Wholesale data center developer Prime Data Centers will enter the Silicon Valley market with a project in Santa Clara, the company said this week.
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.
George Clement, Senior Application Engineer, from Intel, highlights a case study that shows the importance of data center management to gain greater insight into power demand, thermal efficiency, server utilization, and capacity planning in their HPC environment.
Michael Lahoud, Chief Operating Officer and Partner at Stream Data Centers, highlights four steps to ensure successful “marriages” or data center partnerships and for both client and provider, particularly the data center build-operate relationship.
The busway. From starting within the automotive industry in the 1930’s and now evolving to widespread use in data centers, the technology has made its place. A new report from Anord Mardix focused on busways aims to contextualize that evolution and present a fresh approach for 2020 and further. According to the company, “busway offers a high density, flexible power distribution solution for many applications.”
It’s a new landscape, with challenges posed by the pandemic as well as concerns about climate change. Innovation in advanced connectivity, healthcare solutions, and energy storage offers significant opportunities to harness new ways of thinking to help your organization succeed in this fast-moving world while meeting sustainability and resiliency goals. Join Rich Miller, Bill Kleyman and other industry experts for this webinar on September 30 at 2 ET.
We conclude our DCF Executive Roundtable with a discussion of the future of data center automation, and how it is being shaped by the COVID-19 pandemic. Several panelists believe the “lights-out” data center is drawing closer.
Since its introduction within the automotive industry in the 1930’s through to its current widespread use in data centers, busway offers a high density, flexible power distribution solution for many applications. Get the new report from Anord Mardix that explores a fresh approach — integral coupling — which utilizes a unique male and female coupling system that is integral to the individual busway sections.
Marc Cram, Director of Sales for Server Technology, highlights what the role of PDU design means for mission critical uptime in today’s data centers.
Get the new white paper from Chatsworth Products that explores the most beneficial applications for intelligent rack PDUs with remote power control, defines the key capabilities to require on intelligent track PDUs with remote power control, and lists additional monitoring and security capabilities that should be considered when selecting intelligent rack PDUs for use in laboratories, in remote/edge sites or when colocating enterprise-owned equipment into MTDCs.
Get the new white paper, by Chatsworth Products (CPI) and Innovative Research Inc. (IRI), that provides an overview of the key steps for optimizing the cooling performance of air-cooled data centers. This includes employing a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modeling software tool for analysis and exercising airflow management best practices that will help data center managers understand the what and how of optimizing airflow and, consequently, cooling performance.
