Grab your Gaffi stick, follow those bantha tracks to the Mos Eisely Cantina, down a glass of blue milk, sit back, relax and enjoy everyone’s favorite Bith tune – it’s May the 4th! We are calling out this international holiday, which celebrates Star Wars not because it’s perhaps the most important narrative of our time, but it happens to have major ramifications on the internet infrastructure industry.

It all started on October 19th, 2015 when Star Wars: The Force Awakens tickets went on sale. Even though the prequels didn’t live up to the masses’ expectations (watch them again, we see lots of merit there), fans were fanatical about securing seats for the opening show of the first instalment of a sequel trilogy featuring the original cast they’ve grown to adore over the past 40 years. Almost instantly after online sales went live, a glut of users crashed the top three online ticket retailers. Quoting Obi-Wan, it was “as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror.” Fans that couldn’t obtain tickets for their choice theater must have felt the angst Anakin did when he was given a spot on the Jedi council, but denied the rank of master.

The average person doesn’t care how the Internet reaches them – they just want it available 100% of the time and anything less than light speed is intolerable. They aren’t aware of the complex mesh of subsea cables, data centers, and terrestrial networks that join forces to deliver access, much like most lifeforms in the Star Wars Galaxy didn’t know the Death Star’s super laser was powered by the same crystals Jedi use for their lightsabers. It’s up to our industry to develop the ecosystem of infrastructure that guarantees anyone, no matter if they’re residing in the real-world equivalent of the core worlds or outer rim territories.

In fact, lack of critical infrastructure outside of top tier cities is one of the greatest impediments to a seamless user experience. Akin to the Sith’s quest for unlimited power, Internet users have an unquenchable desire for additional content at their fingertips. At DataSite, we believe in the ubiquitous proliferation of the Internet, so we select sites for our data centers that facilitate the deployment of critical infrastructure in strategic markets that have not received a level of investment anywhere close to that found only in the very largest metropolitan areas. Nothing is more fulfilling to us than laying a digital foundation for young dreamers in remote worlds, gazing at the sunset(s) to fulfill their destinies.

Star Wars didn’t crash the Internet just once. Although the rush was not as severe as it was for The Force Awakens, online retailers had difficulties yet again when ticket sales for Rouge One: A Star Wars Story went live last year. With a new Star Wars movie expected every year for the foreseeable future, we can expect internet infrastructure to take many more beatings. It’s not like Star Wars is unabashedly bombarding the Internet without remorse. Rouge One, the first Star Wars spin off movie released this past December, was actually a love letter to the power of data. The movie, which led us right up to the moment the original Star Wars began, showed us the story we cherish so dearly was actually sprung into motion by a successful mission to retrieve and transmit a large data file.

As you celebrate this important day – in addition to losing yourself in a galaxy far, far away – consider ways our global digital ecosystem should evolve so it could handle something as simple as a movie launching its online ticket sales.

Orlando, FLA – May 02, 2017 – DataSite, a wholesale data center space and network service provider that owns and operates world-class colocation facilities in Atlanta, Boise and Orlando, announces it will install Motivair Corporation’s ChilledDoor Rack Cooling system to accommodate a high performance computing (HPC) environment for a strategic customer. This initial engagement will officially launch an ongoing partnership between the two companies to deliver HPC services across DataSite’s facilities.

Market research firm, IDC, projects the HPC market will grow from $23.1B in 2016 to $31.4B in 2019, fueled by the desire to reap the of benefits of power hungry servers, storage, middleware, and applications. This trend is largely driven by more robust connectivity solutions delivering richer media to data centers that consequently require more intensive computing operations to process the rising influx of data. With the ChilledDoor system, DataSite will have the capability to accommodate supercomputing gear for applications, such as artificial intelligence (AI) in cars, medical research and weather tracking, all of which demand as much as 75kW per rack. Motivair’s solution is an active rear door heat exchanger that is mounted directly to the rear panel of the rack that ensures all heat being generated by equipment is neutralized before it leaves the cabinet. This eliminates the need for traditional cooling systems to operate on the HPC environment. Additionally, the system is continuously monitoring atmospheric variables to adjust conditions on a real-time basis, increasing data center efficiencies by as much as 90%.

