The latest server software, hardware trends in the IT industry have always been subject to change. These trends influence organizations’ strategies, operations, and investments in a wide variety of ways.
SERVER Technology: Scalable processor
Processor: AMD has EPYC and Intel Xeon Scalable processor architecture. AMD has more than 8 cores on a single and connects a significant number of lanes to it. But Intel has more lanes compared to AMD.
Memory: RAM upgraded from DDR4-2400 to DDR4-2666 on AMD Infinity Fabric.
Storage: HPE Cloudline CL3150 G4 Server fit 24x NVMe devices into a 1U form factor.
STORAGE Technology: SSD m.3 Flash memory
In Flash memory, NAND behind a controller is m.2 form factor for the datacenter. To minimize controller costs, bigger form factors are better.
Samsung M.3 SSD Which allows power loss protection circuitry as well as larger capacities 16TB drive capacity for 1PB PetaByte per U in the datacenter. With M.3 SSD, Server Capacity Could increase 1.3 times.
Each drive is also capable of 500K read IOPS so you will be limited by PCIe switch back-haul links to servers. At 16W each 1PB of raw storage in 64 drives will consume only about 1kW.
NETWORKING Technology: NVMe Over Fabrics
Storage NVMe SSDs are x4 devices so networking is starting to catch up with maximum throughput NVMe over fabrics using Intel Omni-Path 100Gbps fabric and an Intel Optane PCIe SSD running 70/30 random 4K workloads over the fabric.
