Baronyx is building a wind powered data center

A 28,000 square-foot data center, fully powered by wind, will be built in Stratford, Texas for Baronyx.  It will initially be powered by 150 onshore wind turbines. Each of those turbines are capable of producing between 3.3 to 6 MW of power. 450 additional turbines will be added later in the Gulf of Mexico.

The darker side of the cloud

Earlier this week I wrote that web hosting firms needed to embrace the idea of cloud computing in order to stay competitive, citing the recent announcement of Chrome OS and Google’s general sway over internet trends in general. But what about the downsides of cloud hosting?

Rackspace’s Chicago data center

An announcement has been made by Rackspace Hosting that it has leased a facility in Chicago for a new data center. The size of the rented space is 36,700 square feet and it operates with 5.633 megawatts of critical load. It will go online later this year.

Computing on a cloud; it’s about time

With Google’s recent announcement of their upcoming Chrome operating system, the idea of cloud computing has taken center-stage within the technology industry in general and the hosting industry in particular.

Unisys Corporation won a 2-year contract to provide Starbucks with data center services.

The DC, surprisingly, is located in China and this news allows Starbucks to expand its existence in China.

Attenda launches its third UK data center

Attenda has launched its third data center in the United Kingdom. It accommodates the company’s large cloud computing platform called Attenda RTI. The facility is also independent of the other two data centers under company management. The new DC features a virtualization platform that increases agility while reducing the cost of operating client infrastructures.

Your green certificate is not green enough

While outfitting data centers to draw 100% of their energy needs from environmentally-friendly efforts like wind or solar power generation may not be feasible for most companies with today’s technology, web hosts are finding new and clever ways to offset their carbon footprint – and advertise so-called “green hosting”.

Questions you didn’t know you can ask potential web hosting providers

Looking for a new web hosting company to deal with? I am guessing you’ve already looked through tens of same old articles and same old advice suggesting what to ask prospective companies of your choice or what to watch out for. Stay away from promises of unlimited resources. Verify the age of a company you […]
