According to EPAs report to Congress, data centers will account for nearly 3% of total US electricity consumption in 2011. IBM has always been focused on help clients reduce their energy consumption through greater efficiency and innovation. Free air cooling support: – X3750 M4 processors models support 5 o-40oC – Allow customers to save on cooling costs Zone Cooling: Six independent FAN modules support 5 Thermal Zones. Zone 5 Each zone will adjust fan speed based on the components and thermal Zone 4 conditions in that zone. This provides optimal temperature within the server without wasting energy Zone 3 Zone 2 Choice of 2 Redundant Power supplies that are 80PLUS platinum Zone 1 power (94%) efficiency design N+N Fan Design: These hot-swap, dual-motor cooling fans help maintain a healthy system temperature by keeping internal components cool.
