Discover the prototype

DeepData

Project

DeepData is a very low PUE-value data centre; it uses the natural thermal properties of underground quarries for server cooling. The prototype, running since June 2016, achieved a PUE value of around 1.10 without optimisation.

DeepData

Security

Hidden from view in the disused underground quarries near Saumur in the Loire Valley, DeepData benefits from a naturally secure site.

DeepData

Sustainable

Low carbon footprint, reduced energy consumption, water consumption and surface area requirements. DeepData meets the challenging ecological requirements of our time.

DeepData

Economic

With a PUE value of between 1.10 and 1.05, DeepData offers major savings on IT infrastructure set-up and running costs.

DeepData

Modularity

Combining availability of space with a data centre housed in shipping containers, DeepData provides a modularity that is flexible and able to adapt to upcoming IT requirements.

DeepData

The consortium

At the initiative of the Pays de la Loire regional council, a nationwide consortium of companies has been working for nearly three years on the technical validation of this new generation of data centre.
The Pays de la Loire regional council initiated the DeepData project, with the aim of encouraging the economic development of the region by exploiting its particular geographic, economic and historic characteristics. Underground activity is in the DNA of the Saumur area.

The other partners

The DeepData project was developed at the initiative of the Pays de la Loire regional council. Saumur Loire regional development agency and the Maine-et-Loire local council also contributed.
Lucet quarries also worked on the technical aspects of the project.
