“Perhaps the most interesting feature of this new c3000 chassis is that HP has done the work and testing to ensure that it can run in a 100-degree (Fahrenheit, people, not Celsius) environment, which I can tell you from personal experience is not hard to hit inside a data closet on a hot summer day in New York City. By allowing it to operate at such temperatures, the Shorty chassis is going to end up all over the company–just like minicomputers and midrange servers from days gone by did.
