It’s not a secret that Denver and the Rocky Mountain Region has been experiencing substantial growth in data center and other tech related business. Whether building new facilities, expanding existing ones or simply conducting business as usual, there’s almost always ample opportunity to increase energy efficiency and optimize data centers.
Fairbanks Energy Services sponsored the 2017 Hosting & Cloud Transformation Summit, 451 Research's premier event for the hosting, cloud computing, datacenter and Internet infrastructure sectors. The event was held September 18 through the 20th at the Bellagio Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. Fairbanks Energy shared their data center efficiency strategies and best practices with the audience of this year’s HCTS at booth #31. Enjoy some pictures from the event below!
A dense data center does not inherently mean that it will have greater efficiency (typically, quite the opposite is true). However, implementing increased efficiency measures is necessary to the operation of these facilities as the trend of environments increasing in density continues across the industry.
Tier II and Tier III markets are experiencing a rise in hosting demand as content moves to the edge. These smaller facilities in outlier locations extend the “edge” of the Internet further from the traditional Internet hubs such as New York City or Silicon Valley and provide low-latency access for local users.
