    Wiring the z10

    IBM technician Mike Koch, Kingston, N.Y., installs wiring on IBM's new z10 mainframe computer at the company's Poughkeepsie, N.Y. plant. A single z10 offers the computing power of 1,500 PC-style servers, uses 85 percent less electricity and occupies 85% less floor space. The all-new z10 is IBM's first mainframe purposely built to handle the exploding demand for digital transactions enabled by the Internet, a trend that is creating crowded, over-burdened corporate data centers -- computer rooms that process everything from consumer banking transactions to drivers' license forms.
