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.
Amazon Web Services has begun designing its own rack-level Micro UPS units for its data centers, eliminating a centralized UPS in a move that will dramatically improve the power efficiency of its cloud computing operations.
Chris Williams, Business Development Manager at Emcor Enclosures discusses the positive impact managers and operators will see by selecting a well-designed high quality cage as an additional layer of physical security for their data center, regardless of size or scale.
What does edge computing infrastructure look like? Here’s a video of some of the leading designs from players in the emerging market for edge data centers, plus links to our DCF social channels for images and video.
The growing adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) poses challenges for data center design, as high-density racks of GPUs require low-latency access to massive datasets, including some in the cloud.
Wholesale data center developer Prime Data Centers will enter the Silicon Valley market with a project in Santa Clara, the company said this week.
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.
