Its good to see articles on events like this, but a realy pity that the 'featured comments' have been placed to obscure some of the pictures!

Facebook's Prineville, Ore. facilities manager worked on a Bluetooth link to report stats from an individual server. But a more ambitious effort--that won the prize--worked on a sensor network to report details from many servers. I have no other info on it, though.

Very interesting slideshow. Is there any more details? I'm particularly interested in the "Servers get unwired".

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
