Wednesday Links

Lots of little things that I thought I would quickly blog about..... data center news has been pretty heavy lately and I'm just catching up.

  • My data center stock index was up today almost a whole dollar from the previous day. I started it back in October, so I thought I would finally make a graph just to show the ride it has taken since then. It closed today at $19.48.



  • This is a month old now, but I still found it pretty interesting -- "Why IT Colocation Centers will see a boom in 2009 despite the Macroeconomy".
  • Anyone looking for a project plan for building a data center -- here is a good read, plus a benchmark against one of the best: Digital Realty Trust.
  • I was pretty bummed about the news that Microsoft is postponing the West Des Moines data center. However.... it is just 'postponing' it, not scrapping it. I guess we'll just have to be patient.
  • Finally -- I thought I would share a bit of humor -- as a fan of The Matrix trilogy, I thought this video was pretty funny: The Matrix Runs on Windows

The link to ""Why IT Colocation Centers will see a boom in 2009 despite the Macroeconomy". is broken. I found an alternate place for the link as in:
http://www.eweek.com/c/a/Data-Storage/Why-IT-Colocation-Centers-Will-See-Boom-in-2009-Despite-the-Macroeconomy/

Might want to re-link.....Zen

I wasn't sure if this is the correct place to post this, but I thought you might be interested in another link. Graybar.com has set up a new Data Center section on their site, it's packed with some really good information and links. If you get time you should check it out. Graybar Data Centers
