Doing More with Less: Cooling Computers with Oil Pays Of

A consequence of doing useful work with computers is the production of heat. Every watt of energy that goes into a computer is converted to a watt of heat that needs to be removed, or else the computer will melt, burst into ames, or meet some other undesirable end. Most computer systems in data centers are cooled with air conditioning, while some high-performance systems use contained liquid cooling systems where cooling uid is typically piped into a cold plate or some other heat exchanger. Immersion cooling works by directly immersing IT equipment into a bath of cooling uid. The National Security Agency’s Laboratory for Physical Sciences (LPS) acquired and installed an oil-immersion cooling system in 2012 and has evaluated its pros and cons. Cooling computer equipment by using oil immersion can substantially reduce cooling costs; in fact, this method has the potential to cut in half the construction costs of future data centers.

The Immersion Cooled TSUBAME-KFC: From Exascale Prototype to The Greenest Supercomputer in The World

Modern supercomputer performance is principally limited by power. TSUBAME-KFC is a state-ofthe-art prototype for next-generation TSUBAME3.0 supercomputer and towards future exascale. In collaboration with Green Revolution Cooling (GRC) and others, TSUBAME-KFC submerges compute nodes configured with extremely high processor/component density, into non-toxic, low viscosity coolant with high 260 Celsius flash point, and cooled using ambient / evaporative cooling tower. This minimizes cooling power while all semiconductor components kept at low temperature to lower leakage current. Numerous off-line in addition to on-line power and temperature sensors are facilitated throughout and constantly monitored to immediately observe the effect of voltage/frequency control. As a result,TSUBAME-KFC achieved world No. 1 on the Green500 in Nov. 2013 and Jun. 2014, by over 20% c.f. the nearest competitors.

6 Ways Your CRM Is Failing You

The modern customer expects a lot — a response within the hour, a personalized buying journey and an account manager who anticipates their wants and needs. It’s no wonder that the demand for customer relationship management tools is growing every year. It gives businesses that competitive edge of getting in there first and really wowing your leads while they’re hot. Nevertheless, a lot of CRMs don’t deliver the dazzling ROI you’re expecting and working with them becomes tedious.

Five Steps for Uncovering Data at Risk for GDPR

Enacted in April 2016, the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been called the most important change in data privacy regulation in decades. Now, it’s sweeping regulations are being enforced by the EU.

GDPR introduces a fundamental change in the relationship between businesses of all sizes and personal data regarding EU citizens that is collected and stored regardless of where your business – or data- is maintained. And, GDPR isn’t just an IT problem. It impacts risk, privacy, security and compliance teams, all of whom may be audited.

Want to get started with GDPR assessment? IBM Security Guardium Analyzer is a purpose-built, SaaS-based tool that can help with all of the above. Available in the IBM Cloud, Guardium Analyzer scans your data – on-premises or cloud– and its next generation classification engine delivers efficient scans that produces a visual guide prioritizing which data might be at risk. Guardium Analyzer shows you the potential vulnerabilities tied to the databases scanned as well as which sensitive data that you need to protect and begin the remediation process.

DBAs Face New Challenges: Trend in Database Administration

To gain insight into the evolving challenges for DBAs, Quest commissioned Unisphere Research to survey DBAs and those responsible for the management of the corporate data management infrastructure. The results are in and the thought-provoking findings are now available.

Among the key findings are:

  • Structured data under management continues to grow at a substantial rate, requiring DBAs to manage both more database instances and a wider variety of relational database management systems.
  • Cloud technology plays a significant role in hosting databases and that role will continue to grow. Cloud approaches will have the greatest impact on database administration over the next three years.
  • NoSQL platforms represent a smaller but important slice of the data management infrastructure.
  • Database management tools have reduced the time some DBAs must invest in some routine operations, allowing them to expand their roles in other areas. Database performance continues to be the top priority for DBAs.
  • Many DBAs are increasingly involved in application development.

Accelerate Database Efficiency with SQL Performance Investigator (PI)

Get a wealth of information at a fraction of the impact of conventional collection methods. Foglight’s SQL Performance Investigator (SQL PI) ensures optimal database performance with comprehensive database, storage and virtualization monitoring, along with advanced workload analytics. It integrates transaction workload investigations with database resource monitoring for a seamless workflow. While database resource monitoring ensures that database components operate within their limits – and alerts database administrators (DBAs) when they’re over-extended – transaction workload analysis measures and analyzes the SQL that connects users to resources, enabling management of database service levels.
