      Renewable energy: National noise vs. local action

      Last week the leaders of North America announced Yet Another Grand Plan (YAGP) to reduce carbon emissions. Sounds great, but data centers need to focus on the local if they want to tap into clean energy. National leaders can set the tone, but more often than not, policy makers at the local, city and state level are setting the stage (or blocking the runway) for increased access to renewable power.

      Explosion of Research Data Drives “Tipping Point” for IT Facilities

      The scientific community explores the world around it, whether large or small. From the cosmos and its origins to things smaller than the human eye can perceive, such as cells and the human genome. Both represent the ends of the spectrum of scientific inquiry, and now more than ever, both extremes (and many inquiries in between) require more and more scientific computing and storage.
