<p>Although the field of datacenter computing is arguably still in its relative infancy, a sizable body of work from both academia and industry is already available and some consistent technological trends have begun to emerge. This special issue presents a small sample of the work underway by researchers and professionals in this new field. The selection of articles presented reflects the key role that hardware-software codesign plays in the development of effective datacenter-scale computer systems.</p>
