Hi, all,
Would you please tell me the exact meanings of "10-to-1" and "2-to-1" in the following paragraph? By how much are servers reduced? 90%?
According to Kevin Bross, modular-systems architect at Intel, a data center responding to a recent virtualization survey reported that virtualization had allowed a 10-to-1 reduction in the number of servers and a 2-to-1 reduction in the total power usage because the remaining servers were receiving heavier usage.
Thanks a lot!

    10-to-1 reduction = the number of servers has been reduced by 90% (1 of every 10 servers remains)
    2-to-1 reduction = the number of servers has been reduced by 50% (1 of every 2 servers remains)
