Today, data centers are the beating hearts of the companies they serve. Data centers process billions of Internet transactions every day. It's therefore critical for companies and IT organizations to understand the state-of-the-art in data center design. Narrow aspects - such as cooling, wiring, or power usage - are often the subject of technical documents. But it's rare to find a holistic view of how a great data center was designed - until now. In The Art of the Data Center, Cisco's Doug Alger takes you behind the scenes at 20 of the world's most innovative data centers. Through interviews with their designers, Alger reveals why key decisions were made, and shows how construction and other challenges were overcome. He goes behind the scenes with pioneering companies like Cisco, Amazon, eBay, and Facebook, presenting design lessons that can be applied in widely diverse environments. Readers will also encounter amazing data centers like these: * A data center built into a 19th-century chapel * A shipboard data center * A data center built in an underground military bunker, with artificial daylight, manmade waterfall, and backup generators * A data center shaped like a chicken coop * The world's first green-certified data center Data center professionals directly involved in planning, design, or operations will find this book remarkably useful - and a much broader audience of IT executives and practitioners will find it utterly fascinating.
