Wireless Data Centers Could Save Energy, Cost Less to Operate

Computer scientists at Cornell University have come up with a wireless design for cloud data centers that they say performs better while greatly reducing energy consumption and costs.

The energy-saving Cornell design relies on two major differences from conventional data centers. One is a 60 gigahertz wireless transceiver that was developed by Georgia Tech and based on an inexpensive chip technology. It can transmit 10 meters from the source and without interfering with nearby activity. The second major difference is the shape and layout of the servers themselves.
