DCD Magazine – June/July Issue

VOL 0 ISSUE 22 DatacenterDynamics Magazine Magazine Cover

Available bi-monthly in print or as a digital download, each issue is completely free and filled with the latest news, features and opinions from DCD’s global editorial team.

The lifecycle of a data center

On the cover: Data centers may be buildings, but they have a life of their own. This issue of DCD Magazine tracks that life story, from the first planning application, to the last flicker of life as the facility is shut down.

On the way, the building will be part of shifting partnerships and family allegiances, and may suffer life-threatening illnesses - just like a human being (p.18)

Also in the magazine: 

  • We travel to what could be Europe’s largest data center, Lefdal Mine (p.24)
  • Things get extreme - we chart the 10 craziest data centers in space, the army, and much more (p.31)
  • What’s happening in the world of the Industrial Internet of Things? (p.37)
  • He’s back! DCD talks to the one and only Mark Shuttleworth about all things Canonical (p.40)
  • Plus: News, features from LATAM and APAC, opinions from The Infrastructure Masons and an aging data center, and more

  • Data centers have to beat the heat, and Peter Judge looks at how, delving into the science of psychrometry while he’s at it (p.4)
  • Could you turn to a lake, river or aquifer to cool your data center? (p.10)
