    3. Army says they are shutting more Data Centers than other Federal Agencies

      Army says they are shutting more Data Centers than other Federal Agencies

      Saw this post on Federal Times on the US Army moving data center capacity.  This paragraph makes an interesting claim.“We’re aggressively shutting down data centers. I don’t think there’s anyone in the federal government that is shutting down as many data centers as the Army is,” Krieger said May 6 at the C4ISR & Networks conference in Arlington, Va. “But this is not a data center drill; this is about applications. This is about modernizing, virtualizing and moving.”

    4. Water tips the use of Power in NSA Utah Data Center

      Date Thursday, May 1, 2014 at 2:44PM

      Crawling public records for evidence of data centers being built is common. Another thing you can do is use public records of utility use. It is tough to get the amount of power used in public records, but water use is not considered as confidential. Well, until Salt Lake Tribune reported on the water use of NSA’s Utah Data center.

      Apple's Environmental Leader meets with Data Center Team, Learns Being Green starts with Design

      Some people out there, well many think being Green in a building means being LEED certified. Apple’s data center team has some smart folks and they know there is much more to being green than how many LEED points you can get. GreenBiz has an interview with Apple’s Lisa Jackson and one nice point at the end of the article is on her meeting with the data center design team.

      5 Big Ideas with 5 Big Speakers Discuss Next-Generation DC Infrastructure

      I think this will be the fifth GigaOm Structure I am attending.  People ask if I am going to any of the data center conferences and the only ones I consistently attend are 7x24 and DCD.  Why?  Because I find spending two days at GigaOm Structure are more forward thinking.  I might be a speaker/moderator at the conference, and will be there helping out the staff.

      See 40 years of Wind Power in the USA

      Fast Company has a post showing 40 years of Wind Power in the USA.  Thanks to Google’s investments in wind power, we take it for granted Wind Power is a renewable energy source for data centers.

      We've gone from one small collection of turbines in 1975 to nearly 1,000 wind farms--capable of generating enough electricity for 15 million homes.

    10. Psst, Google's Data Center Capacity is growing more than most think

      Psst, Google's Data Center Capacity is growing more than most think

      The data center growth of Google is well documented and tracked. From looking at the numbers Google is doubling its infrastructure spending over the past year. Obvious assumption then is a doubling of capacity. I made this incorrect assumption. I am off to SF tomorrow, and I’ll be looking for data to confirm my new assumption of how much new capacity Google is adding.

    11. 5 details about Google's Cloud

      5 details about Google's Cloud

      Here is a post on GigaOm on 5 things your probably didn’t know about Google’s cloud. Here is one. In 2012 Google released impressive internal photos of their data center facilities and mapped them out. However, the Compute Engine Zones are very non-specific, e.g. “europe-west1-a”. Indeed, they have only two geographical regions (Europe West and US Central) compared to Amazon’s nine. In addition to its 13 locations, SoftLayer has announced 15 new data centers just for this year.

      Many of you are familiar with Lean Construction, and I bet you run into people like I do who don’t know what Lean Construction is.  Your experience figuring who gets Lean Construction and who doesn’t is anecdotal and hard to gauge.  Thanks to folks at Dassault Systemes and McGraw-Hill a survey was conducted in Sept 2013 to understand the Lean Construction Market.

      Lean Construction Keynote Video by 2 Second Lean's Paul Akers

      I was chatting with Compass Data Center’s Chris Crosby about Lean Construction and we were having a good laugh that the media makes it seem like Lean Construction is something new because Facebook and a few others have seen the light of Lean Construction.  Lean vs. Waste - Simple vs. Complicated.  Chris mentioned the 2 Second Lean book and I went to the website.  The company FastCap which 2 Second Lean’s Paul Akers founded is in Bellingham, WA the same city that my Woodstone Oven is made.
