LAREDO, Texas -Thursday 25 October 2018 [ AETOS Wire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Inventor Matteo Gravina patents three inventions for high performance computing and data center industries. With over 200 GFLOPs per watt claimed by the patent portfolio, this might be one of the greenest patent portfolios on the planet.

The marketplace for data centers has a metric for power efficiency. The power usage effectiveness of 1.0 is the total amount of energy delivered to the servers equal to the total power use by the facility. PUE is the ratio of the total amount of power use by a facility to the energy delivered to the servers and rack equipment. According to the portfolio patent specification's, a negative power usage effectiveness is achievable, in this case, electrical power is extracted at a higher level than what is introduced to power the servers.

However, it is important to be clear about four important facts:

    Only a very small percentage of residence or citizenship statuses legitimately obtained through RBI or CBI programs are at issue.
