Blackcore by Exacta – The first 7 years…

July 2015

The very beginning…

Blackcore by Exacta was founded in 2015 by CEO Nick Rogers. At the time we were working with one of the world's leading financial companies, who approached us to see if we could build them an overclocked server.

Launching a new brand was new and exciting for Exacta Technologies. It felt like a new beginning; we were excited to start our journey into the world of financial technology.

The GEN 1 Platform

We spent months designing and building prototypes with the help of our partners. The rigorous testing process helped us determine the best system set-up. Here the GEN 1 range was born. The first system shipped in December 2015, over the next year we were building more and more 2U GEN 1 systems and shipping them all over the world. By 2018 our systems were deployed in the top 25 data centres across the world.

After months of research, development and testing, we shipped our first system.

The Launch of Generation 2

Here at Blackcore we continually evolve our systems to make sure that both our performance and our reliability stayed ahead of the market. The GEN 1 Range taught us a lot, but we believed we could push the boundaries of what was possible. Therefore, we spent four years developing a new system architecture with components of the highest quality, we also engineered a new liquid cooling system. We discovered that we could not only build systems with faster clock speed and higher performance but with our unique cooling assemblies, we could manage temperatures more effectively and produce system reliability beyond anything we could have ever imagined. Introducing Blackcore GEN 2.

It took us 4 years to create GEN 2, this platform truly changed everything.

Our New HQ

In March 2020 we moved our business to a state-of-the-art production facility in Bristol, UK. The move transformed the Exacta Technologies Group, as we now operate out of a building that has been purpose built for us and our range of systems. In 2020 our team increased by 90%, including new roles in production, support, sales & marketing.

Team Blackcore US

By September 2020 enquiries from the US had reached an all-time high and we were approached by a leading US Channel Manager who loved our systems and wanted to learn more. It was an ideal match, now Ciaran Kennedy manages Blackcore by Exacta in the US, which greatly benefits our US-based customers. In addition to appointing Ciaran, we purchased an address on Wall Street.

As our UK team grew, we knew the next step was to grow our presence across the pond.

Blackcore Resellers

As our popularity continued to grow across the globe, it was clear we needed to work with reseller partners to help us accommodate customers in India, China and Australia. SP Sysnet represents us in India, V-City deploys our systems in China and MEtech represents us in Australia.

GEN 3 Launches in NYC

On the twenty-third of June, we launched Blackcore's GENERATION 3 range of overclocked servers in New York City's Financial District. Our new range is powered by Intel's unrivalled CPUs and features extensive solutions for FPGA cards. GENERATION 3 provides a new platform of continuous improvement, we’re looking ahead to support the next 2 years of technology coming from Intel to ensure our systems and our clients remain at the highest level of server performance.

From day 1 of engineering GENERATION 3, we knew that this launch had to be big. Launching in New York was a dream, that very quickly became a reality.

2022 and beyond!

Where we are now…

Here we are fast approaching the end of 2022, what a year it has been for Blackcore. 2022 will be hard to beat, but if any year beats it, it will be 2023. We are so excited about Intel’s next generation of XEON processors dropping in Spring 2023, once launched these new processors will be added into the GEN 3 range.

Here's to 2023!
