I was just reading this post about a course on data center architecture. Is there REALLY anyone out there deploying 1 million servers in a single facility? In terms of 1u servers, that’s more than 22,000 45U cabinets or 400 modular data center containers (at 2500 servers per container).
From this post on network management resolutions for 2010 comes the thought of the day: “…an ounce of problem prevention is worth at least a pound of frantic troubleshooting cure”. Sage words for us all to live by.
