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.
Switch has updated its MOD Data Center Design to package its innovations in a smaller form factor, allowing it to expand beyond hyperscale projects to enterprise, edge and smart cities infrastructure.
This white paper examines and compares three data center containment systems and demonstrates that there are important differences to consider that distinguish one system over the others. It will help you to determine the best containment option for your data center requirements and your business goals. To learn more download this white paper.
This white paper examines how implementing a complete rack containment system contributes to overall reduced cooling system energy costs in the data center and prepares your site for an anticipated increase in rack density. Download now to learn more.
The rising cost of energy and pressure for facilities to become more efficient is quickly driving data centers to adapt solutions to better manage and plan for their day to day operations. A successful DCIM solution deployment allows a manager to understand, manage and optimize the myriad amounts of data under their control. To learn more about successful DCIM solutions and how to deploy them download this white paper.
Will artificial intelligence and robotics manage the data centers of the future? At DCD Webscale, LitBit and Wave2Wave discussed new AI products to streamline data center management and address the industry’s staffing challenges.
The promise of automation looms large over many industries in 2017. In this week’s Voices of the Industry, Jeff Klaus, GM of Data Center Software Solutions at Intel DCM, explores where to look for automation opportunities in the data center.
Versatility allows Ascent to be opportunistic as it expands its data center business, tailoring its approach to a particular facility or geographic market.
The facility tour is a a staple of the data center business. The RagingWire CA3 facility in Sacramento represents perhaps the ultimate example of a data center optimized around customer tours.
By implementing an effective airflow containment strategy, it is possible to see optimized cooling system efficiency, improved Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) and additional equipment capacity, all without having to expand a data center facility’s footprint. Ward Patton, Critical Environment Specialist at Simplex Isolation Systems, unpacks five key considerations for airflow containment design.
