When complete, the Alligned Ashburn 26-acre 180 MW master-planned data center campus will offer over 1 mm sq. ft. of space. Download a new case study that explores how Aligned constructed a 368,755 square-foot data center and built out the first fully-commissioned 12 MW of data center space, expandable to 60 MW, in less than six months.
The demand for data center facilities has been high over the last several years. That demand, and continued growth in the industry, by all indications, will continue for some time. Rob Dean, the VP of Design and Construction at CoreSite, who has been working on construction projects for nearly 15 years, walks readers through the process of building and maintaining a data center in today’s market.
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.
This CAPRE summit will bring together the most innovative construction, design and engineering firms for important discussion, debate and networking.
As big data continues to explode, many enterprises have turned to colocation data centers. Among other factors, leasing—as opposed to building or buying a new data center—reduces upfront costs. A new report from Sabey Data Centers explores how a modular data center design can provide the on-demand scaling capabilities enterprises want with the control, reliability and cost-effectiveness they need.
Many organizations have turned to colocation data centers to help manage capacity requirements more effectively. For starters, leasing—as opposed to building or buying a new data center— reduces upfront costs. Download the new report from Sabey Data Centers that explores how a modular data center design may be the next horizon of colocation technology.
DCD>San Francisco brings together the unique ecosystem that has been developed to support the huge investments being made into digital infrastructure.
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 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.
A new focus on sustainability, efficiency and waste reduction opens up a wealth of opportunities to save money and use reusability to make key decisions around future data center designs, operations and processes. Download the full report, “Flexibility and Sustainability for the Dynamic Data Center,” courtesy of Server Technology, to learn more about the roles that flexibility and reusability will play going forward in making decisions around engineering future data center designs.
