In the data center, speed is everything. 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. The faster that available technologies and applicable standards evolve, the harder that job becomes. Download this white paper to learn more about current data center trends and how to be prepared.
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.
In a sign of strengthening demand for water-cooled racks, high-density hosting specialist Colovore has fully pre-leased a 2 megawatt expansion of its Santa Clara data center.
From the vantage point inside today’s datacenter it’s a safe bet that the pace of change in datacenters will accelerate over the next decade and beyond. Raritan asked the datacenter experts at 451 Research to examine the forces of change over the next decade so that they could share predictions about new datacenter types, and to suggest ways to get ready for the future.
Facebook will use heat energy from servers in its data center in Denmark to warm up to 6,900 nearby homes through a district heating system.
This Data Center Frontier Special Report on the hyperscale data center market examines the increasing need for data center and cloud resources from both the business and consumer service perspective and how it has led to the development of large-scale cloud-ready data centers built for hyperscale capabilities.
