Intel micro servers almost set for release
Solution providers may want to keep track of the new generation of micro servers.

Intel's Server System Infrastructure Forum recently released the Micro Module Server Specification 1.0 as a guideline for building these small form-factor servers.

Experts say micro servers could provide a lower-energy option compared to the blade servers that currently power most data centers. Customers looking to host extremely lightweight applications that service many users will be likely targets for these micro servers.
