VIDEO: Using Cell Phone Chips for Low Power Servers

Karl Freund, CalxedaStartup Calxeda has a big idea: use cell phone chips (and the ARM architecture) to create low-power servers. Reducing energy consumption is something data center operators and Internet companies are increasingly paying attention to as a way to lower costs and Calxeda (basically a chip company) will be rolling out its product in 2012.
