    2. Data Centre Developments Will Focus On The Building

      Data Centre Developments Will Focus On The Building
      Two weeks ago, my suggestion that we build data centres from straw was not entirely serious. But the coverage last week of Facebooks new project in Sweden proves one thing: it is time we thought carefully about the buildings that house our tech. Facebook has embarked on a second data centre at Lulea. The first one is only just open, and Facebook says it has a PUE of 1.05 ...

    3. Death match in Unix servers by Peter Judge

      Death match in Unix servers by Peter Judge
      The Unix server market may be in decline, but theres still enough value there for the big, seasoned pros to strut their stuff like veteran wrestlers. The latest bout saw announcements from all the big players - HP, IBM, and Oracle. But the Unix market is in terminal decline - IDC found the last quarter of 2013 had shrunk more than 30 percent from the same period of 2012. But the quarterly ...

    4. Let's Build A Data Centre From Straw!

      Let's Build A Data Centre From Straw!
      Dell packs its devices in wheat straw. Thats certainly greener than using polystyrene or virgin wood pulp, But what else could we do with the material? How about a data centre built from straw? For small items, the amount of energy and materials consumed in the packaging can be significant, even compared to the device itself. So its good to see Dell packing and shipping its tablets and laptops in ...

    5. Dell builds boxes from straw - what about data centers? by Peter Judge

      Dell builds boxes from straw - what about data centers? by Peter Judge
      Dell is now packing its smaller devices in wheat straw. That might seem irrelevant to data centers - but other people are working on making whole buildings that way. Its worth remembering that Green IT extends beyond the hardware to the boxes it comes in. Its more concern for smaller devices and consumer products, where packing and transportation can account for a major part of the environmental impact of the device.

    6. Biomass power will fuel Scotland's largest data center by Peter Judge

      Biomass power will fuel Scotland's largest data center by Peter Judge
      Use locally generated power, and use more renewables - and your data center will be attractive to users, more reliable and have a lower carbon footprint. Ive heard that often - but this week, I got news of what could well be Britains first all-renewable data center using local power. Of course, its in Scotland, so it will only be in Britain if the referendum on Scottish independence from the United Kingdom ...

    7. Two-phase cooling bubbles to the surface by Peter Judge

      Two-phase cooling bubbles to the surface  by Peter Judge
      Lets take it as read that liquid cooling is better than air cooling. But can you afford it, and is it mature enough yet? Liquid cooling definitely wins on the energy budget. Liquid conducts away heat better, and a well designed system doesnt need much pumping, compared with the amount of energy required to drive fans and air-conditioning systems to remove heat.

    8. There is no magic metric for data center efficiency by Peter Judge

      There is no magic metric for data center efficiency by Peter Judge
      Its good to see that Facebook has open-sourced its dashboards for data center efficiency, so anyone can show the public how well their data center is doing - but it is happening while the global industry is struggling to find better measurements than the ones Facebook is using. PUE (power usage effectiveness) and WUE (water usage effectiveness), as displayed in Facebooks dashboards, were developed by the Green Grid as simple measures ...
