A new computing fabric replacing today’s blade servers and a “pod” approach to building data centers are two of the most disruptive technologies that will affect the enterprise data center in the next few years.A new computing fabric to replace today’s blade servers and a “pod” approach to building data centers are two of the most disruptive technologies that will affect the enterprise data center in the next few years, Gartner said at its annual data center conference Wednesday.Data centers increasingly will be built in separate zones or pods, rather than as one monolithic structure, Gartner analyst Carl Claunch said in a presentation about the Top 10 disruptive technologies affecting the data center.Those zones or pods will be built in a fashion similar to the modular data centers sold in large shipping containers equipped with their own cooling systems. But data center pods don’t have to be built within actual containers. The distinguishing features are that zones are built with different densities, reducing initial costs, and each pod or zone is self-contained with its own power feeds and cooling, Claunch says.Cooling costs are minimized because chillers are closer to heat sources; and there is additional flexibility because a pod can… Read full this story
