Unleashing the Full Value of Next-Gen IT: The Key to it All

2022-08-03T11:47:19-05:00

As rapid, multi-industry advances reshape the way our world communicates, operates, educates and finds entertainment, technologies like AI, IoT, VR and a whole lot of other acronyms have taken the world by storm. However, as we look to truly harness the power of these technologies and adapt them to a dynamic world, the edge data center remains king.  Edge data centers have been a much-discussed facet of IT due to their importance in getting the right levels of latency and speed for tomorrow’s fast-paced, data-intensive applications — but not all edge data centers are created equal. That’s because not all edge data centers have data gravity.  Many may know data [...]

More Content, More Connectivity — We’re Turning Up Our Ecosystem with Akamai

2022-05-20T11:30:06-05:00

When 1623 Farnam recently asked tenants what they wanted most from the facility, the answers were clear – access to more content and high-value peering opportunities. 1623 asked. The tenants answered. And we delivered — not only with a recent major hyperscaler network turn-up, but with another high-value ecosystem expansion to boot. In May, 1623 announced  a key hyperscaler had upgraded its 1623 port from 40G to 100G, delivering a major expansion and offering a slew of new networking and peering opportunities in the 1623 ecosystem. But as promised, 1623 didn’t stop there. The company has just announced another major expansion that will greatly benefit 1623 tenants. Akamai Technologies, Inc., [...]

5G: Catalyzing Humanity’s Newest Revolution

2022-05-09T16:09:39-05:00

In the span of human existence and evolution, there always comes a time when we bring about major leaps forward in terms of how our species lives, thrives, and interacts with both its surroundings and itself.  The agricultural revolutions first allowed our nomadic ancestors to become settled and helped our populations grow due to reliable food sources, then enhanced farming techniques spurred our numbers further and helped us more efficiently cultivate our Earth. Then there are the industrial revolutions, which helped us increase our productivity and carved our map of urban centers where populations were highest. These also helped streamline our methods of living, offering humankind greater ease while shifting [...]

Liquid Cooling – It’s Not Just for Hyperscalers Anymore

2022-04-26T13:51:48-05:00

In the two-part series for the publication EdgeIR, Linn Gowen, vice president of business development at 1623 Farnam, begins by explaining how edge data centers could benefit from adopting liquid cooling as an efficient, sustainable alternative to traditional air cooling. The problem, as Linn points out, is that some risk-averse edge data centers have been slow to adopt liquid cooling. The prevailing paradigm, he notes, has been that “liquid cooling was only for hyperscale facilities that needed to fit more density into a smaller space.” But Linn points out that there is one pressing reason why edge centers should consider liquid cooling. Liquid cooling is much more efficient than air cooling. [...]

Data Center Certifications: Understanding the Language of Compliance

2022-04-06T11:29:04-05:00

Data centers are crucial parts of any robust IT framework — and that means they need to be able to reliably keep up with changing regulations and demands across security, sustainability and other mission-critical metrics. The best way to measure these metrics is with standardized certifications. This allows potential data center customers to know exactly how individual facilities hold up best practices and to easily compare data centers and their operators with competitors. These certifications serve as benchmarks — but they do evolve as industry standards change. Here’s a look at some key certifications and why you should be aware of them during your data center procurement. SOC One of [...]
