Data Center

Carnegie Mellon University next month is opening its Data Center Observatory, which the Pittsburgh school describes as “

the cornerstone of our pursuit of more cost-effective, robust, automated and power-conscious data centers.” 

The school will use the center for its production network and for research. On the research side, Carnegie Mellon will measure things such as power consumption and heat, management time, resource utilization patterns and network and system uptime.  The school plans to develop tools to address shortcomings in these areas as well.Bob Brown,
