Data centres form a key part of the infrastructure upon which a variety of information technology services are built. They provide the capabilities of centralized repository for storage, management, dissemination and networking of data and information organized around a particular body of knowledge or pertaining to a particular business. The increasing demand for data storage and compute resources has driven the growth of large data centres: the massive server farms that run many of our present…

The cost of a cloud: research problems in data center networks

This work examines the costs of cloud service data centers today and proposes (1) joint optimization of network and data center resources, and (2) new systems and mechanisms for geo-distributing state.

Virtualization Implementation Model for Cost Effective & Efficient Data Centers

The proposed model helps Data Center managers to properly implement virtualization technology in their data centers to make them green and energy efficient so as to ensure that IT infrastructure contributes as little as possible to the emission of greenhouse gases.

Building Enterprise Information Architectures: Reengineering Information Systems

This presentation discusses the business approach to Enterprise Information Architecture Design, and the business owner's view of the design, from the perspective of a business owner.

An Improved Architecture for High-Efficiency, High-Density Data Centers

The principles of a new, commercially available data center architecture that can be implemented today to dramatically improve the electrical efficiency of data centers are described.

Understanding and Designing New Server Architectures for Emerging Warehouse-Computing Environments

A new solution that incorporates volume non-server-class components in novel packaging solutions, with memory sharing and flash-based disk caching, has promise, with a 2X improvement on average in performance-per-dollar for the benchmark suite.

Free at What Cost? Cloud Computing Privacy Under the Stored Communications Act

It is concluded that the advertising supported business model embraced by many cloud computing providers will not qualify for the SCA’s privacy protections and the lack of privacy protections in cloud computing is unlikely to be addressed anytime soon.

The World’s Technological Capacity to Store, Communicate, and Compute Information

An inventory of the world’s technological capacity from 1986 to 2007 reveals the evolution from analog to digital technologies, and the majority of the authors' technological memory has been in digital format since the early 2000s.

Server virtualization architecture and implementation

From its inception on the mainframe to distributed servers on x86, the virtual machine has matured and will play an increasing role in systems management.
