machines designed to minimize the use of physical space and energy
that are often used in data centers.

Baker. HP is the owner of the patent. It was originally filed on Oct.
While its international headquarters are in Palo Alto, California, HP's
Houston office serves as the nerve center of its U.S. division. HP's
offices are located in the Cy-Fair area at 20555 SH 249.
