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…

An Improved Architecture for High-Efficiency, High-Density Data Centers
Data center power and cooling infrastructure worldwide wastes more than 60,000,000 megawatt-hours per year of electricity that does no useful work powering IT equipment. This represents an enormous
Data Center Power Requirements: Measurements From Silicon Valley
This paper examines some of the reasons why power requirements at data centers are overstated and adds actual measurements and the analysis of real-world data to the public policy debate over how much energy these facilities use.
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.
