      Top 5 Data Center Stories, Week of April 18th

      For your weekend reading, we present a recap of five noteworthy stories that appeared on Data Center Knowledge this past week. CenturyLink Uses Natural Gas to Power Data Center – Fuel cells that run on natural gas continue to make their way into the data center market. What the Words “Converged Infrastructure” Mean Today – Where does storage play a role? When is it only compute? What about cloud computing and integration? What are some actual use cases behind these kinds of technologies?

    4. Microsoft gets data centres powered up for big UPS turn-off

      Microsoft gets data centres powered up for big UPS turn-off

      The problem with data centres is that you have to plug them in. Or to put it another way, the problem with data centres is that they draw their power from a national grid and this ultimately narrows the cost efficiency structure under which they can operate. Conspicuously creaky and ageing grid networks in (even) advanced first-world nations don’t make matters any better.

      How Microsoft Got Rid of the Big Data Center UPS

      Big uninterruptible power supply cabinets and rows of batteries that are similar in size to the ones under the hood of your car have been an unquestioned data center mainstay for years. This infrastructure is what ensures servers keep running between the time the utility power feed goes down and backup generators get a chance to start and stabilize.

      Fuel cells power systems on the rise

      Financial services provider Morgan Stanley opened a 250 kWe fuel cell on-site power system at its headquarters building in Purchase, New York last month. The solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) device from Bloom Energy is supplying both baseload power and a grid-independent supply to parts of the building’s critical loads.

    7. Capturing Carbon as a Byproduct of Running a Fuel Cell

      Capturing Carbon as a Byproduct of Running a Fuel Cell

      The more that engineers look, the more they find unexpected ways to capture carbon dioxide, a gas that scientists say threatens global climate stability. Until now, most efforts to capture carbon have been expensive, in dollars and in energy. A coal-fired power plant that grabbed carbon before it escaped into the atmosphere would lose an enormous portion of its energy output in the process.

    9. Phoenix Utility to Pilot Data Center Without Generator

      Phoenix Utility to Pilot Data Center Without Generator

      There is only so many ways to build a data center without a generator or some other kind of backup power source and still have the level of reliability companies that rely on their applications to stay up around the clock need. One way is to feed the data center power directly from more reliable parts of the grid. BaseLayer, the company in the process of being spun out of the Phoenix-based data center provider IO, has partnered with Phoenix-area public utility Salt River Project to attempt just that.
