A Look Inside A Microserver-Powered Data Center
March 22nd, 2011 By: Rich Miller
What does a microserver-driven data center look like? This morning Dell’s Data Center Solutions group rolled out a new line of microservers optimized for web hosting companies. Microservers provide groups of dedicated compute nodes for scenarios where multi-core CPU architecture and extensive virtualization aren’t effective solutions. As Dell’s microserver design evolved, one of the primary customers for its offering was Online.net, a large hosting company based in France. Each system runs one OS and app per server, has one 1 CPU per server and features 12 servers per chassis (see Barton George’s blog post for more details). The end result is a data center with an unusual appearance. It takes a couple of minutes to warm up, but gets interesting at about the 1:30 mark. This video runs about 11 minutes.

wow. very nice!
It looks so tidy!
Do they really put 40 servers per rack? Have a look at minute 8:10. Now, that’s high density!
