Volume 4 of The Uptime Institute Journal is the second in the series to examine the challenges of data center operations and management. The articles look at how large enterprises solved real-world problems of such as reliability, cooling inefficiencies, and dated electrical infrastructure in live facilities.

This year, Uptime Institute has significantly applied our thought leadership to ensuring that enterprises can better deploy their resources (both financial and staff) and reduce the chronic waste that has been a longstanding issue in our industry. At its core, this is a management challenge, not a technology solutions decision and a longstanding mandate for Uptime Institute.

Uptime Institute Network members and winners of 2014 Brill Awards for Efficient IT wrote the bulk of these articles. Uptime Institute staff industry professionals and experts in the field  contributed to many of the articles as well. This edition of the Journal features several noteworthy management-related pieces. The article "A Holistic Approach to Reducing Resource Consumption in Enterprise IT" should be of particular interest to readers. Other staff-written articles investigate staffing, commissioning, and methods of procedure.

About The Uptime Institute Journal

The Uptime Institute Journal represents Uptime Institute’s ongoing commitment to support knowledge sharing in the data center community.

Uptime Institute conceived The Uptime Institute Journal in 2013 as a way to promote thought leadership, innovation, and proven methodologies of various disciplines and professions within the data center industry. Its mission is to showcase world-class projects, recognize individual- or team-level accomplishments, and further the industry at large. This publication is committed to senior-level, peer-to-peer knowledge transfer — expertise provided by the individuals responsible for development, execution, or oversight of major data center initiatives.

Editors of The Uptime Institute Journal solicit articles from around the world, focusing their attention on facilities, techniques, and ideas that have been validated by Uptime Institute standards, findings, and experience or by extraordinary success in real-world applications. The editors value contributions from authors with hands-on experience.

To date, contributors to The Uptime Institute Journal have included Accredited Tier Designers (ATDs), Accredited Tier Specialists (ATSs), Network Members from all four regions (North America, EMEA, Latin America, Asia-Pacific), and Tier Certification awardees, as well as Uptime Institute’s technical staff, with field experience in dozens of countries. Collectively, these contributors have described facilities located around the globe, including the U.S., Middle East, Russia, South Africa, Australia, China, and Latin America.

Future issues will include articles submitted in response to a wide call for submissions, drawn from the Brill Awards for Efficient IT, Uptime Institute Network presentations, and Uptime Institute Tier Certifications, all complemented by articles developed directly by Uptime Institute’s own subject-matter experts.

The editors of The Uptime Institute Journal actively seek articles describing best practices, examining new technologies, or exhibiting thought leadership from industry professionals.
