Data center design and manufacturing is accelerating rapidly to keep up with current IT demands. Typically cost prohibitive, traditional brick and mortar data centers require that physical locations be based on proximity to available power grids, telecommunications infrastructure, networking services, and transportation lines. Today, however, data centers are being designed to be more scalable and modular, allowing them to be dispersed in wider geographical regions, placing them closer to users and further from networks.Read More

Pokémon Go has only been live for a month, and it’s already taken over. It’s crossed all demographics and spread like wildfire. You probably can’t drive or walk through your neighborhood in the evening or pass by a park without seeing people playing. But what happens when you finally find that elusive Pokémon, only to have the game shut down and ruin your chance at capturing him?

On January 29th, 2016, ASHRAE released the standard 90.4P, Energy Standard for Data Centers for the third public review. The most interesting, and let’s say controversial part of this standard, is that it eliminates the PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) metric, of which the first release on this standard found to be of utmost importance. Below, one of our Mechanical Engineers, Robin Gilbert, gives his take on the third release – the good, the bad, the unusual.
