I would like to introduce myself and my first “Hot Aisle Insight” column here at Mission Critical. I have read Mission Criticalfor many years and occasionally contributed articles. I am honored to have been asked join as a regular columnist, in addition to writing my blog on the website. I hope to cover the trends and technology of infrastructure designs, in addition to the developments of the IT equipment (which can obviously impact the design of the data center power and cooling infrastructure). Lest we forget, supporting the computing hardware is the ultimate “mission” of the mission critical data center. I hope to keep it topical and technically interesting, yet with a bit of skepticism and my personal commentary and opinion. I already posted my 2012 predictions on my blog, but I thought that I would expand on what I foresee for 2012.
