Keynote: How we Built a Fully Prefabricated Data Center

It’s has been debated whether prefabricated, modular data centers offer real advantages compared to traditional data center builds, including speed to market, predictability, scalability, and capital preservation. Keystone NAP, a colocation provider with a facility in the North East has realized these benefits by partnering with Schneider Electric to design and build its first prefabricated data center. With 13MW of available power, the facility has been designed to accommodate a stacked prefabricated architecture. The site can accommodate up to 132 Prefabricated IT Modules with supporting power modules, that will be installed and customized to support their customer requirements.  Learn more about this design and how Keystone NAP has realized the real benefits of prefabricated design for their business success.

NWSC: A Reliable, Green Supercomputing Research Center

The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) CONNECTS over 100 university and research laboratories across the country into their new computing facility in Cheyenne, Wyoming. The facility provides advanced computing services to scientists studying a broad range of disciplines with a uniquely atmospheric centered basis. The supercomputers and associated data resources are housed in a world class facility that was made possible through the COLLABORATIVE efforts of Federal, State, and Industry partners. This presentation will outline utilization of supercomputers in scientific research, and then offer a case study of NCAR’s new supercomputing center and the performance DELIVERED in Wyoming.

Walking the Tightrope of a Colocation Service Provider

Cloud computing vendors, hosting companies and other IT service providers are opening multi-tenant data centers (MTDCs) at a rapid pace. Thanks largely to the intense competitive pressures they face, they must reduce power-related costs without compromising reliability or agility. Join this case study discussion on how Hurricane Electric handled the high demands of providing colocation services and delivered on differentiation, uptime and efficiency. This presentation will review the unique challenges concerning maintaining and operating their data center as well as how they overcome those challenges to deliver competitive services to their customers.
