When Will We Achieve Exascale?

Let’s talk about the future of computing, specifically, the future of exascale supercomputing. Andrew Donoghue did a very nice write-up on the recent DCD Zettastructure session that focused on this very topic. And, instead of repeating his good work, this blog will focus in on a specific point that I made during the panel in response to the feasibility of powering an exascale machine.

Data: A Growing Value -Added Sector In The Icelandic Energy Economy

Economies overly dependent on a limited number of industries risk putting too many eggs in a single basket. Iceland has therefore been striving to find additional outlets for its abundant sources of renewable electricity, One potential outlet is the planned development of a large undersea transmission line to the United Kingdom, but that won’t occur for many years. Step up data centers...

The Era of Satellite IT is Coming

We are coming into an age where the sky will be full of eyes and ears, collecting data, and moving it to and from any point on the planet. Satellites resources are steadily moving from mainframe-style to cloud access anyone can use. The impact to data centers will be in at least three areas, including information storage, Big Data processing, and connectivity.

The extraordinary lengths Internet giants are having to take to guarantee power

Over the past few months, three or four news stories have crossed my desk that make me think we could be at a major tipping point for the data center industry. The problem is, from what I’m reading, it’s tipping in the wrong direction, and for possibly the wrong reasons.
