A new white paper, by Chatsworth Products (CPI) and Innovative Research Inc. (IRI), provides an overview of the key steps for optimizing the cooling performance of air-cooled data centers. This includes employing a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modeling software tool for analysis and exercising airflow management best practices that will help data center managers understand the what and how of optimizing airflow and, consequently, cooling performance.
Marc Cram, Director of Sales for Server Technology, highlights what the role of PDU design means for mission critical uptime in today’s data centers.
Blake Weaver, Data Center Specialist at ProLift Rigging, explores what it takes to win with modular construction in the speed to market race.
A new report from Stream Data Centers highlights how the data industry company and and leaders of one of the leaders of one of the nation’s larger commercial banks joined forces as part of a comprehensive data center consolidation plan and ascertained the need for a new core build-to-suit data center that would complement its primary Tier IV data center and execute the project.
Deploying edge computing infrastructure can be challenging for end users, who must adapt their models and processes for a smaller, denser environment to process more services and user data. There are three common challenges reported by end users working with edge designs: Defining the use case, inexperience with edge deployments and data management concerns.
Like most industries, the data center industry has evolved, especially in recent years. While basic data center design hasn’t changed much, some aspects of it have greatly improved. Alex Sharp, Global Head of Design and Construction at Iron Mountain, takes a look at data centers of the future.
Phill Lawson-Shanks, CIO and Sustainability Committee Chair at Aligned Energy hones in on sustainable data centers, and what a “new breed” of data centers focused on energy efficiency will look like.
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.
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.
