Tuesday data center tidbits:unclear on the concept, micro PUE jumps the shark

First up today is this piece about the top 10 data center annoyances. Now, I can certainly agree with a complaint about bad lighting levels and lousy housekeeping, but crabbing because you’re uncomfortable working in the hot aisle misses the point. The hot aisle works just fine for the servers and that’s why it’s there, not for your comfort, so suck it up.

Data center quote of the week, from this article on “micro PUE”:

“Inventing the term ‘Micro PUE’ seems to me to be an extreme case of riding the PUE bandwagon a little too far …”

More like a LOT too far.