“We were eager to accommodate our customers’ desire to deploy HPC clusters in DataSite facilities, but did not want to sacrifice operational efficiencies,” comments Rob Wilson, Executive Vice President for DataSite. “After an extensive search of the HPC cooling market, Motivair was selected as the ideal product that provided industry best cooling capabilities while meeting DataSite’s Sustainability commitments.”

“As the HPC market expands, traditional cooling systems, such as CRACs and in-row systems, will not be able to accommodate next generation hardware efficiently,” adds Rich Whitmore, President & CEO of Motivair.  “DataSite is setting themselves apart as an early adopter of HPC colocation cooling solutions by utilizing the ChilledDoor technology, and it’s encouraging for us to work with a partner that is willing to reinvent its operational approach as technology evolves. We are eager to launch this initiative in Orlando and look forward to accommodate DataSite customers’ HPC ambitions in Atlanta and Boise as well.”

Ah, Earth Day. It’s not only a time to reflect on the majesty of the natural world, but also a time to consider how we’re treating it. The Earth Day Network, which organizes the global movement, wants us to mobilize to address climate change and protect the Earth for future generations. Having a designated day for citizens to galvanize around that mission is critical to finding our way to sustainable living. Unfortunately, there are already many cases of irreversible damage incurred by our planet. NASA reports that sea levels have risen about 17 centimeters in the last century; acidity of our oceans increased by 30% since the industrial revolution; and Antarctica lost about 152 cubic kilometers (36 cubic miles) of ice between 2002 and 2005. The ramifications are dire and we can already see the negative results through the massive increase of extreme weather events that destroy habitats, households, and businesses.

Almost every personal and professional purchase we make inflicts some sort of negative externality on the natural environment. Now with modern conveniences, it’s impossible to eliminate our environmental footprint completely, but we ought to make decisions that mitigate these ramifications as best we can. ClickClean, Greenpeace’s widely publicized annual data center sustainability report card states that the IT sector in 2017 is estimated to consume approximately 7% of global electricity and 21% of that is attributed to data centers. No one’s saying we should scale back the Internet – that train has left the station and the benefits are staggering. But, going about the aggressive expansion of the digital world in a conscientious manner is essential to mitigating the considerable environmental impact caused by a sector that’s already a major contributor of greenhouse gases by way of its colossal energy requirements.

When searching for a data center partner, companies looking to reduce the environmental impact of their IT operations ought to identify facilities that leverage utility power generated by a healthy mix of renewal energy sources; i.e. not too reliant on coal or petroleum. Next, providers should be assessed on the sophistication of the critical infrastructure systems within the considered data centers. Efficiency gains can most easily be realized by the cooling system in place. Is outside air used to cool the IT equipment? Is hot/cold aisle containment implemented? Are chillers optimized to sensitively scale cooling in conjunction with the IT load? Is cold air directed intelligently to ensure maximum interaction with servers? Finally, even if a data center features the most efficient infrastructure on the market, it’s only as good as the people operating it. Having a team that continually optimizes operations to improve power usage effectiveness (PUE) and other key operational indicators is perhaps most important.

In the midst of climate change, finding an energy efficient data center should not be an environmentally-aware organization’s sole concern. Selecting a site that is protected from a more volatile climate is also crucial. The EPA tracked 32 weather events in the United States that caused at least $1 billion in damages between 1980 and 2012. It’s unclear if data center outages were included in the Agency’s summation, but those costs are nothing to sneeze at. Last year, Data Center Frontier published a report that estimates the average data center outage costs over $740,000 dollars and will only grow as companies rely more on digital applications. This is where site selection comes into play – companies need to pinpoint locations that not only meet their latency requirements, but also provide an environmentally and geologically stable climate.

DataSite not only has facilities in exceptionally safe environments, but also strives to minimize its carbon footprint. The utility power we leverage takes advantage of hydroelectric, wind, and solar sources. We employ the latest cooling strategies to minimize our energy usage including free-air cooling, high-efficiency chillers with variable frequency drives, thermal insulation, chilled water to the rack, plenum and chimney returns, and hot/cold aisle containment. Our seasoned operations team is always seizing efficiency gains, leveraging infrared imaging to both diagnose and document the reduction of bypass airflow in all DataSite facilities. Our customers, in addition to the environment, benefit from our penchant for sustainability. Since PUE is factored into our metered power program, all efficiency gains are passed down. And we’re always looking to drive down our PUE!

