Brazilian Game Site Chooses Hybrid Mainframe-Cell Platform
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

When people think of multiuser games, they are rarely thinking about mainframes. But if you stop to think about it for a second, the workload management and high bandwidth capabilities of the mainframe would make it ideally suited to simulated worlds if the machine only had some serious number-crunching power to bring to bear on the visual simulation of the virtual worlds in a game. Apparently that's exactly what Hoplon International, a Brazilian online video game company, was thinking when it hired IBM to create a new gaming platform. READ MORE >

How To Build a Green Data Center
by Alex Woodie

"Green" is not likely a word that comes to mind for those who have visited California's Inland Empire.
