I try not to post much business related stuff (ala Digital Realty Trust) on Loosebolts as its my own place to rant and rave. To be clear-none of the things I say on here represent the views of the company what-so-ever. But sometimes, there are a things that come along that really make me smile and I have to comment on them.
As you know I am huge fan of modularization in the data center. Modularization in construction, modularization in operation, modularization is just all-around goodness from a technical perspective through the business side of things. That’s why the newest marketing campaign from Digital has me smiling ear to ear. The new Data Center Construction kit brings back memories from when I was a kid and built giant structures for my little people to generally live, die, and party in. It was of course a modular approach that led to endless hours of fun and imagination. Applying these fond remembrances of youth and combining it with both the modular data center movement, and general fun will make this the MUST-HAVE piece of swag in the industry. Data Center Knowledge posted a video about the toys a few weeks ago. I can definitely tell you it will lead to hours of fun and wasted time at work putting it together. I should know, my completed “data center” sits proudly in my office!
After all we are all just kids at heart, aren’t we?
