Insights: Data Center Design
Data Center Frontier charts the future of data centers and cloud computing. We track the latest developments in data center design, providing updates on the innovations and best practices for creating energy efficient and sustainable data centers.
Our thesis: New markets will require new approaches to datacenter design, creating facilities that can operate with very different climate and energy profiles. This will require major innovation in the way data centers are designed, built and powered.
Our stories provide insights into the role of modular and pre-fabricated data center designs, the impact of the Open Compute Project and open hardware movement, and new approaches to creating data center racks and servers.
The rise of artificial intelligence, and the GPU computing hardware that often supports it, is reshaping the data center industry’s relationship with power density.
Nautilus Data Technologies is the latest company to pursue a water-based data center. It is building a water-cooled data center on a barge in Vallejo, Calif. and says it will lunch by the end of 2017.
The SRP DataStation places modular data centers at the bulk transmission lines that represent the fast lane of the power grid, allowing them to operate without a UPS or generator.
When it comes to increasing speed in the data center the challenge is to look ahead and know what you have to be prepared to deliver – in the immediate future and later on – and chart the most expedient and flexible course forward.
