      A group of activists from a coalition of environmental, privacy and anti-spying organizations flew a blimp over the NSA’s massive Utah Data Center in protest over allegations of domestic spying. “It’s not often that you can get — literally — over the NSA,” Parker Higgins, an activist with the Electronic Frontier Foundation, told FOX 13 on Friday.

      Is the Cloud disrupting the Data Center Ecosystem? Can you see the changes

      This past two months I have done the whirlwind of being in the same cities as Data Center World, Uptime Symposium, 7x24 Exchange, Data Center Dynamics and Gigaom Structure.  If you go back 5 years ago only one of these conferences was about the Cloud - Gigaom Structure.  Werner Vogel has been presenting since 2006. Back in 2008 Microsoft presented its Container Data Center solution at Gigaom Structure.

    5. 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.”

    6. 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.
