Centro Epson Meteo - Espert Meteo has chosen Verne Global in Iceland as the location for all its HPC operations, following rigorous trials. During the trial period at the Verne Global campus Centro Epson Meteo - Expert Metoe halved the time it took to process computer models and could run more simulations at higher resolution. 

"Verne Global provides us with the peace of mind that we have our own dedicated infrastructure that’s optimised to meet our specific needs and backed-up by a team of real HPC experts, together with the flexibility and scalability that’s usually only associated with cloud-based services,” says Alessandro Perotto, project manager at Centro Epson Meteo – Expert Meteo. “What’s more, its precision-engineered data center appealed to us as scientists – it felt like the right place to house our mission-critical applications and the trial results proved our hypothesis. Of course, as climate change researchers, Verne Global’s access to 100 percent renewable energy was another vital factor in our decision.”
