Plat'Home, an early provider of Linux in Japan, following its eco-friendly Linux-based server announcement last month, is now announcing their OpenMicroServer is available to North American customers.

The OpenMicroServer is kind of an "extreme" use server pushing the boundaries for normal, low-cost hardware. In a 624-day endurance test, the OpenMicroServer performed normally under 122 degrees F conditions. The unit also employs a power efficient AMD Alchemy (MIPS) CPU and precise part placement based on thermo-fluid analysis to achieve semi-hermetic construction. It can handle down to the freezing point (0 degrees C), too. Detailed hardware specs are here.
