In the latest episode of the VMAccel podcast, we were honored to feature Faris Aljehani, CEO of DEMA Energy, a pioneering force in the energy sector of Saudi Arabia. This episode, hosted by our Marketing Lead and MENA Community Manager, Noor, dives deep into DEMA’s foundation, its innovative strides in energy optimization, and its pivotal role in supporting Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030.

VMAccel, a workload acceleration company known for pushing the boundaries of technological advancement, proudly selects DEMA as our company of the month for February. Our partnership with DEMA has flourished over time, grounded in shared values and a mutual commitment to innovation.

Together, we have embarked on collaborative projects that not only aim to revolutionize the energy sector but also align with the ambitious goals of Vision 2030.

Faris Aljehani shares his journey from an electrical engineer with a passion for Bitcoin to the founder of DEMA Energy.

This venture was born out of a desire to leverage unique aspects of Bitcoin mining for energy management and power grid optimization.

DEMA’s focus on sustainable energy solutions and data center innovations stands at the intersection of technology and environmental stewardship.

A significant collaboration between VMAccel and DEMA revolves around enhancing data center efficiencies through cutting-edge technologies like liquid immersion cooling.

This innovation promises to significantly reduce energy consumption, a critical consideration in Saudi Arabia’s harsh climate.

Faris highlights the potential for this technology to transform data centers in Saudi Arabia, which currently lag in efficiency metrics compared to global standards.

Moreover, our partnership is exploring the use of hardware technologies like FPGAs for specialized applications, moving beyond traditional computing solutions. This approach not only optimizes performance but also contributes to energy conservation—a testament to our shared vision of a more sustainable future.

As DEMA Energy stands at the forefront of supporting Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030, it aligns with multiple initiatives aimed at diversifying the economy, reducing oil dependency, and promoting sustainable development. Through projects like the energy compute box and high-performance computing nodes, DEMA is setting a benchmark for innovation in the energy sector.

VMAccel is excited to support these initiatives, contributing our expertise in workload acceleration and hardware optimization.

Our team is preparing to visit Saudi Arabia, working closely with DEMA to implement these transformative projects. This collaboration not only underscores our commitment to technological excellence but also reflects our dedication to fostering sustainable development and innovation.

As we continue to build on this partnership, we look forward to bringing more optimized solutions to the market, supporting Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030, and contributing to a sustainable and diversified future.

Stay tuned for more updates on our projects and the impact they promise to bring to the KSA and beyond.
