For businesses in this technology-driven economy, one of two things is true: you need to expand your data center now, or you need to plan for the time when you do. And build-to-suit data centers can be more cost-effective and future-proof than other expansion solutions. Download the new white paper from Stream Data Centers to learn how build-to-suit data centers optimize your operations today and position you for growth.
In the wake of our growing digital economy and a data center industry that’s continually challenged with staying ahead of the customers’ IT roadmaps, different end-users have emerged to distinguish themselves with varying data center requirements. The evolving challenge, however, is how to efficiently build data centers for various types of users. The new white paper from Stream Data Centers explores the differences between enterprise users and cloud providers as two examples of data center users who present contrasting challenges in design and construction requirements.
This is the final post in a four-part series from Cyxtera that explores crucial elements to consider before choosing a colocation provider. This post focuses on what support services full-service colocation providers should provide for their clients.
How do data center operators design and build for a varying array of different users and insure they are deploying the right product type to maximize their success? In this edition of Voices of the Industry, Chris Kincaid, Senior Vice President of Design & Construction at Stream Data Centers, explores some of the biggest design and construction challenges for today’s data center developers, and how to tackle them.
In 2017, Microsoft also focused on hyperscale hardware, continuing its innovation with FPGAs and GPUs to speed its networking and machine learning services, while test-driving ARM cloud servers.
IT needs are evolving and specifying the changes we need to make to our most critical data center services. This is the second entry in a Data Center Frontier series that explores how to create complete resiliency and compliance for mission critical data centers.
There is no question that the data center market is booming. And client expectations are changing as well. Brian Mattson, Vice President of Construction at RagingWire Data Centers, analyzes how to accelerate the pace of modern data center construction while staying under budget and improving quality.
Data centers are becoming more complex, and this is making white space management even harder for data center managers. Integrating the data center cabinet with hardware and software into a single platform can help data center managers truly gain visibility and understanding of the different dynamics within the data center to make informed decisions. A new white paper from Chatsworth Products (CPI) explores the key elements of a successful data center cabinet ecosystem and how to create your own.
From the vantage point inside today’s datacenter it’s a safe bet that the pace of change in datacenters will accelerate over the next decade and beyond. Raritan asked the datacenter experts at 451 Research to examine the forces of change over the next decade so that they could share predictions about new datacenter types, and to suggest ways to get ready for the future.
At some point, every owner or general contractor operating in the mission critical space has been asked about their dollars per megawatt ($/MW) for a particular construction build. Under the right circumstances and in the right environment, a low $/MW ratio can be the measuring stick for success. However, every data center is different, and it is important to remember that $/MW is not the only factor that determines the quality, efficiency and cost of a data center build. Download this white paper to learn more about the real cost of a data center build.
