Confusion with Cluster[edit]

I believe this article should be reviewed because it leads to confusion between Farm and Cluster, which are not exactly the same thing! A cluster is for redundancy (active-passive model) or performance (active-active model), whereas a farm is a group of servers that are working simultaneously to load balance between them.

Same as Data Center[edit]

Shouldn't this be merged with Data center? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.181.114.145 (talk) 07:35, 15 July 2009 (UTC)


Please don't merge it...as a student, I would have had a difficult time of finding this. Keep it simple.... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.95.71.99 (talk) 04:17, 4 February 2010 (UTC)
Actually both titles can be redirected to the same article. I propose that it should be merged. § Music Sorter § (talk) 07:06, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
Um, no...a server farm and a data center are not the same thing...not physically, and certainly not conceptually. It would be highly inaccurate to define them as such. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 204.86.71.226 (talk) 19:14, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

Article needs clean up[edit]

This article is supposed to be about server farms, yet more than 50% of the article talks about details of the data centers that house them...details that would be irrelevant to someone researching server farms...as simple link to the data center article would suffice. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 204.86.71.226 (talk) 19:20, 23 March 2012 (UTC)
