Data centers must have the capacity for growth as digital transformations drive an increased demand for remote connectivity. A new white paper from Data Aire explains why fluidity in business and global economies requires future-ready flexibility, especially as relates to data center cooling.
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.
Given that the IT infrastructure of today nearly always spans outside of a centralized model, the challenge is how to manage an incredibly fluid, frequently mixed, and deeply cloud-enabled landscape – from desktop to data center, to edge, to the cloud. Jim Dowson of Park View Managed Services, deliberates how some IT Asset Management (ITAM) tools are no longer fit for purpose in the digital age where agility, speed, access, and automation are pre-requisites for widescale transformational app rollouts.
Zech Connell, Data Center Market Manager at ProLift Rigging, shares how project buffering saved Compass Datacenters both time and money when building their new Phoenix data center.
Increasingly severe weather events and the resulting power outages (some lasting weeks) exacerbate challenges to grid reliability. Enchanted Rock explores how dual purpose microgrids can offer both value to site hosts as well as stability to the grid at large.
Learn about common myths and where today’s modular modernization and the race to data center ROI impact digital infrastructure. A DCF special report courtesy of ABB looks at How Digital Modernization is Impacting Physical Modular Infrastructure.
The ongoing development of quantum computers will create a new class of data processing facility, which in many cases will be very different from the enterprise and cloud data centers seen today. Here’s a look inside Google’s Quantum AI facility.
When balancing cloud, data center, and even edge operations, here are some essential services and partner-specific capabilities to know about. A DCF special report courtesy of Panduit looks at how computational fluid dynamic (CFD) analysis helps you predict what you will need in the near future as well as catch inefficiencies today.
As an increasing amount of our day-to-day activities have at least one foot in the internet, we are generating a nearly incomprehensible amount of data. Brad Alexander, Chief Technology Officer at DartPoints shares six key benefits of containerization, including how it can reduce the strain of increasing IT demands.
Leaders in the edge, cloud, and data center space have looked to modular data center designs to ensure they can meet emerging requirements. A DCF special report courtesy of ABB looks at How Digital Modernization is Impacting Physical Modular Infrastructure.
Pre-configured physical infrastructures are flexible solutions for data center leaders need to find ways to be creative, improve customers’ deployment speed and reduce overall time to market. A DCF special report courtesy of Panduit looks at how pre-configured cloud solutions facilitate the speed of deployment without sacrificing the ability to tweak according to customer needs.
