Solving Eight Constraints of Today’s Data Center

data center cooling

With the growth of big data, cloud and high performance computing, demands on data centers around the world are expanding every year. Unfortunately, these demands are coming up against significant opposition in the form of operating constraints, capital constraints, and sustainability goals. In this article, we look at 8 of these constraints and how direct-to-chip liquid cooling is solving them.

Benefits of RackCDU D2C for High Performance Computing

From bio-engineering and climate studies to big data and high frequency trading, HPC is playing an even greater role in today’s society. Without the power of HPC, the complex analysis and data driven decisions that are made as a result would be impossible. Because these super computers and HPC clusters are so powerful, they are expensive to cool, use massive amounts of energy, and can require a great deal of space.

Open Computing Drives Innovation and Efficiency

open-compute-project

The Open Compute Project Foundation was created to design the most efficient server, storage and related designs for the next generation of data centers in an open and collaborative development model. By sharing designs that maximize density, minimize power consumption and deliver expected performance, completely new computing environments can be developed, free from the limitations of legacy thinking.

Going from the Lab to the Data Center

Genomic Sequencing

In the late 1980s, genomic sequencing began to shift from wet lab work to a computationally intensive science; by end of the 1990s this trend was in full swing. The application of computer science and high performance computing (HPC) to these biological problems became the normal mode of operation for many molecular biologists.

Agenda Posted for Open Fabrics Workshop, March 15-18 in Monterey

Today DDN announced continued growth in the HPC market. For the sixth consecutive year, DataDirect Networks has landed more than two-thirds of identifiable sites among the world’s 500 fastest computers.

Virtualization in the Cloud

HPC Cloud

One of the best ways to realize the full performance benefits of virtualization is to make it available through a private cloud. The VMware vCloud Suite realizes operational efficiency through policy-driven operations. By providing simplified operations management, the cloud solution drives greater resource utilization and staff productivity.
