Data center bits and pieces ….

I was just reading a few interesting things about the NSA Utah data center. Out of a 1 million sq ft facility, only 100,000 sq ft of actual data center space? I can’t wait to see the PUE for this sucker :).

After reading about low latency financial system access , I’m sure this would provide an unfair advantage to microsecond fast electronic traders. I just have no idea what you’d ever do about it (Mandate a minimum ping rule?).

Reading today about Intel’s low power microserver. I just can’t see this being anywhere near as efficient as virtual machines and since when is whacking 2 cores off a 4 core CPU to reduce power consumption earthshattering news? Gain the power saving without crippling the CPU and then I’ll be impressed.
