time, and save money by better utilizing their existing infrastructure.

• Supported tests – Wiremap, length, cable signal performance, digital toner, analog

However, this is not all. They are using storage efficiency technologies, such as data duplication. Buying servers that allow centres to maximise space and power and also consolidate applications.

Is this the fuel cell that will crack the code to the data center?

Gigaom

The controversial idea of using fuel cells to power data centers has been under discussion for the past couple of years. Probably the most famous project out there is Apple’s 10 MW fuel cell farm, which uses 50 fuel cells from Silicon Valley startup Bloom Energy installed next to its east coast data center in North Carolina.

But Microsoft is just starting to kick off a pretty unusual and innovative project using fuel cells and data centers that could some day draw a lot of interest. Microsoft is working with young startup Redox Power Systems and using a grant from the Department of Energy’s ARPA-E program, to test out Redox’s fuel cells to power individual server racks within a data center.

A Redox Power Systems fuel cell is shown off at the ARPA-E 2015 Summit. A Redox Power Systems fuel cell is shown off at the ARPA-E 2015 Summit.

Facebook’s latest homemade hardware is a 128-port modular switch

Gigaom

Facebook has been building its own servers and storage gear for years, and last June announced its first-ever networking gear in the form of a top-of-rack switch called “Wedge.” On Wednesday, the company furthered its networking story with a new switch platform called “6-pack,” which is essentially a bunch of Wedge switches crammed together inside a single box.

The purpose of 6-pack was to build a modular platform that can handle the increase in network traffic that Facebook’s recently deployed “Fabric” data center architecture enables. The Facebook blog post announcing 6-pack goes into many more details of the design, but here is the gist:

“It is a full mesh non-blocking two-stage switch that includes 12 independent switching elements. Each independent element can switch 1.28Tbps.
