Here’s a roundup of some quick data center news links for today:
- The Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC), which was the first customer to order a Sun MD container data center, has now ordered a second one (now renamed Sun MD). “We needed the additional capacity this year,” said Chuck Boeheim, the Scientific Computing and Commuting Services (SCCS) Assistant Director. “With the first Blackbox working out very well, we invested in a second to meet increasing need.”
- Phil Koen, the CEO of Savvis (SVVS), clearly believes the company’s stock will rebound. Koen recently bought 20,000 shares of common stock, according to a Securities and Exchange Commission filing Friday.
