Roundup: Colocation, Server Naming

Here’s a roundup of some interesting data center links from the past week:

  • Paolo Gorgo from Nortia Research has a detailed review of recent events and trends in the market for colocation space for financial institutions. 
  • Bill Snyder at InfoWorld is also writing about colocation, looking at supply and demand and its impact on pricing.
  • What’s your naming scheme for your servers? At Slashdot there’s a lengthy discussion of Unix server names. Most folks seem to like names closely tied to function, rather than names of cartoon characters or wines and cheeses.
  • Globe Street is talking data center site location with Ronald Bowman of Tishman Technologies, who rates North Carolina as one of the top destinations for data centers.
