Crypto Mining Firm Compute North Launches Managed Services Offering For ASIC Miners

Announcements, Blockchain, News | March 24, 2020 By:

Compute North, a data infrastructure and colocation company based in the US, has announced the launch of MinerSentry and managed services for blockchain.

Compute North provides efficient, low-cost, infrastructure for clients in the blockchain, cryptocurrency mining and the high-performance computing space. With over 110 megawatts of scalable capacity and growing, Compute North hosts equipment from the industry’s biggest names, including Bitmain, MicroBT, Canaan, Obelisk, Innosilicon, and more. Compute North has facilities in Texas, South Dakota and Nebraska.

In a press release, Compute North said that its managed blockchain services, designed for clients that prefer to or need to be hands-off with the maintenance and upkeep of their miner equipment, offer customers peace-of-mind and confidence that they have a team working to get the most out of their mining investment by helping drive maximum hashrate, uptime and as a result, revenue.

“With continued momentum in developing fast scaling data center facilities, not only does Compute North provide purpose-built blockchain infrastructure to power mining operations, our new managed blockchain services removes the day-to-day complexities of optimizing mining operations,” said Dave Perrill, CEO at Compute North. “As market demands evolve, our team strives to provide solutions to help ensure the right infrastructure and technical support is available to meet the unique needs of the high- performance computing space.”

Compute North’s proprietary cloud-based management and monitoring platform, MinerSentry, will serve as the foundation for supporting the new managed service offering. The platform will proactively alert the Compute North support team of miner faults, allowing them to lead the troubleshooting process and dispatch onsite technicians as needed to resolve issues on behalf of the customer. According to the company, MinerSentry can handle key tasks without any human intervention, making the time to resolution for common miner issues even faster. It also provides detailed statistics, charts, and event reports.

“Our customers want their mining gear to be running at maximum performance so that they see the best possible ROI on their investment,” said Perrill. “The reality is, to accomplish this the average customer spends way too much time monitoring individual miners, troubleshooting technical issues, handling firmware updates and more. With our expertise and onsite technical resources, Compute North can take care of the essential tasks that our customers can’t, or perhaps prefer not to, in order to help ensure they get the most out of their mining rigs.”
