atNorth celebrates expanded relationship with AI scale-up Diabatix

Jan 28, 2022

Ground-breaking generative thermal design pioneer Diabatix has expanded the scope of its strong relationship with atNorth.


The Belgian thermal design software company was founded in 2016 by Lieven Vervecken. Using AI, Diabatix’s unique ColdStream platform allows engineers to accelerate the design process of PC cooling products. It is being used across a wide range of sectors, including automotive, IT and aerospace. 


Before ColdStream was introduced to businesses including Panasonic, engineers could spend weeks or months creating the optimum design for their products. Now, Diabatix’s intuitive software, which can be used on any browser and requires no in-house HPC capacity, has shortened this timeframe considerably. 


atNorth and Diabatix’s relationship began in 2018, when the software company began to make use of atNorth’s HPC capabilities for its research and development (R&D) tasks. Now, the two companies have signed an agreement to triple Diabatix’s HPC capacity and support the entire simulation’s workflow by adding GPU-accelerated pre-and post-processing and storage capacity. 


These new services will allow Diabatix’s R&D team to significantly expedite the internal development process. By relying more heavily on atNorth, the Diabatix R&D experts will be able to develop and test new methods, algorithms and features for company’s generative design platform, ColdStream, in the most efficient way possible. 


The Nordic data center company’s sustainable offering is also helping to drive Diabatix’s commitment to decarbonizing its business. atNorth’s data centers run on renewable energy and the naturally low temperatures at the locations of its centers to cool its hardware, keeping the operations at net zero emissions. 


Lieven Vervecken, CEO of Diabatix, explains: We are very pleased with the uptime, quality and reliability of atNorth’s services. We, and our clients, also appreciate the sustainability of atNorth’s HPC solution, which it offers from its 100% renewable-energy powered data centers in Iceland.” 


Guy D’Hauwers, Vice President of Cloud, High Performance Computing & AI at atNorth, says: We are delighted to have expanded the scope of our relationship with Diabatix and to continue to support the innovative company with its ambitious growth plans as well as its decarbonization commitments.”
