Startup Makes Liquid Cooling an Immersive Experience

Aug 31, 2010 |

There’s nothing like a blazing hot summer to focus one’s attention on the best ways to keep cool. That goes for datacenter operators as well, who are equally worried about keeping their servers properly chilled. While there is no shortage of innovative cooling solutions being proffered by various vendors, a new liquid immersion cooling solution from startup Green Revolution Cooling could end up being the best of them all.

Behind Iceland’s Green Cloud

Aug 17, 2010 |

An interview with Icelandic cloud provider GreenQloud’s CEO. The new company is a “provider of the world’s first truly green public compute cloud” but some take issue with the “first” designation and wonder about storing data on a volcanic island–even if the costs might be lower and the feeling “greener.”

The Coming ‘C’ Change in Datacenters

Jun 15, 2010 |

The good folks at the Uptime Institute estimate that datacenter CO2 emissions will quadruple between 2010 and 2020; also that annual global datacenter CO2 emissions are already on par with the CO2 emissions of the airline industry, or even entire countries. Maybe we should put datacenters in airplanes and keep all the CO2 flying around.

Back to the Future: Solid-State Storage in Cloud Computing

May 28, 2010 |

Solid-state devices based on Flash and PCIe are emerging as a new class of enterprise storage option — Tier-0. Tier-0 is an optimized storage tier specifically for high performance workloads, which can benefit the most from using flash memory.

Focus on Distributed Computing at Microsoft Research

May 7, 2010 |

Microsoft Research is simplifying applications written to work with a small amount of data hosted on a local client machine to data center scale, running it on HPC clusters or in a public cloud

Startup Takes Aim at Performance-Killing Vibration in Datacenter

Jan 19, 2010 |

All that noise and vibration you experience in the datacenter is not just annoying; it’s also killing the performance of your hard disk drives. So says Green Platform CEO Gus Malek-Madani, who thinks he has developed an innovative rack design that will reclaim storage I/O performance and, in the process, save datacenters billions of dollars.

Research Project Limits Computer Power Consumption

Patented algorithm designed to minimize energy use in datacenters.

The Cloud Computing Revolution Will Not Be Televised

Aug 19, 2009 |

Nick Carr is wrong: There will be no ‘big switch.’

SGI Sticks to Its Roadmap, But It’s the End of the Line for the Itanium Supers

Jul 22, 2009 |

It’s been just a little over two months since Rackable Systems acquired SGI and merged the two product lines. From all appearances, it has been a fairly smooth transition. A lot of that has to do with the fact that the new company has left both sets of product offerings intact, although the future “Ultraviolet” system will change that somewhat.
