Friday data center tidbits: the cloud industrial revolution and more.


First up today is a piece likening the move to cloud computing to the change from steam power to electricity. It sure is, complete with the same re-occurring bunch of Luddites trying to derail it. Funny how history repeats itself.

Next up is the piece about saving money by building multiple data center tiers in the same facility. First off, I don’t know how this qualifies as “greening” the data center. Second, avoiding under-building or over-building the data center to the needs of what’s going in it is news?

Finally, there’s the speculation that Twitter’s new data center will put paid to the Fail Whale. I doubt it, but now there won’t be any guess work to who’s REALLY at fault when it blows up.

Email or call me or visit the SwiftWater Telecom web site for cloud computing services.
