Lithium-ion batteries have become an “invisible” but significant part of our everyday lives. In the past 10 years, lithium-ion batteries have been introduced as an energy storage solution for Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPSs) in data centers and mission-critical facilities. Download the new white paper, courtesy of LiiON, that shows readers how utilizing lithium-ion batteries can help them to achieve key efficiency and resiliency goals for today’s data center design engineers and operations engineers.

In this week’s Voices of the Industry, Bob Woolley, Vice President of Critical Facilities Engineering and Design at RagingWire Data Centers, examines how the data center industry should respond to new design requirements for hyperscale cloud, the enterprise and more.
The Data Center Design & Construction Conference, presented by the marcus evans group, will convene on August 15-16 at the Marines’ Memorial Club & Hotel in San Francisco.
In the wake of our growing digital economy and a data center industry that’s continually challenged with staying ahead of the customers’ IT roadmaps, different end-users have emerged to distinguish themselves with varying data center requirements. The evolving challenge, however, is how to efficiently build data centers for various types of users. The new white paper from Stream Data Centers explores the differences between enterprise users and cloud providers as two examples of data center users who present contrasting challenges in design and construction requirements.
Vapor IO has unveiled its vision for edge computing, powered by a platform using cloud concepts to create a high availability colocation network across clusters of compute nodes.
All-flash storage solutions are gaining traction, offering the potential to cut costs by consolidating petabytes of storage onto a smaller, more nimble infrastructure. Bill Kleyman examines the key factors in adopting all-flash solutions.
The future of the data center architect is direct integration with business, applications, and IT teams during the design process, writes Bill Kleyman.
IT needs are evolving and specifying the changes we need to make to our most critical data center services. This is the second entry in a Data Center Frontier series that explores how to create complete resiliency and compliance for mission critical data centers.
Switch has updated its MOD Data Center Design to package its innovations in a smaller form factor, allowing it to expand beyond hyperscale projects to enterprise, edge and smart cities infrastructure.
