Servers: What do they really cost?

Really interesting post on Forbes.com about how much a server really costs, some excerpts are following:
  • Spending $2,500 on a server really means spending between $8,300 and $15,400 in facility capital to provide the necessary space for housing the server and powering it.
  • A single rack of blade servers will consume $1 million in facility capital. Pretty staggering! And this is the underlying source of the boom in data-center construction driven by the need to house 5 million additional servers.

Do you like playing in the game which you need to use wow gold, when you do not have World of Warcraft Gold, you must borrow warcraft gold from friends, or you buy wow gold. If you get cheap wow gold, you can continue this game.
