Energy Star for Servers Pegged for February

Ainsley Jones

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has published a third draft of its Energy Star specification for servers. The agency expects the final spec to be ready for manufacturers and customers in February 2009, reports Ars Technica.


Under the most recent specs, single-socket idling servers cannot exceed 60 watts, and servers with four sockets must not exceed 271 watts. Blade systems are excluded from the draft, however, the EPA is planning a more far-reaching specification for October 2010, says this PC Pro article.
