By placing data centers subsea, we reduce latency by up to 98% and reduce power consumption and carbon emissions by 40%.
Each full scale pod takes 12 weeks to manufacture and deploy. We can assemble and deploy anywhere in the world.
We benefit from free, passive cooling which leads to a decrease in the amount of power needed to operate our centers. This decrease equates to up to 750t less CO2 being emitted per year, per pod.
Our design is scalable and can provide infrastructure that delivers rapidly anywhere in the world, solving problems of data residency, bottlenecks, underdeveloped infrastructure, latency, and more.
Subsea Cloud believes there are eight main challenges that face the data center industry today.
We solve them all.
Competition for available land in suitable locations is on the rise, increasing the cost of traditional data center development. Building up – often a solution in land-scarce areas – doesn’t solve power or weight issues. The seafloor is virtually unlimited in its capacity to safely house our data centers and requires permitting for access, ensuring that projects have minimal environmental impact.
Cost to build
On average, we are 70% less expensive to build compared to our on-land counterparts.
Data centers are typically located in rural, landlocked areas where power is cheaper, placing them far away from metropolitan areas. Our data centers are located near coastlines and benefit from long-term contracts with power providers to get cheaper power while staying close to our users. We also benefit from our proximity to renewable energy sources like offshore wind, which provide cheap and clean power, too.
We provide rapid development and deployment quickly and seamlessly, way beyond what is possible on land. We benefit from a rapid infrastructure delivery model and we have no upper limit on deployment numbers. We are infinitely scalable near densely populated areas.
We are designed to let a business do what it needs to, when it needs to, where it needs to. As data center providers, we are the producers of service outcomes, not simply physical infrastructure. Thanks to our modular design, flexibility (choice of data center type) and agility (size, scalability, and location preferences), we are a supportive solution rather than a control point for what gets delivered.
Traditional data centers use millions of gallons of water each day and produce astonishing amounts of CO2. At subsea Cloud, we use zero water, zero refrigerants and zero harmful chemicals. Every pod we put in the water prevents CO2 from being emitted. Fitting into the overall subsea ecosystem is of the utmost importance to us. We plan to colocate with all types of renewable infrastructure, consuming renewable power exclusively by 2026.
Many countries now require companies that operate within its boundaries to store data on their residents locally. Using residency-as-a-service providers is becoming an important option, but it isn't always easy in infrastructure-poor and resource-poor areas. Our pods only require connection to the subsea infrastructure (power and data cables) that already exist in order to achieve data residency compliance.
Data centers tend to go where power and land are cheaper, but that's not always where the users are – this results in latency. More than half the world's population lives coastally. Being closer to the coast therefore reduces latency due to the rate that signals travel. Ultimately, this means consumers get a boost in performance.
