Data Center Blog Roundup

Data center blogging has been scarce until recently. We review some new industry blogs.

I haven't had the opportunity to link to a lot of other data center blogs because ... well, until recently there haven't been many data center blogs aside from this one. That's changing, and so today we note several blogs that will be of interest to data center professionals and investors.

John Rath's Data Center Information blog has a post about Netriplex relocating a data center from Boston to Asheville, N.C. and ponders the underlying trend towards locating facilities in smaller markets.

The Data Center Design Blog is penned by staffers at PTS Data Center Solutions in North Jersey. It's been sporadicaly maintained thus far, but recently had an interesting post about "dark" data centers and design considerations.


The SearchDataCenter Blog is another recent launch, and is written by Matt Stansberry, who covers data center news for the TechTarget IT news network. The most recent post looked at standards on server efficiency.

Also worth noting are several blogs that focus on other topics but sometimes mention data center issues. The best of these include:

Geeking With Greg from Greg Linden, the founder and CEO of news aggregator Findory, who has some real insight into infrastructure.

GigaOm by veteran telco and infrastructure journalist Om Malik, who recently struck out on his own after years at Business 2.0.

Have I missed any data center blogs? If so, feel free to share non-spam URLs in the comments.
