Armonk, N.Y. – Touting its energy efficiency, IBM Corp. has unveiled its System z10 mainframe. The Armonk, N.Y.-based company says the z10 was designed to increase data center efficiency by significantly improving performance and reducing power consumption, cooling costs and floor space requirements.

According to IBM, a single z10 is the equivalent of 1,500 x86 servers, but offers an 85% reduction in energy use. Additionally, despite standing over 8-feet tall and weighing 2.5 tons, the z10 occupies up to 85% less floor space than a comparable number of servers, the company says.
