TMGcore Unveils its Transformative Data Center Platform—And it’s About the Size of an SUV

At Supercomputing 2019, the Plano-based provider of data center solutions gave a look at the OTTO platform, which has the potential to help clients cut operational costs by 80 percent. It's a tenth the size of a traditional data center.

Plano-based TMGcore, a provider of data center solutions and manufacturer of data center hardware, has unveiled what it calls evolutionary technology that could transform the data center industry.

TMGcore’s OTTO platform—debuted at Supercomputing 2019 in Denver—is a completely automated, self-contained, two-phase liquid immersion-cooled data center platform (2PLIC). It features a closed loop system, uses no water, and is a tenth the size of a traditional data center. 

In September, TMGcore and Dallas-based architecture and design firm Corgan announced they formed a new partnership dedicated to re-envisioning data centers—making them smaller, more efficient, and a tenth of a typical size. The largest OTTO model is said to be roughly the size of a Chevrolet Suburban.

TMGcore said clients that use OTTO could cut their operating costs by 80 percent, while receiving 10 times more processing power per square foot.

“Data center hardware manufacturers today are tasked with building technology capable of handling increasingly vast amounts of data processing while addressing challenges including uptime, environmental impact and operating costs associated with building and operating a large data center—namely space and power constraints,” TMGcore CEO John-David Enright said in a statement. “We designed OTTO to address these major issues facing the industry.”

Enright said OTTO will provide companies with a solution that is scalable, quick to market, secure, and highly energy efficient, while remaining cost effective.

Clients can select from four different OTTO platforms: OTTO 600kw, OTTO Edge 120M, OTTO Edge 60XS and OTTO O.T.E. 60XS. The largest model, OTTO 600kw, is roughly 160 square feet.

All OTTO platforms have a fully automated server, PSU hot swapping (the ability to remove a component without powering it down), and can be controlled both locally and remotely. Plus, every platform is environment neutral, which means they can fit into existing systems or can tie directly into a new facility.
