Abstract

Datacenters are growing at unprecedented speeds fueled by the demand on global IT services, investments in massive data analytics and economies of scale. Meanwhile, conventional silicon technologies laying the foundation for digital platforms, however, have dramatically slowed down in efficiency and density scaling in recent years.
The latter, now referred to as the post-Moore era, has given rise to a plethora of emerging processing, storage and communication technologies presenting exciting new challenges and abundant opportunities from algorithms to platforms for server designers. Nevertheless, the post-Moore era ultimately means that a sustained or growing demand on IT would lead to more Infrastructure with a commensurate increase in emissions requiring not only higher overall efficiency holistically but also technologies to bring renewables and minimize the end-to-end energy flow in datacenters.
