Summary

Modern datacenters with thousands of servers and multi-megawatt power budgets form the backbone of our digital universe. ln this course, we will survey a broad and comprehensive spectrum of datacenter design topics from workloads, to server architecture and infrastructure.

Content

The course wil use the primer from ClayPool lecture series on Warehouse-Scale Computing by Barrosso and Hoelzle, and technical research papers from recent years in venues corresponding to the topic. The course will be run as a seminar series with student presentations followed by an in-class discussion. The students will be graded based on presentations and short reviews written for each reading assignment.
