The pressure on data centers to deliver reliable performance while also being cost-effective and environmentally friendly is growing at a seemingly exponential rate. (Learn more about the sustainable data centers.)
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 Industrial Data Center Age is not only here – it’s going to move quickly.
Paul Schlattman points out that in this new era hyperscale owners will want to examine their total cost of ownership (TCO) in his article “The Industrial Age of Hyperscale” for Mission Critical magazine. He explains three critical components to developing a meaningful hyperscale TCO: site selection, developing a hyperscale prototype and development/operations.
