Datacentre design and facilities: What you need to know

Uptime, availability and performance are three critical considerations for any datacentre operator, which is why – when it comes to designing their facilities – so many rely on tried and trusted approaches.

But pursuing a “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” strategy within the datacentre only gets you so far, which is why it is so important to ensure operators keep an open mind about adopting new technologies and design best practice to maximise the performance and efficiency of their sites.

For instance, while fresh air-cooling is the norm for many datacentres, there are emerging use cases for expanding the use of liquid cooling within server farms to make it easier to regulate the temperature of kit carrying out far more compute-intensive tasks.

In this e-guide, we take a look at some of the latest thinking and trends around datacentre design, while shining a light on the differing approaches organisations take to ensure their server farms remain up and running, and can withstand all the compute demands expected of them.

  • CW Middle East ezine January 2019

    The small island state of Bahrain is trying to get one step ahead in a bid to become a fintech hub in the region. The kingdom recently established Bahrain Fintech Bay (BFB), which bills itself as a one-stop shop for fledgling fintech companies. This is not its first fintech commitment. Back in 2017, the Central Bank of Bahrain (CBB) announced regulations to enable the creation of an environment where fintech firms can test out their products and services.

    Bahrain is small but it gives companies access to the Gulf Cooperation Council’s political and economic group, which comprises BahrainKuwaitOmanQatarSaudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

    Computer Weekly attended an event in Bahrain and found out more, which is featured in this issue.

    Meanwhile, on the subject of diversification, read more about the pioneering smart city developments going on in Dubai. The city is setting itself up as a global leader in developing the cities of the future.

    The latest announcement by the city’s Smart Dubai Office revealed it is developing a digital ID and digital signature, known as UAE Pass, which is being touted as one of the foundations that any city needs to transform.

  • CW Nordics February 2019

    According to a report, traditional businesses that are transforming how they operate are fuelling digitisation more than the tech disruptors. The Nordic region is known for its rich tech startup ecosystems, but also has a strong heritage in traditional industries, such as heavy engineering, logistics and manufacturing.

    This is the perfect environment for digital transformation, with startups and traditional businesses able to learn from each other. But despite this, there is work to do. A report by IDC said Nordic companies are lagging behind their global peers, especially the US, when it comes to digital transformation.

    One area where Nordic countries could not be accused of lagging behind is the digitisation of money. A recent study by the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco found that the use of cash continues to increase in the world’s economies apart from in the Nordic countries Norway and Sweden. 

    Read in this issue how Sweden’s central bank is testing out digital currency. Riksbank has rolled out plans to test the e-krona, and politicians in Sweden have presented a plan to make the country the world’s first cashless society by 2030.
