The company reports that the iDataPlex has the potential to eliminate the need for air conditioners and can run at room temperature via a liquid cooling wall on the back of the system.
The new servers will double the number of systems that can run in a single rack while consuming 40% less power. Its USP will be to ensure that as consumers demand richer content and more immediate access to Web-based applications, it will allow Internet, online gaming and social networking companies, as well as service providers, to scale rapidly to meet this emergent need.
