Good for beginners of parallel computing. Feels like a report paper short and dense with statistics than a book There are a lot of insights into how Google operates, but it is a bit too short. .Free Pdf ⚖ The Datacenter as a Computer: An Introduction to the Design of Warehouse-Scale Machines ♷ As computation continues to move into the cloud, the computing platform of interest no longer resembles a pizza box or a refrigerator, but a warehouse full of computers These new large datacenters are quite different from traditional hosting facilities of earlier times and cannot be viewed simply as a collection of co located servers Large portions of the hardware and software resources in these facilities must work in concert to efficiently deliver good levels of Internet service performance, something that can only be achieved by a holistic approach to their design and deployment In other words, we must treat the datacenter itself as one massive warehouse scale computer WSe We describe the architecture of WSCs, the main factors influencing their design, operation, and cost structure, and the characteristics of their software base We hope it will be useful to architects and programmers of today s WSCs, as well as those of future many core platforms which may one day implement the equivalent of today s WSCs on a single board Table of Contents Introduction Workloads and Software Infrastructure Hardware Building Blocks Datacenter Basics Energy and Power Efficiency Modeling Costs Dealing with Failures and Repairs Closing Remarks
