Fujitsu Siemens - Record-Breaking Server

I seem to have spent a lot of time talking about HP and Dell recently, so I can put the record straight by reporting that Fujitsu-Siemens has announced the world's most energy-efficient industry-standard server. The SPECpower rating puts the company's Primergy TX 150 S6 (another memorable name!) in the leading position.

In fact I had an interesting meeting with the guys from Fujitsu Siemens yesterday. This is a company that has been ahead of the game in terms of making products environmentally friendly - it introduced its first Green PC back in 1993 and has tended to be ahead of any environmental legislation. It's not really surprising given that Germany, where the company is based, has had a very active Green movement (with significant political success) since the 1970s, creating an environment where investing in going Green has been more acceptable to corporate stakeholders.

Where the company seems to be losing out is in getting its message heard, which I guess is what yesterday's meeting was for.
