QTS | January 02, 2023
In an industry first, QTS Data Centers, a leading data Center solutions provider, recently announced its commitment to supply residual heat to a large-scale district heating project in partnership. Headquartered in Netherlands, QTS in collaboration with WarmteStad, a sustainable utility company of the municipality of Groningen, will supply the heat out of its Groningen data Center as part of its sustainability initiative.
WarmteStad recently unveiled an innovative heating plant that will utilize 100% residual heat from the QTS Groningen data Center. Heat pumps powered by renewable energy distribute hot water via an existing underground heating network installed in Zernike, Paddepoel, and Selwerd. By 2026, WarmteStad expects to produce sustainable and affordable heat for over 10,000 households, buildings, and knowledge institutions in Groningen's northern districts.
Buildings can operate without a natural gas connection when heated with water, significantly reducing CO2 emissions and supporting Groningen's environmental goal of being completely CO2 neutral by 2035.
QTS has committed to minimizing its data center carbon footprint through innovative solutions including the utilization of renewable energy, reclaimed water, and recycled materials to support both QTS and our customers' sustainability initiatives."
Travis Wright, VP of Energy and Sustainability, QTS.

Lattice Semiconductor | March 01, 2023
On February 28, 2023, the leader in low-power programmable semiconductors, Lattice Semiconductor, expanded its Lattice ORANTM solution stack to assist flexible, secure synchronization and timing for Open Radio Access Network (ORAN) implementations. Lattice ORANTM now supports tight synchronization for ORAN fronthaul interfaces adherence with critical ITU (International Telecommunication Union) profiles and IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) standards. This enhances the stack's ability to accelerate and secure current and next-generation customer applications.
The latest Lattice ORANTM solution stack (v 1.1) has built-in mutual authentication for secure synchronization and support for
IEEE Standards, including IEEE Std 1588™-2019 (default profile) and IEEE Std 802.1AS™-2020, made for Time Sensitive Networks (TSN).
ITU-T Telecom Profiles, which includes frequency synchronization (G.8265.1), Phase/time synchronization with incomplete timing support (G.8275.2) and Phase/time synchronization with complete timing support (G.8275.1).
ITU-T Timing Characteristics of T-BC and T-TSC Class C (G.8273.2)
In addition, a Lattice FPGA-based development platform has been incorporated into the Lattice ORANTM stack. FPGA stands for Field Programmable Gate Array, and it is an integrated circuit (IC) that facilitates the rapid prototyping and final system design of custom logic. The Secure Timing and Synchronization Kit are intended to simplify the testing, exhibition, and creation of novel telecommunications applications.

Pure Storage | March 06, 2023
Pure Storage®, the IT pioneer that provides the most sophisticated data storage technology and services, has recently introduced FlashBlade//ETM, a scale-out unstructured data repository designed to accommodate exponential data growth with best-in-class energy efficiency. FlashBlade//E eliminates the need for customers to settle for disc storage, as its acquisition cost is comparable to that of disc, and its operational costs are much lower.
FlashBlade//E offers an improved approach to managing unstructured data growth efficiently, reliably, and sustainably, with an industry-leading user experience and economics allowing customers to eliminate disc in their data center. Its advantages include:
FlashBlade//E is the industry leader in energy efficiency, consuming up to five times less energy than the disk-based systems it will substitute. The larger the system, the more efficient it is, thereby assisting organizations in achieving their increasingly vital sustainability objectives.
FlashBlade//E is designed to flex and grow on demand, with 10-20x more consistency than hard disk-based systems, without disruption or forklift upgrades. The solution is easy to manage at any scale due to its cloud-like simplicity, adaptability, and predictable performance.
FlashBlade//E is offered for less than $0.20 per GB, including three years of support. The platform begins at 4PB and scales while providing dependable performance.
The solution will be available to the general public by the end of April 2023. In addition to the standard purchase, customers can deploy FlashBlade//E through an innovative service tier of Pure's Evergreen//One Storage-as-a-Service (STaaS) subscription, offering a cloud experience and pay-as-you-go economics with on-premises deployment control.
