With the growing demand and adoption of cloud based Internet services, the computing performance of data centers has never been so demanding. This causes for the deployment unit for data centers to cease being on a server basis, or even a server farm basis, but hundreds of servers all in one container.
If the server stack of a service doesn’t measure up to the performance standards required, scale with another container full of hardware.
Major players in cloud computing, Google and Microsoft are already defining their data center’s architecture with this new order of greatness.
All with a constant concern for energy-saving and the environment.
