Avoiding the $25 Million Server

Avoiding the $25 Million Server
In this paper Sine Nomine Associates has analyzed the problem of functional density in a modern data center, considering traditional rack-mount discrete servers, new-generation blade servers, and virtual servers on both Intel and System z mainframe platforms.

This paper presents the results of deploying each of these designs in a hypothetical urban-area data center, owned by a single large enterprise or shared by multiple medium-sized enterprises (as would be the case in a hosting provider). This scenario was selected to illuminate an emerging constraint on Fortune 500 IT: the fundamental operational limits of existing high-value data center space.

HP BladeSystem Cooling White Paper

HP BladeSystem Cooling White Paper
Hewlett-Packard Corporation has introduced a line of blade server products with a radically redesigned power and cooling system. According to HP advertising, the “HP Thermal Logic”power and cooling system represents a new approach that significantly reduces the power consumption and required airflow for data centers requiring fully-featured, high-density servers.

This paper presents a laboratory study comparing “HP Thermal Logic” blade server power and cooling design versus a competitive blade platform as well as two traditional 1U rack servers, and evaluates the power consumption and cooling performance of each system under a workload that simulates a light and heavily-utilized data center.
