HP Proliant Server
HP emphasizes the green features of ProLiant G6 server line, which uses sensors and power capping logic to drive energy efficiency. …

… “The HP Sea of Sensors – automatically track thermal activity across the server through a collection of 32 smart sensors. The sensors dynamically adjust system components such as fans, memory and input/output processing to optimize system cooling and increase efficiency. HP Dynamic Power Capping reallocates power and cooling resources in the data center by dynamically setting or “capping” the power drawn by servers. ” …
