Liquid cooling

Liquid cooling is a method of cooling data center equipment using a water-based cooling system, rather than air-based cooling. Liquid cooling can be used to cool both the data center itself and the individual components within it, such as servers, storage systems, and networking equipment. Liquid cooling is more effective than air cooling at removing … Read more

Memory coherence

Memory coherence is a memory management technique that ensures that data stored in memory is consistent across all devices in a system. Data consistency means that data is correct and up-to-date across all devices. Memory coherence is important for systems with multiple processors or devices that share memory. Multiprocessor systems need a way to ensure … Read more

Serial presence detect (SPD)

Serial presence detect (SPD) is a feature of many computer memory modules that allows the module manufacturer to store information about the module on a small serial EEPROM chip. This information can include the module’s size, speed, voltage requirements, timings, and other data. When a memory module is inserted into a motherboard, the SPD EEPROM … Read more
