    1. What the New California Title 24 Requirements Mean for Your Data Center

      What the New California Title 24 Requirements Mean for Your Data Center

      The latest 2013 revision of the California Energy Code (Title 24 of the CA Code of Regulations, Part 6) contains implications for the way we cool data centers, server rooms, MDFs, IDFs, and just about every other computer room in California. These new regulations have produced a significant amount of speculation, confusion and misinformation in the marketplace as they apply to data center cooling.

      Small Businesses Should and Can Be Sustainable

      The upcoming 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference that will be held in Paris in December is often called in the media “our last chance” to change things. It is clear now that the current levels of commitment to reduce greenhouse gases emissions, as proposed by the Kyoto Treaty, are insufficient to achieve the goal of limiting the temperature increase. A lot depends on the outcome of the conference; however, governments are slow to reach agreements and implement them.

      New Technologies And Strategies To Enhance Data Center Efficiency

      As the most progressive data center in the Rocky Mountain region, and a leader in our industry, Fortrust saw an opportunity to provide an outstanding example of how a data center should operate and contribute to a sustainable environment. Together as an organization, it created the “Fortrust Sustainability (Green) Initiative” in 2011, which was a strategic plan to reduce our energy consumption and carbon footprint while encouraging our employees, customers, vendors and partners to join us in our efforts to improve our impact on the planet as well as the industry and our community. In this white paper, we explore ...

      Project Seeks to Combine Sustainable Fish Farm and Data Center

      An organization called the Foundry Project has a plan for an 8-acre brownfield in Cleveland in which data center waste heat would be reused to provide heat for an aquaculture farm. It’s still in early stages, but ideally the project would involve a bunker-style data center piping exhaust heat to warm water for a sustainable sea bass fish farm onsite.

      The Accelerating Evolution Of Data Center Technology

      Data centers have never been more important to the private and public sectors as they are today, with organizations demanding highly efficient, cost-effective, low-latency and scalable solutions for their storage and access needs. In virtually any major technology trend that gains this type of traction, accelerating demand will directly translate to quicker transformations and innovations among competing providers, which helps to drive the positive impact of the product higher for users.

      Greenpeace Nitpicks Data Center Companies

      Like so many aspects of industry, energy consumption is an increasingly politicized part of doing business—particularly in the case of data center operation and other IT functions. A recent Greenpeace report rags on a number of big names in the data center space, assigning each a series of “grades” on their energy policies. But although the environmental group has at least some laudable goals, it ignores the bigger energy picture.

      The Promises, Politics, Challenges, and Cost Justification – Part 1

      The advent of DCIM as a term originated not long after The Green Grid introduced its now widely recognized Power Usage Effectiveness “PUE” metric in 2007. A substantial percentage of early DCIM offerings were primarily marketed as PUE dashboards in order to gain better acceptance and recognition of the drive to measure and improve energy efficiency in the data center facility.

      Internal Carbon Fees Fund Data Center Energy Innovation at Microsoft

      When it committed to 100 percent carbon-neutral operations in 2012, Microsoft started the unusual practice of charging each of its internal departments fees for the amount of greenhouse-gas emissions they are responsible for. Today, three years later, the company claims that the strategy works.
