    Server plugs into wall socket for small networks

    Marvell has launched a computer server the size of plug that can be plugged in to power home and small office networks.

    The Marvell plug computer connects to an existing network using Gigabit Ethernet. This type of device eliminates the need for an always-on PC to power the network.

    The Marvell plug computer is designed to be left plugged into a wall socket at all times. Marvell said it draws less than five watts under normal operation on average, compared to 25-100 watts for a PC being used as a home server.
