1&1 Dynamic Cloud Server

Hosted Windows and Linux servers that let you pay for CPU, RAM and storage by the hour — for small business not just enterprise: is a Dynamic Cloud Server a good way to scale a business web service?Usually, when you pay for a hosted server, you pick the specification you think you need and pay for extra bandwidth if you need it.

Greening the data centre (for fun and profit)

There’s a lot to be said for the modern data centre movement, and the trend away from power-hungry inefficient racks of under-utilised servers. Virtualisation lets you pack more and more functionality onto each CPU, saving space and power (at the expense of a little more cooling, or a slightly shorter server lifespan).

AMD developing eight-core Bulldozer-based CPU for 2011 release

AMD's new chip architecture, dubbed Bulldozer, is being highly anticipated next year as the company prepares to match Intel's forthcoming Sandy Bridge processors. Included in AMD's plans, according to Fudzilla, is an eight-core CPU that will be aimed at the server market, but that will no doubt be of interest to performance desktop buyers as well.

What does storage virtualisation really mean?

Virtualisation has moved from being a shiny new technology concept to a sticky business that involves getting your hands dirty with some real technology and business problems. But while server virtualisation is now a well-known technique for saving money by increasing server CPU utilisation, storage virtualisation remains a hazy concept.

100% CPU utilization

Fellow ZDNet blogger, Paul Murphy, warned recently against using virtualization technologies to really max out CPU utilization. The temptation, of course, is to assume that a server running at only 30% of capacity is being wasted.

A comparison of quad-core server CPUs

For anyone looking to buy a workstation or server CPU, quad-core CPUs have become mainstream. Therefore it's important to know what you're getting for the money so I've compiled a chart with general purpose computing performance using the SPEC CPU database with the highest scores as of December 28, 2007.

Intel unleashes Quad Core at IDF Fall 2006

For now, even the AMD four socket advantage in the Server market has melted away since it's about half the price to build a two socket quad core server compared to a four socket dual core AMD server. AMD will come out with their quad core CPUs that come on a single die in the middle of 2007 promising to consume no more power than the existing dual core processors which should be slightly lower than Intel's current quad core CPUs. The problem is that Intel is not standing still and Intel will be releasing 50 watt quad core processors in the first quarter of 2007 before AMD even begins to ship their first quad core CPU.

Hardware DEP saves day again on VML IE exploit

This is the third time in a row that hardware-enforced DEP has preemptively protected me from a zero-day Internet Explorer exploit. The first time I verified this was with the WMF exploit, the second time was a zero-day IE exploit this March. Therefore I highly recommend people enable DEP protection in Windows XP SP2 and Windows Server 2003 SP1 and never buy a CPU without NX or XD capability.

AMD dominates 4 and 8 socket at Linux World

Cutting sockets while maintaining the same number of CPU cores is extremely valuable in the server market because it can cut your software licensing in half while maintaining the same performance. Microsoft SQL and IBM DB2 (on x86 platform) for example charge their licenses based on the number of CPU sockets and not based on the number of CPU cores. Quad-core computing can cut server hardware costs and software licensing in half but the software savings is far more significant because software often costs 2 to 10 times more than the hardware it's running on.
