Data Center Download: From Cloud Computing to the Open Data Center and Exascale HPC @ IDF2011

It’s nearly October, and that means another fantastic IDF occurred!   Wait… how do I know, you ask?  Aside  from the great attendance in the data center technical sessions that covered everything  from cloud computing to HPC, I can tell by all of the great blogs, podcasts,  and videos that came out of IDF! We also received great questions from visitors  to the Data Center Pavilion on Intel  Cloud Builders. Here is your Data Center Download for IDF 2011:
