      Maryland Lawmakers push to cut electricity and water to the NSA's data center

      The National Security Agency’s headquarters in Ft. Meade, Md., will go dark if a cohort of Maryland lawmakers has its way. Eight Republicans in the 141-member Maryland House of Delegates introduced legislation Thursday that would deny the electronic spy agency “material support, participation or assistance in any form” from the state, its political subdivisions or companies with state contracts.

    2. One Simple Reason why Open Compute Project works, An Executive Visionary - Frank Frankovsky

      When you think of the technical companies in our industry you can’t help, but think of the founders - Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Larry Ellison, Larry and Sergey, Zuckerberg, etc. Organizations that are trying to drive change in the industry that host conferences can be viewed in the same way.  The successful ones have founders as key figures.  Seybold Conferences worked because of Jonathan Seybold.  GigaOm works because of Om Malik.  Tim O’Reilly.

      Pssst, M2M is hot, and the smart data center industry guys are at leading edge

      I was at Wavefront Wireless Summit and the hot topic is M2M. M2M is machine to machine. M2M can include the case of industrial instrumentation - comprising a device (such as a sensor or meter) to capture an event (such as temperature, inventory level, etc. ) that is relayed through a network(wireless, wired or hybrid) to an application (software program) that translates the captured event into meaningful information (for example, items need to be restocked).

      Microsoft Windows Azure makes move Amazon Web Services refuses to make, Tell us what Server Hardware is used in the Cloud

      Some people believe the cloud is great and solve all problems.  But, those who don’t believe the hype want to know more about the data center and the hardware in the cloud.  When AWS had outages in 2012, Digital Realty Trust was forced to make it clear that the AWS outages due to power problems were not in their facilities.

    7. Oracle gets ready to compete against AWS

      I had a nice Holiday break with no landline, cell coverage, internet access, or broadcast TV from Dec 26 - Dec 31.  I was sick with a bad cold for 3 days of bed rest and I only had a kindle and saved movies to pass the time.  It was a forced withdrawal which actually was good medicine in itself.

      One of the things I missed is this post by my GigaOm friend Barb Darrow on Oracle’s intent to make 2014 a year to compete against AWS.

    8. FedEx's Data Center is humming at Xmas

      Here is a video on FedEx’s latest data center in Colorado Springs.

      The news site is here.

      "Saving money and saving resources, they go hand in hand. If it's operating efficiently and sustainability, then we've hit the bulls eye," according to Mitch Jackson, VP of Environmental Affairs for FedEx. That's a very important target, when managing tens of millions of packages a day, and billions of pieces of information.

    9. Apple's 1 billion Reno Data Center has 1/66th built, $14.85 mil tax assessment

      The media was all over Apple’s $1 bil data center in Reno. Apple’s largest project in the area, however, is its new $1 billion iCloud data center that includes both a large, rural parcel of land within the nearby Reno Technology Park and plans to build new supporting facilities on the edge of downtown. I don’t know about you, but my friends had a good laugh at speculation that Apple was building 1 billion worth of data centers in Reno.

    10. Here's a bit odd point, why is it inevitable Google build a data center in Hong Kong?

      Here's a bit odd point, why is it inevitable Google build a data center in Hong Kong?

      The point made is that Google will be in every country, so they will return to Hong Kong. And because high-speed service has been a priority for Google product managers over the years, it’s not hard to imagine that one day a Google data center could be located in every country, or every other country. Google’s got the money and the demand, so while a Hong Kong data center might be off the roadmap for the immediate future, it will probably open someday.

      A good strategy to go for three data centers in a region, Google folds HK, keeps Singapore and Taiwan

      Google announced data centers in HK, Singapore and Taiwan 2 years ago.  Three is a good number when you want to create a high availability service, because sometimes the third has problems.  And in Google’s case they confirmed they will not open up Hong Kong reported in WSJ.

    12. IBM comments on buying Softlayer

      GigaOm’s Derrick Harris has a post on IBM and the acquisition of Softlayer.

      “[W]e bought a company. … I’ve bought 120 companies,” Mills said matter of factly, noting that in this case IBM realized it wasn’t capturing certain segments of the cloud market and wasn’t delivering certain capabilities that customers wanted. You can either build those capabilities or buy them, he added, and “at the end of the day you run out of money [to build everything].”
