Stelia Partners with AQ Compute for NVIDIA GTC 2024 Showcase

Stelia Partners with AQ Compute for NVIDIA GTC 2024 Showcase




Stelia, a next-generation internet carrier engineered for high-capacity native elastic connectivity services, is thrilled to announce a new partnership with AQ Compute, an AI-ready data centre and colocation provider.

This new partnership begins with a combined presence at the prestigious NVIDIA GTC 2024 event in San Jose, CA from March 17-21, 2024. This world-leading event brings together the best and brightest developers, engineers, researchers, and IT professionals.

While other providers play catch-up to emerging needs, Stelia and AQ Compute have already joined forces to innovate beyond the conventional with solutions engineered for future challenges. Together, they're not just adapting legacy infrastructure — they're deploying entirely new platforms for network connectivity and data centre capacity.

Dan Scarbrough, Chief Revenue Officer Stelia commented: “The data centre environment is structurally transitioning to an AI-led world. It’s vital that innovative builders like AQ Compute and Stelia join forces in strategic partnerships to offer AI service providers a new generation of foundational technologies. We are delighted AQ Compute have chosen Stelia to deliver high-capacity NaaS services to their customers. Our wholly owned private backbone will support connectivity for their first campus in Hønefoss, giving access to over 150 Tier 1 Carriers, cloud providers, GPU service providers and IXP’s at Terabit speeds. Stelia will continue to accelerate the world’s best ideas with AQ Compute as they extend their data centre platform to other cities.”

As artificial intelligence and enabling infrastructure continues their rapid growth trajectory, they create new demands for connectivity and resilient energy, with major impacts on data centre energy consumption. AQ Compute pre-empted this challenge, serving companies in the throes of IT transformation with its fleet of critical, strategically located European data centres.

“The Data Center sector is the cornerstone to the growth of digitalization. The future relies on connectivity and bandwidth too; as such, we are privileged to announce our partnership with Stelia, an ultra-high bandwidth network service provider, enabling multi-terabit internet connectivity for accelerated computing environments.  AQ Compute is developing a pan-European portfolio of state of the art, AI and cloud ready data centers to support the massive growth of artificial intelligence and machine learning applications. With AQ Compute’s high density computing capacities in combination with Stelia’s high bandwidth connectivity services, we aim to create the leading connected digital ecosystem for AI companies,” said Henry Daunert, CEO of AQ Compute

The NVIDIA GTC event focuses on AI, computer graphics, data science, Machine Learning, and autonomous machines and will serve as the perfect backdrop for Stelia to demonstrate its powerful Network-as-a-Service solutions and AQ Compute to present their AI-ready colocation data centre platform to an in-person audience expected to exceed 15,000 and over 150,000 virtual attendees.

Stelia’s innovative platform, designed to seamlessly scale, starts at 120 Tbps per location, with an ability to expand swiftly to meet and exceed any customer requirements. Currently supporting a range of AI, HPC, and Deep Tech workloads for NVIDIA Elite Partners, our booth exhibit will provide a glimpse into how Stelia’s robust and rapidly scalable services empower real-time AI applications and Large Language Model development for our network of over 150 connected partners.

Stelia’s mission is to reshape the global connectivity landscape for Internet 3.0. Already present in over 50 data centres and a rapidly expanding global network footprint, Stelia is ideally positioned to meet the demands of NVIDIA's expansive ecosystem. From powering AI innovations to supporting the intricate needs of GPU clouds, Stelia’s services are engineered to exceed the expectations of an industry pushing the boundaries of possibility.

Don’t miss the chance to connect with Stelia and AQ Compute experts in person at NVIDIA GTC 2024 booth 1825 and discover how together they're driving the future of connectivity for a world reliant on instant data delivery and real-time processing.
