Size brings a whole different set of issues. Large data centers have to hit time and cost targets, and they have to work reliably. Given all that, it's obvious that building data centers at scale is a different ball game to previous contests.

It's also obvious that there's more to this than just working with bigger pencils and paper, and bringing out the large diggers.

In this supplement, we look at how things might be changed by working at hyperscale. Read on to to find out:

  • How a data center can go from a liability to an environmental asset by building near a complementary industry
  • What SAP's growth strategy looks like
  • How the construction of mega data centers is changing, as well as where we build them
  • How a complete virtual copy of a data center can help you build better - and more sustainably
