and maintained to protect your HPC system from power failure.
  • The flexibility to house multiple HPC systems at once giving you room to expand your system in the future.
  • Choose from rear door or immersion cooling; our immersion cooling system has a capacity of up to 200 kW of heat dispersion, so no matter how dense your HPC is, we can host it for you.
