Some quick data center news links seen around the web this morning:
- The American Express web site home page was offline for more than five hours yesterday, according to Pingdom . The outage occurred during overnight hours for the East Coast, but doesn’t appear to have been planned. “If American Express were performing planned website maintenance, a maintenance message should have been shown on the homepage,” Pingdom notes.
- Dell has launched In The Clouds , a blog dedicated to “condensing ideas on the future of cloud computing.” And discussing the merits of hardware options for running those clouds.
- Google will use on-site renewable energy at its data center in Goose Creek, South Carolina, according to Paul Froutan, director of Google’s hardware operations. Froutan was the keynote speaker Wednesday night at a fundraising dinner for technology education in Columbia, South Carolina – just a few short miles from Blythewood, where Google has purchased a large piece of land for evaluation as a future data center.
