Keeping readers informed is what brings me to this month’s cover stories. Fire safety in data centers is, pardon the pun, a hot topic. With code changes and emerging technology, it can be hard to keep track. Turn to page 40 for a leg up and a discussion on smoke detection requirements and to find out which systems work best in data center facilities.
WHAT’S NEW ON THE BLOG?
This month we are debuting a new column, “From The Blog,” which, as its name describes, highlights posts from the Mission Critical blog. We routinely publish posts from industry thought leaders and this column will feature these posts from time to time. Watch for it. This month, Sev Onyshkevych of FieldView Solutions weighs in on DCIM. If you would like to contribute to the Mission Critical blog, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
By the time you read this we will be well into August and nearing the end of summer, which means back to school. And what better way to further your data center education than by attending one of the myriad of industry events being held this fall? Look for Mission Critical on the road and, when you see us, stop by and say hi. Another great way to keep informed is to attend an educational webinar without leaving the office. We have a full slate of webinars scheduled on the Mission Critical events page. These informative sessions are free and continuing educational professional development hours (CE-PDH) are yours for attending.
