Server Farm | 伺服器農場

  • 伺服器農場是什麼?
    伺服器農場又稱伺服器叢集,指的是數台伺服器(可能多達數千台)集合在相同位置,藉此提供更好的功能性和可及性。把伺服器放在一起有助於管理者進行中央監控及達成規模經濟效益,如果單一系統發生故障,其他伺服器可協助分擔工作。

    伺服器農場和運算叢集有些共同點,但伺服器農場的每一台伺服器都能分開執行不同工作,而運算叢集有如單一系統,多台伺服器互相連接協力完成一個任務。「伺服器農場」和「數據中心」兩個名詞有時被混著用,但一般而言,伺服器農場是將很多伺服器集合放在一起,數據中心則是容納伺服器農場的特殊場所,搭配散熱、通風和滅火等外部設備,提供全年無休、高可用性的服務。

  • 為何需要?
    實務上,將伺服器集中放在一起合乎邏輯,因為這麼做便於資訊部門維修和保護伺服器安全、亦可降低營運成本。如果伺服器互相通聯並安裝叢集管理軟體,伺服器農場也能扮演運算叢集的角色。

    高效能運算(HPC)邊緣運算盛行的當下,伺服器農場可發揮空前未有的運算效能,且不局限於傳統的數據中心,除了公司總部架設伺服器農場之外,亦可在偏遠地區安裝小型伺服器農場處理附近的運算工作。

  • 技嘉的特色
    無論您要擴充現有的伺服器農場、或是從無到有打造新的伺服器農場,技嘉提供豐富的產品組合供您挑選,H系列高密度伺服器G系列GPU協同運算伺服器特別適用於高效能運算和平行運算S系列儲存伺服器推薦用於數據儲存,泛用的R系列機架式伺服器便於水平擴充E系列邊緣伺服器專為邊緣運算所設計,支援四顆第三代 Intel® Xeon® 可擴充處理器和AMD EPYC™處理器皆有相對應的伺服器產品。

    除此之外,技嘉提供領先業界的冷卻技術,能確保伺服器農場免於過熱,除了智慧風扇調節設定之外,液體冷卻技術備受矚目,主要分為直接水冷(DLC)浸沒式冷卻德國航太中心採用技嘉DLC解決方案建造環保數據中心,而嶄新的浸沒式冷卻技術透過不導電液體直接散熱,兩種液體冷卻方式都能大幅降低能源費用。