As a provider of data center services, we are going to work even harder of Earth Day to reduce our environmental footprint through infrastructural improvements and even more diligent operational procedures. We know the Internet is only going to grow. As a supplier of its most foundational infrastructure, we promise to do our best to minimize the environmental cost. In return, we ask users to make intelligent choices.

The times they are a changin’”. Back in 1964 when Bob Dylan first sang these words, we might not have imagined a world in which information is created, shared and utilized in a matter of seconds.

It is equally hard to imagine that digital data or IT infrastructure would become a company’s most valuable asset. network-cables

But what a brave new world it has become.

The High Performance Computing (HPC) or Supercomputing landscape is changing rapidly and companies need more advanced security and IT infrastructure than ever.

The good news is that as the needs of consumers change with time, so does HPC.

Growing Over Time

High performance computing has proliferated to the point where it even hosts an annual international conference.  Starting in 1989, 29 years ago, the SC conference series, (sponsored by ACM SIGHPC and IEEE Computer Society) has met every year to discuss the ever-changing landscape that makes up the HPC industry.  From computer hardware design & operations to the best mission-critical facility environments, including water cooling and other ways to manage the high-density power & compute requirements the conference supports the ever-growing march of technology. 

This year, SC16 is being held in Salt Lake City, Utah.  The dates of the conference are November 13 – 18, 2016.  Scientists, computer engineers, mission-critical facility operators, communication specialists and a myriad of other high -tech professionals will gather at the conference to discuss new and emerging opportunities and technologies in the HPC industry.  Together, they will brainstorm on problem solving and collaborate on interesting and innovative ways to utilize the tremendous capabilities of Supercomputing technologies!

HPC and Innovation

Before HPC gained full-scale popularity, it was used by geologists, meteorologists and medical researchers to create complex algorithms to solve scientific problems.

Now, HPC is being embraced by small businesses, entrepreneurs and inventors. It has been called by some “the key to future innovation.”

Car manufacturers, for example, use High Performance Computing to perform virtual crash tests on their vehicles. A safety test that cost Ford Motor Company $60,000 just 20 years ago, costs around $10 today.

This is all thanks to HPC.

Similarly, Dumont’s Pioneer Hi-Bred has turned to HPC to help farmers increase their biofuels production. Through a series of simulations, researchers are working to create a hybrid seed that can withstand floods, disease, insects and drought.

Instead of spending years analyzing massive amounts of data, they use HPC to obtain answers in a matter of weeks, days or even hours.

Thanks to HPC, Pioneer Hi-Bred has created a research program that is up to 50 times bigger than what they could have achieved without the new computing technologies available today.

Corporations are turning to HPC to solve their business and infrastructural challenges.

For example, PING, a golf club manufacturer, is using HPC to test their new prototype ideas.  If a prototype performs poorly in a simulation, they can save $20,000 to $30,000 by eliminating the need to send a potentially flawed product to production. Goodyear is following the same pattern by using HPC to test new tire designs.

Of course, medical researchers and providers will continue to use HPC to determine if an idea is even worth moving to the testing phase.

As HPC starts to gain a foot hold in mainstream commerce we are starting to see the signs of rapid adoption and the proliferation of supercomputing.  At DataSite, for example, all of our data center facilities throughout the United States (Atlanta, Georgia;  Boise, Idaho and Orlando, Florida) are designed to deliver the massive amounts of power to these super computers.  All the data center areas are supplied with chilled water taps to help cool the intense heat of the supercomputing processor chips.  HPC users leverage the DataSite colocation facilities for Department of Defense style physical security to protect these multi-million dollar machines as well as huge amounts of clean & uninterrupted power required to operate this IT infrastructure.

Whether a client requires a one-rack solution or a full-scale customized data center environment, DataSite is positioned to support the intense high-power density data center space required to day and wall into the future.

Over time, high performance computing has proven to be key to economic development around the world.  It has been proven that Countries which invest in HPC gain a clear advantage over countries that do not.

According to a report from market consultancy company Intersect 360, the U.S. must embrace HPC in order to maintain a competitive edge in the global market place.

High performance computing is inextricably linked to innovation, fueling breakthroughs in science, engineering and business,” as stated in Intersect’s report.

In other words, obtaining and developing HPC systems should be at or near the top of every developed country’s priority list.  It could also be what sets a nation apart from its economic competitors across the globe.
