The continuous growth of the Internet, and the data volumes associated to it, put severe pressure on the computational, storage and networking resources available in to- day's data-centers. The stringent power budgets and the difficult expansion of current Internet communication infrastructures necessitates the design of new server architectures, programming models and run-time systems. In this paper, we present promising options in the design of energy-efficient servers based on programmable accelerators which can help push the limits on the computation of future data centers. We show that one of the proposed micro-server prototypes based on custom tiny cores can achieve 40% better energy- efficiency than a standard Xeon Server, while data ow engines can help speedup execution by up to 374x for various workloads.
