Designing and managing open-source servers for cloud-scale data centers

Kushagra Vaid, GM, Server Engineering, Cloud and Enterprise Division , Microsoft

The uptake of cloud is driving the need for mega scale public clouds. Designing and operating such large infrastructures requires not only significant investments in datacenters, servers, networking, and software, but also new methods for handling technology updates, supply chains, management, and maintenance. The aim is to produce higher efficiency, lower overall TCO, and more automated operations. Several years of actual experience with megascale clouds has led to major insight into server requirements. Much of this effort is applicable to typical data centers, and reference designs and other intellectual property are openly available through organisations such as the Open Compute.
