Where do you go after you jump the shark? Looking for another one to jump, of course! The stories about HP’s Wynyard data center have gone from “wind cooled” to “glacial wind cooled” to “wind powered“. Next thing you know, it will be leaping tall buildings in a single bound and rescuing damsels from dragons.
Second on the day comes from the Twitter stream, the story about a certain as yet not named data center having an accidental discharge of the fire suppression system during inspection. 1) I’d hate to be the one sent the bill for recharging that sucker. 2) Who the heck inspects something like that armed? Data center bozos of the week!
We’re not wind powered and we don’t set the fire system off for the fun of it, but call or email me or visit the SwiftWater Telecom web site for green data center and cloud computing services minus the hype.
