Mission Critical Magazine is always looking for ways to make sure our readers have the best information to do their jobs. To that end, we have created an evergreen page on our website filled with informative articles by the industry’s top thought leaders on one of the hottest topics in the industry: data center design. Data center design is continually evolving to meet the challenges of not only energy efficient data centers but also the unique needs of data center cooling systems and data center power systems, such as data center UPS systems and battery backup. A well-thought out design plan will increase uptime and reliability for owners and colocation clients. Read all about it at http://bit.ly/29wYALH.

If it is the July/August issue, it must mean we are covering fire safety and data center security, green data centers, and modular data centers. And we are! For the fire and security topics, Laura Bennett, P.E. of Syska Hennessey writes about fire suppression in data centers; Coleman Wolf, CPP, CISSP, of Environmental Systems Design talks about cyber security; and Chris Hobbs of ASSA ABLOY examines the physical security needed by data centers. To round out our featured topics for this month, Karl Fenstermaker of TCM writes on adapting data centers for optimal efficiency, and Brian George, AIA of Corgan evaluates modular data centers. In addition, we have a great lineup of columnists, including Julius Neudorfer, Terry L. Rodgers, Mav Turner, Paul Schlattman, Peter Curtis, Bruce Myatt, and Chris Crosby. Enjoy!
