First thing up today is the video tour of the new HP Wynyard data center. Lots of great ideas here, one questionable one. The idea of using light colored cabinets to reduce the requirement for lighting is a great one that gets ignored commonly and the beautifully neat overhead cable racks make working on cabling a snap. The questionable is the cold air flow. Why expend extra energy pumping the air in the opposite direction it naturally wants to go?
Most unfortunate headline of the week: “Could Tiger Woods render networks impotent today?“. I have no idea what I could possibly add to that one.
Call or email me or visit the SwiftWater Telecom web site for great green data center and cloud computing services minus the hype.
