Abstract

The Modular Microserver Datacentre (M2DC) project targets the development of a new class of energy-efficient TCO-optimized appliances with built-in efficiency and dependability enhancements. The appliances will be easy to integrate with a broad ecosystem of management software and fully software defined to enable optimization for a variety of future demanding applications in a cost-effective way. The highly flexible M2DC server platform will enable customization and smooth adaptation to various types of applications, while advanced management strategies and system efficiency enhancements (SEE) will be used to improve energy efficiency, performance, security, and reliability. Data center capable abstraction of the underlying heterogeneity of the server is provided by an OpenStack-based middleware. In this chapter, we focus in particular on the architecture of the server platform including a dedicated high-speed, low latency communication infrastructure, give a short introduction into the software stack including thermal management strategies, and provide an overview of the targeted applications.
