DatacenterDynamics Magazine – April/May Issue
Powered by people!
When data center services - like Amazon’s S3 - go down, it’s often blamed on “human error.” But what is this “human error”? If an engineer can bring down a cloud service by mistyping a command, maybe the error was made by the humans who designed the system.
This issue, we put the spotlight on the symbiotic relationship between data centers and the humans who design, build and run them. The human factor is now the central issue.
We feature ten of the most beautiful data centers we know - in a showcase preview of candidates for a new prize in this year’s DCD Awards. We aren’t looking just for architectural excellence. We want data centers whose physical features reflect the heart and soul of the people who build them.
A special supplement looks at progress towards software defined data centers (SDDCs) and their development into facilities which are defined by their business needs.
Elsewhere we look at giant spiders - and other menaces to data centers in emerging markets - and we show that server designs are now as malleable as play-doh.
