FROM THE DESK OF TIM KITTILA
Slow Down to Speed Up

As a mechanical engineer, I'm eager to design a data center and asses how it can be effectively cooled. In some cases, data center experts forget to allow time for our IT counterparts to inform the design that drives the overall success of the Data Center. Same can be said for electrical engineers, contractors, vendors and others that claim the "data center expert" title.  


 At the end of the day, the true goal is to bring together facilities, IT and the executive suite to right size the Data Center, and ensure it meets each team's goals and objectives. This is no easy endeavor, but requires our team to "slow down" to allow customers to "speed up".

ATV Tips with Tom: Safety Advice for a fun, yet safe summer

Summer in the state of Minnesota provides outdoor enthusiasts with a number of exciting hobbies that almost anyone can enjoy.  For some, a quiet day of fishing or hiking provides all the entertainment one needs.  But for those who prefer a rush of adrenaline along with their outdoor experience,  All-Terrain Vehicles (ATV's) have been the common selection.  

 

FATHERS DAY FEATURE
Four Fathers of Parallel were asked, "What advice would you give to an expecting father"?
 
Charlie Gerth, Father of 2

"Be patient and enjoy everyday they grow up way too fast. "

Nate Clyde, Father of 7

"In America, we have a tremendous entrepreneurial spirit - we make tremendous sacrifices, dream great dreams and move mountains. And we also value our families most of all. But we seem to have a disconnect between those two ideas. I would challenge all new fathers to see their family as their main enterprise - define a vision, think big, take risks, make sacrifices. There is no greater achievement."

Josh Olson, Father of 2
"Becoming a dad is probably the single greatest thing I've ever done in my life. It's a wonderfully enriching experience that's made me a better person overall. Off the record...Parallel has allowed me the opportunity to provide for my kids and to be able to be there for them during milestones of their own. Being able to spend time with them and have a company that supports that is a wonderful thing."

Kim Baumgartner, Father of 3

"Having a daughter going into her senior year of college, a son entering college in the fall, and my youngest daughter entering high school... All that I can say for advice is to enjoy every minute of it.  Time flies, and the kids move on with their own lives fast.  Do your best to prepare them for the future, by showing your kids by example what hard work, common sense, and respect means for you in today's society."
