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 [...]

How to Ditch the Fear of Falling Behind and Never Miss a Tech Beat

So often it seems like the best and most magical experiences occur when you just happen to be at the right place at the right time. When it comes to IT, however, there’s a science to making sure you’re always where you need to be and never missing a beat.  In our recent blog, we discussed the idea of IT FOMO. As most of us know it, FOMO is the fear of missing out on exciting experiences or fun memories and the camaraderie that comes with it. But in technology and business, FOMO brings with it a more dire edge. In a world evolving at breakneck speed with businesses all [...]

IT FOMO: The Key to Not Missing Out on Innovation

2022-02-01T16:11:49-06:00

The fear of missing out. As social beings, many of us know this feeling well. As social beings in the digital, ultra-connected age, this feeling often becomes more acute as life’s greatest moments and most exciting stories are paraded in front of our eyes constantly over social media and beyond. But what happens when a business gets a bad case of FOMO? In this day and age, when rapid innovation persists and the technologies that come from it seem to exist on a continuum that spans from ‘necessary’ to ‘disastrous if not adopted’, FOMO can be crippling. So many IT options exist, organizations can’t possibly incorporate them all. Every time [...]
