Power efficiency has been among the top determining factors in server purchases. In 2012 a fundamental change in server architecture could be on tap as companies look to cut data center costs with the help of technologies like ARM processors. As reported on NetworkWorld, low-power processors from companies like ARM could be in full use in data centers by 2013.
