The DCD team talks about CPUs, water cooling and promotional videos

This week on White Space, we welcome new DatacenterDynamics reporters Michael Hurley and Sebastian Moss.

Mike has been looking at Nokia’s investment in edge networks in Russia, through a partnership with the Skolkovo innovation hub near Moscow.

Meanwhile Seb was researching the new generation of ThunderX chips from Cavium, which build on what’s arguably the most successful ARM-based server chip family to date.

Intel has launched two families of CPUs, with E3 v5 designed for 4K video processing and E7 v4 for analytics, with every CPU able to support up to 3TB of RAM. This results in up to 24TB of memory per system – a limit which can be pushed even further through the use of node controllers.

We also have news on Dell’s Project Triton, a water-cooled server that challenges HPE’s Project Apollo on efficiency, and a brilliant data center video from G-Core and European Data Hub.
