It also means "well-ventilated installation required". Maybe you can find a datacenter with so many hot bladeservers that they can't fill their racks. Then you could ask them to give you 8U cheap at the bottom of a rack and mount your servers vertically for maximal airflow. ;-) --Michael Dillon P.S. on the other hand, if there is enough demand for fanless server installations, maybe some datacenters will begin to offer vertically vented space at the bottom of their racks...
