Feb 3, 2020

DULLES, VA — Some research analysts characterize the last five years of data center industry development as largely focused on growth and technological cloud deployment. This will likely remain the focus globally, with Europe and Asia growing faster than North America. However, as the North American market matures, business optimization is a key strategic focus […] more

The Industrial Age of Hyperscale: The Three-Legged Stool of Getting to Today’s Hyperscale TCO | Guest post by Paul Schlattman

Jan 31, 2020

Within a short time frame, hyperscale data centers have gone from being designed with a typical wholesale data center layout to industrial-level design. The design aspects of high-end interiors and concrete hardening are features long gone, while the hyperscale client focuses now exclusively on speed-to-market and cost. Over the last decade, wholesale data center providers […] more

SEATTLE, WA — Northern Virginia continues to lead the country in data center absorption. The first part of 2019 saw 76.1 MW of absorption in the region. But surprisingly, the Pacific Northwest region follows that, more than doubling their year-over-year absorption for a total of 25.3 MW in the same time period. That’s why CAPRE […] more

14 Days of Back-Up Fuel? Mission Critical is Rethinking Resiliency in Light of Changing Climate & Conditions

Jan 30, 2020

AUSTIN, TX — Architecture, Design and Engineering are three essential ingredients of any data center recipe, but it’s never as simple as assuming you won’t need to look elsewhere for other elements that would be essential to success. That’s why “Building Future-Proof and Resilient Facilities in Increasingly Unstable Times” was a key panel at CAPRE’s […] more
