IBM Introduces New Energy-Saving Web Server

The International Business Machines Corporation (IBM) announced last week that it is producing a new server that uses 57 percent less electricity than comparable models. Servers are computers that "serve up" the graphics, text, forms and other contents of Web pages. The new IBM server also produces 63 percent less heat than comparable models, thus also requiring less energy for air conditioning. See the IBM press release.
