If you are not aware of Mission Critical’s webinars then you are really missing out on presentations ranging from temporary cooling solutions to generators to IoT given by industry leaders like Ed Spears, Julius Neudorfer, and Peter Panfil. In addition, several webinars offer continuing education credit and certificates of completion. Webinars are available on demand a year after their original air date, so get watching.

We have a stellar lineup of articles this issue and we are so glad that you joined us! We have an exclusive on the development of UL’s Data Center Certification Program, which also happens to be our cover story. The article was written by Mission Critical On Target columnist Paul E. Schlattman of ESD and Neil Lakomik of UL.

In addition, we have David Wood of Raritan writing on the realities of a physical data center in a software-defined world; J.P. Valiulis is on hand to share tips on cooling edge data centers; and Michael Silla of Skanska writes on the challenges of data center site selection.

We, of course, are also featuring our columnists, Julius Neudorfer, Terry L. Rodgers, Destiny Bertucci, Paul E. Schlattman, and Chris Crosby. All in all a great issue!
