ALBANY, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Soluna Holdings, Inc. (“SHI” or the “Company”), (NASDAQ: SLNH), the parent company of Soluna Computing, Inc. (“SCI”), a developer of green data centers for Bitcoin mining and other intensive computing applications, announced today the formation of its new Advisory Board and the appointment of Daniel Golding, a former head of advanced engineering and data center innovation at Google. The Advisory Board has been formed to further accelerate the Company’s plan to offer its AI customers purpose-built facilities powered by renewable energy at ground breaking costs.
John Belizaire, CEO of Soluna Holdings, commented, “We recently launched Helix, an initiative to design an upgrade to our existing data center to address the needs of AI training workloads. Bringing on Daniel’s expertise with more than 30 years experience at companies like Google and Iron Mountain will accelerate Helix. The continual challenge in AI will be access to power, sustainability, physical space and compute availability. Soluna with its Helix program is on the path to solve this, and Daniel’s expertise will accelerate this mission. He will provide valuable advice to our Management Team and Board of Directors as we steer the ship to phase two of our strategic business plan. We expect to add more of the brightest minds in AI, data centers development, and renewable energy to our Advisory Board in the coming months.”
"The current view is AI workloads have to live in traditional data centers, but there are challenges with space, sustainability and the use of renewable power sources,” said Daniel Golding, Soluna Advisory Board Member. “Data centers are evolving and with the explosion of AI, sustainability is now an important imperative in the new wave of transformation. Soluna represents a novel approach to this new wave of innovation in data center design. I am honored to have the opportunity to help them shape the future of AI computing.”
