Electrical Efficiency Needed

FINALLY, since a full rack of blades from someone like Dell will cost you 20,000 watts of electricity in order to run the darn thing. Not to mention that while no special room a/c is required, i.e. it will operate at normal room temperature, there is also a significant thermal demand upon the total IT space, which may cause further a/c requirements and the power associated with that.
