Via may have finally found a steady home for its Nano CPU. Dell is looking to make a new classification of server and wants to put the Via Nano under the hood.

VIA got a break from the all-mighty silicon gods as the world's second-largest computer seller, Dell, has decided on using its Nano processors for a new series of servers. Before making it into Dell's offer, the Nano has found its way into the Samsung NC20, a 12-inch notebook. Dubbed XS11-VX8, the new Nano-powered machines are designed for light server workloads and put the emphasis on low power consumption, lower cooling requirements and compact size.
