TMGcore has launched a modular data center platform that uses robots to swap high-density servers immersed in coolant fluid. The OTTO platform is the most ambitious bid yet for a “lights out ” autonomous data center.
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.
How can understanding power consumption lead to a more efficient data center? The team at Raritan aims to answer that very question in a new report that explores power monitoring and metering in data centers.
The impact of data center outages cannot be underestimated. Stream Data Centers Engineering Director Kevin Rosen explores ways to ensure data center resilience.
Veteran data center innovator Scott Noteboom has joined immersion cooling startup Submer as Chief Technology Officer. Noteboom says Submer’s technology can evolve as a platform for new machine-optimized data center designs.
The Obama administration launched the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative (FDCCI) in 2010 as part of an ambitious effort to push the federal government to modernize its aging data centers, IT systems and cyber practices. Despite the slow and often uneven progress toward modernization, realizing the performance, security and savings goals that have been set in the government IT space is possible. This paper from Vertiv explores what it will require to bring the U.S. government fully into the 21st century.
The speed of disruption and the current data-surge cycle continues to demand transformation in the data-center industry. Download this white paper from Vertiv that addresses those questions and provides clarity on the specific benefits that PFM data centers can offer over traditional construction techniques — benefits that could eventually see PFM shift from being an alternative and disruptive technology to becoming the default option for new data center capacity in the future.
Data center managers are continuously faced with the challenge of providing increased levels of power in subsequently reduced areas of space. Download the new white paper from Raritan that addresses how power monitoring solutions can be effectively used to meet these demands, while simultaneously delivering an IT environment that is able to achieve evolving business, usage, regulatory, and financial goals.
RagingWire/NTT is creating a base isolation system to provide an extra layer of earthquake protection for its Santa Clara data center. A primer on base isolation, how it works, and why these systems are rare at U.S. data centers.
Modern data center managers are under constant pressure to do more with less while simultaneously being tasked with balancing data center uptime and optimizing for efficiency and capacity utilization. Herman Chan, President of Sunbird Software, offers readers 10 KPIs to track if your goal is improving data center health and efficiency.
Are customer office space and sustainable design differentiators in a data center? Vantage Data Centers thinks so, offering spacious, sunlit break rooms, and sustainability features that combine solar and wind power, and EV charging stations.
