Have seen some unusual power outages and I am thinking now.
There are some tasks that are very important for an enterprise, and
yet are not very demanding for a server.
- DHCP server
- Name server
- Web server for some minor scripts
- NTP time server
I would like to know if any work is being done on making super very low
power consumption servers, perhaps with slow CPUs, but which would a)
use VERY little electric power and b) be very highly reliable.
In my mind, something with a old slow and cool CPU, and solid state
disk, would probably use a minuscule amount of power, would not
require a fan, would have no moving parts, and would be highly
reliable due to not having mechanical components.
Sort of like an EEE PC, but rackmountable and with built in
chargeable, replaceable battery.
Is there anything like that?
