CyrusOne plans to build a new 50,000-square-foot data center colocation facility in Austin, making it the largest colo in Texas, according to Tier 1 Research.
AdaptivCool, the data center division of Degree Controls, has a new overhead cooling device meant to help eliminate data center hotspots.
The Hotspotr HT-710 sits on top of server cabinets and delivers 1,300 cubic feet per minute (CFM) of air to help cool targeted areas of the data center. The company already has an underfloor model for raised floors. The devices can work on their own to control temperature to a specific area, or work in concert with other similar devices to control temperature to an entire data center.APC upgrades data center security monitoring tools
APC (or American Power Conversion) has updated its NetBotz data center monitoring tools to improve support for cameras, cabling and Power over Ethernet.
The devices can be installed to record video and audio from the data center, and now have Pelco IP cameras, which APC said have better resolution. Pelco and APC are owned by the same parent company, Schneider Electric. Using Power over Ethernet prevents data centers from having to hide a power device in the wall or ceiling.
