Lefdal Mine Datacenter specializes in hosting High Performance Computing (HPC). We believe we offer one of the leading data center solutions in the world for HPC – The Norwegian Solution. A unique green, cost-effective, secure solution where all deployments are tailored to our customers through our highly experienced operational and management team.
With low power prices, PUE under 1.15 and up to 100 KW/rack through our special designed cooling solution, we normally are 50-60 % lower in cost than other suppliers in Europe.
In addition to low operational costs, we tailor-make infrastructure and service layers and through modular build out we optimize the cost of capacity even further for our customers.
HPC places special demands on safety. Many of the organizations that work with HPC, such as the automotive and aerospace industries, medicine, and research, have high demands on the physical security in and around the data center. Lefdal Mine Datacenter offers one of the most secure data center locations in the Nordics.

One can chose to deploy own infrastructure, IaaS, fully managed HPC services or hybrid models. Own infrastructure can be provided in Tier I-III and non-redundant environments.
LMD with partners offer turnkey solutions from unmanaged Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) up to full-managed Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions. The delivery model gives enterprises the ability to run computationally intense workloads by renting them instead of a blanket purchase. Can be deployed as stand-alone compute or in hybrid with existing inhouse infrastructure.
Current HPC clients
Lefdal Mine Datacenter has a set of international HPC clients. Typical deployment is more than 1 MW and is divided in critical load (10%) and non-critical load (90%). Each deployment is tailor-made to deliver an optimal solution in terms of SLA requirements and pricing.
Critical load is normally delivered on redundant solutions equivalent to Uptime Tier III. The non-critical loads are delivered on Tier I or II or and in some cases on non-redundant solutions without generator and/or UPS back-up on the power. Latter will in SLA’s relay on the uptime in the grid and is a highly cost-effective solution.
