DartPoints, which launched in 2014 with an ambitious vision to build a national network of micro data centers, is planning facilities in five new markets.
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 best-prepared companies not only connect to the latest and greatest technologies, but they also connect back to legacy solutions. BASELAYER’s Shay Demmons shares how to utilize legacy technology, as well as new tech, while planning for the data centers of the future.
At some point, every owner or general contractor operating in the mission critical space has been asked about their dollars per megawatt ($/MW) for a particular construction build. Under the right circumstances and in the right environment, a low $/MW ratio can be the measuring stick for success. However, every data center is different, and it is important to remember that $/MW is not the only factor that determines the quality, efficiency and cost of a data center build.

Aligned Energy brings its efficiency-focused intelligent infrastructure design to Phoenix, where it recently opened the doors on a 550,000 square foot data center.
Luxembourg’s ETIX Everywhere is bringing its data center platform to America, seeking to replicate its success in bringing data centers to emerging markets seeking to become Smart Cities.
Today, organizations are more reliant than ever on technology to drive business imperatives and opportunities. IT departments must deploy modern infrastructure that supports critical initiatives such as cloud computing, big data, mobility, collaboration tools and social media. However, In many cases IT leaders are recognizing that existing data centers may not suitable for this new era in IT in their current state,thus the next step is whether to build vs buy. To Learn more about the build VS buy debate download this white paper.
