Do low-cost microservers have a place in datacenters in the future? These diminutive, scaled-back servers can be packed into clusters to save space, energy and money. Can they handle the tasks of a busy datacenter?
Tech Pro Research, which is TechRepublic's premium content sister publication, is conducting a survey to find out about the use of microservers now and in the future.The survey focuses on the following areas:
- Are microservers a significant innovation?
- Future plans for microservers
- Reasons for using/not using microservers
- Where microservers are being used
- Preferred vendors
- Microserver management
Those who participate in the survey will have the option to provide their email address for a free copy of the resulting research report, which will publish in April. This research report is normally available only to Tech Pro Research subscribers.
