OpenPOWER

When we saw that Tyan made a 1U server based upon this Habanero platform, that caught our eye. The power-hungry POWER8 inside a density optimized form factor? And they feed it with a PSU of "only" 750 W? Is that really a viable option? Today we'll be taking a loot at Tyan's GT75 system to find out the answer to that, and to see if a 1U configuration makes sense for a POWER8 system.
