CyrusOne | January 24, 2023
CyrusOne, a global leader in constructing and operating data centers, recently announced that it has bought a 57.6-acre extended piece of land in Loudoun County, Virginia. The intersection of the Dulles Greenway toll road and Belmont Ridge Road stands a future home to a cutting-edge data center complex catering to large companies and hyperscale cloud providers.
In the data center industry, CyrusOne is known for coming up with new ideas and promoting sustainability. Global Infrastructure Partners acquired it (GIP), an infrastructure investment firm and KKR, an investment firm, last year. Recently, the Company moved up its goal to become carbon neutral by 2030. Its annual Sustainability Report describes the Company's well-known efforts to be more sustainable. These efforts focus on energy efficiency, water conservation, biodiversity, and circular economy.
CyrusOne has been expanding globally under CEO Eric Schwartz since October 2022.
Eric Schwartz, Chief Executive Officer at CyrusOne, said, "CyrusOne is excited to expand its investment in Loudoun County where we successfully operate 10 data centers at five campus locations in one of the most important digital gateway markets in the United States." He added, "With strong demand in the Northern Virginia market, we are positioned to initiate development consistent with the existing zoning on this new site and deliver world-class digital infrastructure that meet the growing needs of our customers."

KX | January 19, 2023
KX, the creator of the world's fastest real-time analytics engine and time series database, and EnterpriseWeb, a pioneer in automation and telecom virtualization, have joined forces to provide network observability and automation solutions for performance centric systems.
KX and EnterpriseWeb offer a powerful and incredibly flexible closed-loop control mechanism that can be deployed on any system or distributed network, thus bringing together highly complementary technologies. Built around its kdb+ time series database, KX brings real-time analytics capabilities and market-leading data services for pattern recognition and the detection of anomalies. These feed Enterprise Web's intelligent orchestration platform for service management and intent-based network, which interprets the translation policies, and events and takes actions to maintain a declared state for a self-healing, self-scaling, and self-optimizing network. KX and EnterpriseWeb offer an integrated solution for service management at scale and a 'zero-touch' network.
James Corcoran, Chief Growth Officer, KX said, "We talk about KX as being an engine for time series and real-time analytics, powered by kdb+. As the results of the testbed project demonstrate, being the analytics engine in EnterpriseWeb's intelligent orchestration platform can yield significant benefits. Working alongside an all-star team of partners, we've shown that using time series-based technology like KX can dramatically improve response times and increase network efficiency. We're excited to see how our partnership with EnterpriseWeb can be applied to other use cases where the real-time monitoring and management of distributed networks, and low latency response and remediation is a critical requirement."
KX developed kdb+, independently benchmarked as the world's real-time analytics engine and fastest IT itime series datatbase. KX technology is trusted by the world's most prestigious and leading companies for mission-critical data applications because it is built for the most demanding data environments. The company’s industry-leading software analyzes and processes relational data and time series at an unmatched speed and scale, thus enabling richer actionable insights to drive decisions. The company empowers data engineers and developers to turbo-charge their most favorite analytics tools in the cloud, build high-performance data-driven applications, on-premise, or at the edge.
Infinitum | February 07, 2023
On February 06, 2023, Infinitum, one of the air core motor producers, launched, a brand new Aircore electrically commutated EC motor designed especially for data center’s cooling applications, reducing their power and energy consumption.
Customized for the data center cooling application's power, speed, and torque requirements, it enhances motor performance. In addition, it reduces energy consumption by about 10-15%, minimizing input current, reducing the wiring and protection urgencies of the electric unit, and thus saving costs on wiring, transformers, circuit breakers, and upstream electric infrastructure.
It features an integrated variable frequency drive (VFD), optimizing motor control and efficiency, with IoT connectivity to monitor critical equipment, BACnet and Modbus controllers, transforming building operations. It is about 50% smaller, lighter, more efficient, and quieter than traditional motors, using over 66% less copper than previous models with a sustainable circular lifecycle. Its modular design has reusable rotors, housing, and stators, increasing the model's life.
Senior Market Analyst at Interact Analysis, Blake Griffin, said, "Data centers are growing in size and energy intensity as the world's demand for data grows exponentially." He added, "Infinitum's smaller, lighter, high-efficiency motor systems are a key technology for reducing energy consumption and carbon footprint."
