Faster photons could enable total data security solution

05 September 2018

Researchers at Sheffield University utilised a phenomenon called the ‘Purcell Effect’ to produce light pulses very rapidly and transmit data that’s claimed to guarantee security.

Researchers at Sheffield University utilised a phenomenon called the ‘Purcell Effect’ to produce light pulses very rapidly and transmit data that’s claimed to guarantee security.

Researchers at the University of Sheffield claim to have solved a key puzzle in quantum physics that could help to make data transfer totally secure.

Each pulse of light used to transfer data along fibre optic cables contains millions of photons which, according to the researchers, means that a portion of these could, in theory, be intercepted without detection.

Kao claims Europe’s first DC to meet OCP principles

04 September 2018

Kao Data has been working with the OCP (Open Compute Project) Foundation in a pilot programme to make its Kao Data London One facility OCP-Ready.

The firm’s recently completed London One facility (see News, May issue) has completed the first two steps of the programme, joining the Data Centre Facility (DCF) project within the OCP and becoming the first data centre to self-audit against Open Compute’s checklist for compliance with its engineering principles.

The process will be complete when Kao Data presents its results during the OCP Regional Summit that takes place in Amsterdam in early October.
