Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba is developing immersion cooling technology for data centers, which it hopes to eventually contribute to the Open Compute Project (OCP). Immersion cooling systems sink server components in dielectric coolant, with a secondary water circuit typically responsible for removing heat from hardware. This approach promises to improve cooling efficiency and reduce power consumption, but is yet to find mainstream popularity.
Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba has become the latest organization to join the Open Compute Project (OCP), an industry effort to develop common standards around data center hardware. The company joins OPC as a Platinum-level member, which means it will have to pay $40,000 annually, donate 3,120 hours of engineer time and contribute at least one item of intellectual property to the project.
New facility in Wallonia will offer cheap access to the Etix networkEuropean data center operator Etix Everywhere and Belgian IT specialist NRB have joined forces to build a 900 square meter colocation facility in Liège, Wallonia. The data center, codenamed BelgiumDC, is already under construction, expected to offer 900 kVA of power when complete. The first phase of the project will be open to customers in October.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
