Monday data center tidbits.


First up on the list today is a story about the University of Illinois building a new supercomputer data center with no power backup. Apparently they consider their power grid to be super reliable so they don’t need power backup. Good luck with that one.

Next up is the story that the EPA has announced the finding that green house gases endanger the public health. If you’re not actively moving to get your data center greened, you better get your keister in gear. Oh, and if you’re still running a massive water sucking cooling system, better look for a replacement, the EPA points to serious upcoming water availability problems too.
