IBM Nautilus is greenest supercomputer
The Green 500 report recognizes IBM and the University of Warsaw for the most energy efficient supercomputer in the world. …

… “According to some recent reports, the energy losses in conventional systems range between 40 and 70 percent. On average, for every 100 units of energy piped into a data center, only 3 units are used for actual computing. More than half goes to cooling the servers. Nautilus, based on IBM technology, makes supercomputing smarter – greener and more efficient. ”
