Has no one thought of burning backups to some DVD's and bury them in the backyard at Wikileaks?
After several years of trying, graphics processing units (GPUs) are beginning to win over the major server vendors. Dell and IBM are the first tier-one server vendors to adopt GPUs as server processors for high-performance computing (HPC). Here’s a manager’s view of the hardware change and what it might mean to your data center. (Hint: faster servers.)
Scientist at Intel Labs have come up with a way to reuse old servers and cluster them in such a way as to turn them into data centre routers.
The boffins, Gianluca Iannaccone and Sylvia Ratnasamy, have developed what they call “router bricks" for the reused servers which should save cash for IT departments. At the heart of the system is an open source software package called Click Router, developed at MIT a decade ago. This ties the servers together for their new roles in the data center.
"When Thecus asked me to take a look at their new N4200 small office NAS, I wasted no time agreeing to get the unit in for review. I had seen the press release and the email announcements and upon glancing over them could see right from the start that it was a little different than some of the other NAS appliances I reviewed in the past, but it was just another day at the office so to speak.
Technology developed by Iceotope, that wraps server components in synthetic modules of coolant, has been described by experts as "game changing"
UK company Iceotope has launched liquid-cooling technology, which it says surpasses what is achievable with purely water-based systems and could help cut data centre cooling costs from $788,400 (£469,446) to just $52,560.
