Data centers need tools that can calculate current data center performance and predict future performance. Future Facilities outlines how a Digital Twin platform streamlines data center design and operations management.
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.
Demand is growing for software solutions that can simplify the process of monitoring and reporting CO2 emissions for data centers. Join Data Center Frontier’s Editor in Chief Rich Miller for an hour long webinar on January 26, 2022 at 1pm, when Rich will discuss green IT strategies with Rami Radi, Senior Software Application Engineer, Data Center Management Solutions for Intel.
Compute and storage are typically the priority in micro data center racks, so cooling, uninterruptible power supplies, batteries, security, and fire protection must all compete for whatever space is left. In this white paper, Viking Integrated Safety outlines their 1U fire protection solution that provides smoke detection and residue-free extinguishing.
The complexity of integrating new equipment into a rack can equate to long lead times for the deployment of new services or solutions. In a new white paper, ASA Computers explores how optimized pre-integrated racks sent directly from the factory can reduce solution deployment times.
Many large power consumers, like data centers, have corporate objectives of carbon neutrality, but find themselves having to achieve this through buying carbon credits to offset their carbon output. John Gould, Chief Revenue Officer of Enchanted Rock explores how hybrid microgrids can help data centers, and other large energy users, lead the way when it comes to achieving their net-zero carbon emission goals.
Space in micro data centers is limited and must be carefully managed. Compute and storage are typically the priority, so cooling, uninterruptible power supplies, batteries, security, and fire protection must all compete for whatever space is left. A new white paper from Viking Integrated Safety outlines the company’s 1U stand-alone fire protection solution.
ASA explains how factory integration for rack-level deployments can save enterprises time and simplify ongoing management. Pre-integrated racks are plug and play solutions that can allow data centers to quickly deploy new digital infrastructure.
Price and response time continue to be key infrastructure decision drivers for IT professionals. A new white paper from Service Express reveals the results of a recent survey of US IT professionals, including their data center priorities.
