Infrastructure Challenges For Cloud Platforms

One of the topic areas we'd like to talk about is the impact of power and cooling trends on hyperscale operations.  As the size of scale-out platforms grows ever larger, server designs continue to drive for increased density. In this first post to our power and cooling section, Drew Schulke of the DCS Services team takes a look at some of the factors impacting organizations that house high-density systems in a co-location facility.  If you house a large compute pool based on blades or other high-density solutions in a colo facility please take a look at Drew's post and tell us what you're seeing.
