Take a Closer Look at the Modular Data Center Solutions
Throughout October the TELEHOUSE America team has been exploring live, operational modular data center solutions. TELEHOUSE's Modular Datacenter (MDC) solution goes beyond the containerized platforms that are famous within the modular space. TELEHOUSE's Modular Datacenter is completely customizable and sized to the customer's needs.
By exploring a fully functioning 24/7 Modular Datacenter (MDC) that is built and operational within 3 months, it is easy to see why this concept is the future of both collocation and self built data centers. Creating a traditional data center based solely on today's business needs will only be challenging to deal with in the future. Forget building a data center and hoping to grow into it, the Modular Datacenter solution allows you to expand, move, or downsize, in parallel with your company's resource management and growth demands. By using these 6 inch thick moveable wall panels, meeting all building codes, that are sealed to be airtight, watertight, bulletproof and weatherproof provides the ultimate flexibility for expanding or relocating anywhere on the globe.
Data Centers Help Store 'Big Data'
What's all the talk about 'big data?' Basically, it refers to the massive size of datasets that, due to the size, become a challenge to work with using typical 'on-hand' database management tools. Big data requires a place to live; and actual storage devices to house it. In a recent article by Data Center Knowledge, Rich Miller points out his key takeaway from the O'Reilly Strata Summit last month is the generation of our society's 'ever-growing ocean of data'. And in response to 'big data', developers are busily working on new applications in order to extract value from it all.
The surge of big data crosses all spectrums - from finance to retail; from government to entertainment, from journalism to non-profits.
Protecting Data Centers from Lightning
Natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornados and earthquakes, can wreak havoc on a business' data communications. Most individuals wouldn't normally think of a regular thunderstorm as a big threat. However, this is often not the case. Lightning, even without a big catostrophic storm can actually inflict quite a bit of damage - causing unforeseen utility outages - even taking out well known companies such as Amazon and Microsoft.
Data centers are designed to withstand power blips and outages with their back up UPS systems and generators. Recently though, two large cloud computing hubs in Dublin, Ireland were severely impacted due to lightning striking a transformer. An explosion ensued and the fire wiped out the generator systems causing a complete power outage. Best efforts were made to restore systems quickly, but some of the power grids were out for up to 48 hours.
