OUR VISION & MISSION

Bringing the
data center
to the power

The need for turnkey digital infrastructure is perhaps the greatest market need in the world. 

Over the last 20 years, there has been tremendous growth in co-located cloud computing. Companies have increasingly opted to move from self-managed IT & server infrastructure to outsourcing their digital needs. But the explosive growth of Artificial Intelligence (AI) development has led to a very different set of needs and solutions. 

Power and infrastructure are the bottleneck of the AI race.

That's why we founded Klondike Digital Infrastructure: instead of bringing power to the data center, we're bringing the data center to the power.

By utilizing behind-the-meter, on-site power, we're addressing all of the major constraints of digital infrastructure development, providing grid stability, significant transmission capacity, power reliability, energy cost savings, and scalability.

Data centers 1.0

The history of data centers:
version 1.0

Over the past 20 years of data center development, data centers have traditionally been located on individual sites in close proximity to end users in order to minimize latency issues.  These sites have typically required connection to the local grid, creating a "power struggle" with consumers as the business has grown.

The challenge

With the rapid development of AI and accompanying explosive growth in power needs, we need a much faster, larger-scale solution than traditional data centers can provide.

With the current data center development model, AI has the potential to overstress the existing power grid and utilities, driving electricity prices for consumers much higher and compromising the stability of the grid.

 

 

To address this challenge, the world needs a new model for data center development. 

What's the solution?

Data centers 2.0

The solution:
data centers version 2.0

Data centers version 2.0: locating data centers "behind the fence" adjacent to independent power sources.
