Recognize that the last line of defense in physical security between data processing and storage equipment and access by unauthorized users is a secure server cabinet. A new report from Chatsworth Products explores the potential of cabinet-level electronic access control to improve physical data security.
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.
As we approach 2030, data centers will feature ” lots more application-specific silicon being cooled by water,” according to Suvojit Ghosh, the plenary speaker at DCD Enterprise New York.

Virtual Power Systems (VPS),has secured $17 million in Series B Financing to fund the development of “software-defined power” for data centers.
Demand in North America and across the globe for compute, networking and storage capacity is surging at an unprecedentedly fast and furious rate. Compute loads are also becoming more dynamic as capacity demand varies widely from project-to-project, month-to-month, or even day-today. Download the new white paper that explores the today’s challenges to data center infrastructure and provisioning, and outlines Aligned Energy’s build-to-scale solutions for the data industry.
Lithium-ion batteries are used in a variety of current consumer electronics. Now, the colocation and data center industry is taking note and discovering the possibilities of using lithium-ion batteries as backup energy sources for uninterruptible power supplies (UPS). A new white paper from LiiON outlines a variety of potential advantages of using lithium-ion batteries to both data center designers and operational engineers.
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.
