Non Stop Systems chooses the StarDC datacenter to host its platform CloudStar

The system integrator Non Stop Systems specializes in cloud and high availability systems.

Under the nu@ge project, they developed a hosting platform IaaS, to provide to their customers their own cloud infrastructure.

The first platform was commissioned in June 2014. Since, it is operational without a single interruption. Non Stop Systems chose StarDC datacenter to host Celeste CloudStar.

Marc TRIBOULET, President of Non Stop Systems, said « We needed a capacity of 20 kVA for our hyper converged solution with unlimited access to our platform. Furthermore, we wanted to supervise H24 operational conditions and physically control access to our facilities. In our tests, we have interconnected the supervision of StarDC with our own control systems. CloudStar StarDC form and a hosting solution for high quality cloud. We take customers regularly to visit our platform in the StarDC. The level of finishing and the quality of service impress and allow us to enhance our solution.  »

Non Stop Systems markets its platform with the Star Cloud StarDC to its customers businesses and communities. Triboulet Marc adds « the future of Cloud, is also in a distributed architecture. I am convinced that much of the future of cloud infrastructure will be distributed in many centers as the StarDC around the world.  »

The StarDC is an all-in-one turnkey datacenter, operational in just 5 days. Its capacity is 4 racks, or 168 servers with available power of 20 kVA.

All critical components are redundant (power and cooling). The StarDC uses the principle of free cooling and optimizes the flow of air flow by partitioning the cold aisle and hot, which eliminates the need of conventional chilled water and significantly reduce operating costs circuits . The StarDC is also equipped with anti-fire system, access control, video surveillance cameras and optical fiber arrays. Ecological and economical, its PUE is 1.25.

Art and sustainable development, CELESTE shows its commitment

CELESTE Greenflex supports the group in its mission of sustainability awareness to issues including energy and climate change through the art collection of French artists Lucy + Jorge Orta. Become a citizen of the world with the Passport Universal Antarctica.

Antarctic Passport universal was designed as part of the shipping Lucy + Jorge Orta artists on the Argentine scientific base of Marambio, located on the Antarctic Peninsula. Antarctic universal passport guarantees all those who wish, refugees, immigrants or ordinary citizens, the right to adopt a new universal identity without borders around a planet designed as a common good.

Partner of this artistic project for three years, the company provides its internal skills and techniques environmentally friendly ways at each stage of the process: site design by web developers, choice for a website hosting green in the data center of CELESTE. This computer data center, MARILYN, is the first ecological datacenter high density in the world. Tower design allows cooling to 95% of the time by the ambient air or « free cooling ». The increase in total power consumption is estimated at 35% compared to a traditional data center, an approximately 6 GWh economy. In addition, the heat generated by the machine is used to heat the offices. On the environmental side, the choice of flywheels and fiber optics has also been eradicated lead and copper in the data center.
The objective of this approach: bring together all those who want to act to increase awareness of global warming issues. A first partnership was with the agency clusters: Northern, Grand Large group of travelers in the world that can feed the site of their experience and that of those who go there. More generally, the purpose of the sharing site is to provide the platform to educate people and businesses that want to share gestures, promoting behavioral changes and innovations that limit the warming.
