Ault Alliance (NYSEMKT:AULT) stock is getting a boost on Thursday as investors react to an update on the capabilities of its Michigan data center.
According to a press release from the company, it’s now ready for as many as 40 artificial intelligence ( ) clusters at the facility. That includes clusters containing memory, data storage, networking, and GPUs from Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) and Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD).
Sentinum, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ault Alliance, operates the Michigan data center. Its ability to accept more AIs comes after it upgraded the location’s electrical resources in the second quarter to meet the growing demand for AI storage.
Milton Ault III, executive chairman of Ault Alliance, said the following about the data center upgrade in the news release:
“The deployment of AI clusters at our Michigan data center represents a pivotal step in our technological advancement and strategic growth. These state-of-the-art AI clusters are expected to significantly enhance our capabilities to support generative AI and machine learning, without disrupting our current Bitcoin mining operations.”
