Data Center Blogosphere Links

1 comment

Here are a few quick links from other blogs that track the data center sector. John Rath has posted several interesting links to his Data Center Information Blog recently, including one about a $32 million data center project in Virginia. John also stumbled across an eBay auction for a substantial amount of data center equipment. That’s a throwback to the “nuclear winter” years of 2002-03, when lots of surplus equipment from bankrupt providers was sold at online auction sites.

Although I missed this when it was first posted, Matt Stansberry at the SearchDataCenter blog has a nice roundup of blogs that cover the data center sector, including some nice comments about our site.

Isabel Wang is keeping readers on their toes by posting interesting stuff on both her blog at The WHIR and at Isabel Says. Finally, the new GigaOm hosting-telecom blog IPNetworked is being retooled just two weeks after its debut, and will be relaunched soon with a tighter focus on online video.

  1. Hi Rich! Thanks for the list of resources - and for mentioning me :) I think another interesting read is the Amazon Web Services Blog (http://aws.typepad.com/). While it never specifically mentions data centers, it offers ongoing examples of how people are using Amazon's virtualized platform instead of procuring actual space in hosting facilities. Like Matt, I also follow Jonathan Schwartz's blog - but does he really not write it himself?
