I`m trying to understand data centers. The fists idea that comes to your mind is that the entire data center is handled by a single server, one OS manages all incoming requests from outside. But that`s not possible in practice, even with parallel computing there is a very limited number of things an OS can do at one time. So you need a lot of OS instances, each with its own separate CPU and RAM. The problem is user data is saved in a sea of Hard Drives. A server (OS instance) needs access to all of the HD`s, so the CPU HD relationship on a server is different from the one on a desktop computer. A desktop is only physically wired to one, two or three HD`s which is different from several severs/OS instances sharing a pool of HD`s.
