Predicting the Servers of the Next Decade

Initially, there were massive mainframes. Then, the desktop computers arrived, followed by rack mount pizza box servers, and ultimately blade servers. Whatâs next for server design, and just how do data center workers get ready for it?

Scientists have noted a fast pace of change is accelerating in the sector. The drive towards a lot more power efficient equipment has modified the data center setting, using a focus on not just utilizing less cooling, but managing it more precisely. That means that data centers are operating at warmer conditions, and using section containment and chassis design to optimize airflow to components that produce heat. This is good news for more and more businesses that rely on servers, cloud services, business internet and IT services.

Dramatically Different

The Senior Director of Data Centers for Google has claimed that servers are going to be obviously different in the next decades. In fact, he says we can't even image how they will look. Thus, it's important to not build any critical server infrastructure that assumes that servers will remain the same forever.


For a company like Google that has thousands of servers, what does that mean?


It means that Google is constantly research new technology and analyzing which technologies will end up being used in the future.


The development of clouds and companies offering it like Syntax cloud computing, and the huge data centers that support them has compelled designers and developers to think in other ways. As the cloud is a more efficient platform, it's easier to take a holistic approach to data centers rather than the building block view that was associated with the rack servers of the past.


Some scientist has seen the move in the direction of server density and packed racks can drive a inexpensive shift in the direction of design priorities more common in supercomputers and high-performance computing. For example, the interest of people in direct liquid cooling is strong, but the technology isn't still on par with what it should be.


In any case, it will be interesting to see how cloud computing, liquid cooling and other new technologies influence the progression of the server into the new era of mankind.
