Inspur NF8480M6 shows a performance-to-power ratio that is 52.4 percent higher than similarly configured systems. For a similar workload, the power consumption of Inspur NF8480M6 equals only 47.6 percent of the energy needed for other systems. For data centers with over one million servers, the adoption of full Inspur energy-saving servers equates to over $142 million (USD) of power saving per year. SPECpower—ssj 2008 is a SPEC-defined power-performance benchmark that uses the standard Java Development Kit (JDK) to calculate the overall server performance and the power consumption for each workload to generate a performance-to-power ratio. The SPECpower benchmark is the first industry-standard benchmark that evaluates the power and performance characteristics of single server and multi-node servers. It is used to compare power and performance among different servers and serves as a tool to improve server efficiency. The test result released by SPECpower is mandated by The United States Department of Energy’s (DOE) Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE) in their server certification programs. “With the large-scale application of 5G, cloud computing, and other emerging technologies, and the surging needs from users, data centers are set to grow with increasing power consumption.” said Alan Chang, deputy general manager of server product line at Inspur. To fully unleash the computing potential of Inspur servers, Inspur engineers optimized the design of server components and temperature monitor systems to maximize energy utilization.With more space reserved for CPU and memory and a larger cooling pad, Inspur NF8480M6 supports server components and configurations that consume more energy while lowering the power consumption of the fan by over 26 percent. Inspur NF8480M6 increases the CPU power consumption by nearly 23 percent and cooling performance by 22 percent.By adding temperature sensors to both the front panels and mounting ears of the server, Inspur NF8480M6 optimizes the temperature monitoring for the air inlet area and offers more accurate temperature control.Smart temperature control technology based on the PID algorithm enables fan control for specific segments to optimize temperature field and flow field. Variable-speed fan control based on the power or thermal readings makes sure that the temperature for all server components falls into the desired range. This also lowers the amount of electric current flows and power consumption of fans, which in turn saves the energy consumed by cooling.

Thermoviscous stability of ice-sheet flows

first_imgThe shallow-ice approximation is used to analyse the normal-mode stability of long-wavelength, thermally coupled, free-surface flows of glaciers and ice sheets along infinite flow sections. The viscosity of the ice changes with temperature, and the ice is also thermally coupled with the bedrock. An assumption of quasi-uniform flow, where the downstream flux of mass and energy is assumed to be constant over relatively short wavelengths, permits vertical advection due to accumulation to be considered. The assumption allows realistic representation of the vertical velocity distribution and temperature distributions within the modelled flow. Nevertheless, the linearized equations are formally independent of the assumption of quasi-uniform flow. The linearized equations are Fourier-transformed over the horizontal plane and an algebraic eigenvalue problem constructed which considers the Fourier-transforms of the vertically varying temperature and thickness. The dependence of the eigenvalues on wavenumber, both parallel and orthogonal to flow, accumulation rate, geothermal heat flux, surface temperature and slope is computed. Extensive linearly unstable regimes where the base is well below melting point are found, which correspond only approximately to negative slopes in the flux/thickness relationship (supercritical zones). The most unstable parts of these regimes have finite along-flow wavelength, and have very long transverse wavelength. These modes are found to be more unstable in two senses: (i) they bifurcate for lesser thicknesses; (ii) they have greater growth rates. All computed wave velocities of unstable modes were downslope. Less unstable modes with short and medium transverse wavelengths are found which excite the temperature field only. Time constants range between ten and one thousand years. There is no strong evidence for stream-pattern formation through a thermoviscous instability mechanism.last_img

NMC EAD Changes Command aboard Battleship Missouri Memorial

Edward M. Galvin relieved Capt. Michael J. Singleton as commanding officer during the official ceremony.During the ceremony, Capt. Mark Springer, Commander NMC and NMC Pacific, served as the guest speaker and Navy Chaplain Cmdr. Jeffery Logan, commander, Submarine Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet, provided the invocation. JBPHH Honors and Ceremonial Guard presented the colors.Singleton took command of NMC EAD Hawaii in April of 2012. As a commanding officer of the East Asia Division, he oversaw operations in support of fleet units and operational forces in the U.S. Pacific Fleet area of responsibility (AOR) with subsidiary detachments in Sasebo and Yokosuka as well as units in Guam, Okinawa, Atsugi and Misawa and Diego Garcia annex.Singleton began his carrier in the Navy in October 1976 as an enlisted Sailor, advancing in the service to a high-ranking officer. Over the years he actively participated in the Mustang Round-Up Limited Duty Officer and Chief Warrant Officer recruiting drives, leading by example, helping and guiding Sailors to success in their military careers. Sailors under his command praised him for his leadership.Singleton is planning to retire later this year, making NMC EAD Hawaii his last tour.According to Singleton, his relief is more than capable of doing the job.During presentation of awards, Springer presented Singleton with a Legion of Merit Medal for outstanding services and achievements. Upon receiving his award, Singleton, as his final act as a commanding officer, surprised two of his Sailors by awarding Logistics Specialist 1st Class Alvin Norman with the Navy/Marine Corps Commendation Medal, and Yeomen 2nd Class Ciatta Tucker with the Navy/Marine Corps Achievement Medal.In his farewell remarks, Singleton thanked his command and his Sailors and civilian employees, reiterating their importance to success of the command and the Navy as a whole.After the reading of official orders, Galvin said he was honored to relieve Singleton as commanding officer and promised the unit would continue to build on his legacy.Galvin also addressed the men and women of the command as their new leader.Galvin plans to dedicate his first steps as commanding officer to familiarizing with command functions and learning about its challenges, as well as establishing good rapport with Sailors and civilian employees under his leadership.NMC EAD Hawaii is responsible for ordnance delivery to ships, submarines and aviation squadrons based in Japan, Hawaii, Diego Garcia and Guam. Command’s mission is to provide command, control and administrative support to NMC EAD units and detachments, which provide quality and responsive logistics, expert technical and material support of ammunition management and ordnance system components to Fleet customer.[mappress]Press Release, August 18, 2014; Image: Wikimedia View post tag: News by topic Authoritieslast_img
