Running Scientific Data Centers: Five Underappreciated Challenges
Source: Tabor Communications
As data centers strive to add computational resources to meet the demands of their High Productivity Computing (HPC) applications, they encounter challenges that go well beyond their basic constraints. Tabor Research believes there are five primary challenges that are frequently underappreciated at the time of system acquisition, leading to inefficiencies or barriers to expansion. In this white paper Tabor Research examines each of these challenges and suggests frameworks for addressing these concerns in advance, before they become limiting factors for scientific data centers.
