Atom Makes Its Way Into SuperMicro Low Power Servers

SuperMicro is building Atom-based server to make an energy efficient class of servers. Obviously this might not be suitable for a computing cloud datacenter, but it might work just perfectly for some form of data storage server, which does manage a file system rather than compute more complex requests. an Atom CPU consumes between 4W and 8W while their desktop counterparts can consume anywhere between 40 and 130W.
