Abstract / Description of output

The hardware in a modern datacentre is highly configurable. Services run on top a virtual infrastructure whose architecture is defined by "programming" the configuration of the hardware. This invites comparison with the task of computer programming. This paper explores the analogy to see what insight it might provide into the datacentre configuration problem.
