CW+: Leverage memory technology to cut data centre power consumption

Within modern data centers, virtualization has become the means of choice when it comes to operating efficient server infrastructures for cloud and enterprise computing. On an individual system level, this translates into a massive increase of DRAM deployments per server. Hence the DRAM’s share in system power consumption and heat generation for non‐persistent memory is much greater than has been known in the past. Leading‐edge DRAM technology offering lower energy consumption and less heat dissipation per Gigabyte should deliver significant benefits at the system and data‐center levels with regards to energy consumption for the computing system (regarded as primary energy consumption) and cooling (secondary energy consumption). Within this project we have analyzed the potential leverage of leading‐edge memory technology in terms of the power savings for overall complete data center. We have selected two identical state of the art server systems with an identical configuration including major components such as power supply, CPU, fan and Hard Disk Drive (HDD) storage.
