FSC Scaleo Home Server 1900

With energy prices rising across the world, it's pretty clear that all of us will be paying a lot more attention to how we consume power in our houses - especially those devices that we tend to leave 'on' more than others - like PCs, A/V equipment, and of course our trusty Windows Home Servers.  […]

With energy prices rising across the world, it's pretty clear that all of us will be paying a lot more attention to how we consume power in our houses - especially those devices that we tend to leave 'on' more than others - like PCs, A/V equipment, and of course our trusty Windows Home Servers.  😉  One of our partners, Fujitsu-Siemens (or FSC for short) opted to differentiate their Windows Home Server offering, the FSC Scaleo, by focusing on reducing power consumption thru innovative software and a great hardware platform.  The results from their lab, below, speak for themselves.  I've compared their results with an average PC in the home (and yes, I used the 'extreme' example here to prove a point).  This translates into real, significant $$ folks!

Clearly, I'm not the only one that's recognized the 'green' angle of the FSC Home Server product.  PC Pro, a UK based tech magazine just posted this review lauding its ability to conserve energy:  http://www.pcpro.co.uk/reviews/190008/fujitsu-siemens-scaleo-home-server-1900.html
