Latest generation high density and variable density IT equipment create conditions that traditional data center cooling was never intended to address, resulting in cooling systems that are oversized, inefficient, and unpredictable. Room, row, and rack-based cooling methods have been developed to address these problems. This paper describes these improved cooling methods and provides guidance on when to use each type for most next generation data centers.
Implementing prefabricated modular data centers results in well-understood benefits including speed of deployment, predictability, scalability, and lifecycle cost. The process of deploying them – from designing the data center, to preparing the site, to procuring the equipment, to installation – is quite different than that of a traditional data center. This paper presents practical considerations, guidance, and results that a data center manager should expect from such a deployment.
While enterprises continue to own and operate in-house datacenters, their use of colocation and other outsourcing services is growing fast. Demand for colocation and wholesale datacenters, with their readily available space and power, their professional operations teams and, increasingly, their rich connectivity and value-added offerings, has never been stronger. 451 Research forecasts that the operational square footage of the global colocation and wholesale sector will grow at a healthy 7% CAGR from 2017 to 2020.
Colocation providers are dealing with market forces that represent both great opportunity and significant challenge – in some cases from the same development. Providers have to deal with an ever-changing set of buyers, with CFOs and COOs playing an increased role in the decision-making. And they need to address emerging trends such as the Internet of Things and cloud computing, which can have both a positive and negative impact on their businesses.
To win the colocation race you need to be faster, reliable, innovative and efficient –all while making smarter design choices that will ensure positive returns. Customers are demanding 100% uptime and always-on connectivity –be it small enterprises to large Internet Giants–and colocation providers need to meet these expectations. The growing adoption of prefabricated data centers allows just that. With the undisputed benefits of prefab modules and building components(like speed or quality),colocation providers can manage their business today, and deploy faster in the future.
Chris Crosby, CEO for Compass Datacenters, is well-known for his expertise in the data center industry. From its founding in 2012, Compass’ data center solutions have used prefabricated components like exterior walls and power centers to deliver brandable, dedicated facilities for colocation providers. Prefabrication is the central element of the company’s “Kit of Parts” methodology that delivers customizable data center solutions from the core to the edge. By attending this webinar, colocation providers will:
• understand the flexibility and value delivered via the use of prefabricated construction
• Hear the common misperceptions regarding prefabricated modules and data center components
• learn how prefabricated solutions can provide more revenue generation capability than competing alternatives
• know what key things to consider when evaluating prefabricated data center design
Attracting Investors Webinar: With more than $18 billion in M&A activity in the first half of last year alone, the colocation industry is riding the bubble of rapid growth. Colocation data center providers are being evaluated by a wide range of investors, with varying experience and perspectives. Understanding the evaluation criteria is a critical competency for attracting the right type of investor and investment to your colocation business. Steve Wallage, Managing Director of Broad Group Consulting, has led more than 30 due diligence projects and will discuss specific areas of focus including assessment of financials, management, customers, business plan, competitive positioning and future strategy and exit.
By attending this presentation colocation providers will:
• Hear how investors are assessing colocation providers
• Understand different types of investor strategy and positioning
• Explore actual case studies –success stories as well as examples where investors walked away
• Walk away with a greater understanding of how to not only attract investment, but the right type of investor to propel their business growth

In recent years, Europe has seen a real boost in the building of renewable generation capacity. Germany is a notable example of a country with significant growth in renewables. As shown in Figure 1 below, since 2000, the average annual growth of installed capacity in Germany has been more than 15 percent, reaching 18-20 percent between 2009 and 2010. For the most part, favorable conditions for the development of renewables have been caused by support schemes, previously based on feed-in-tariffs and competitive auctions. Now the country has reached a point where renewables account for around 53 percent of installed capacity and around 36 percent share in total electricity demand, already exceeding the 2020 target of 35 percent.

Globally, payments are going digital—whether they are cash moving to cards, QR codes at point of sale (POS), purchases moving from physical to online stores with electronic forms of payment, or payments becoming seamless with in-app experiences. This phenomenon is not new, but does appear to be accelerating.
This increased speed of adoption is driven by multiple factors, including an abundance of new electronic payment methods—many of which are layered on top of existing payment methods— focused on convenience, speed and the overall consumer experience.

The scalability of its EP-LAN lets MMC Corp seize new opportunities without adding infrastructure. For example, Scales and Trusler are looking at virtual desktops or virtual desktop image [VDI] files for some offices and even job sites. “We’ll probably have to scale some bandwidth internally for that,” Trusler notes, “but if we do the VDI internally or we do it with an external third party, it doesn’t really matter… because we can get them on that EP-LAN network and we can get the bandwidth that we need… quickly.”
EP-LAN is scalable. In most cases, adding additional services at a specific customer location can easily be turned up by Spectrum Enterprise remotely. Choosing a fiber EP-LAN over MPLS not only met the challenge to connect MMC Corp locations: it created an IT platform that continues to scale to support rapid expansion and innovation.

As organizations prioritize digital transformation initiatives, many are finding that legacy
networks are holding them back. To support new business models, cloud adoption, and an
explosion in connected devices, modern networks must support interoperability across data
centers, multiple clouds, branch locations, and edge devices. Applications now run at every
point on this spectrum, and they are critical to businesses’ ability to win in hypercompetitive
marketplaces. Yet, even as business success has become more dependent on
this new architecture, and the amount of data flowing across connections has increased,
many organizations still lack a unified approach to management, automation, and security.
