Today's datacenters and large scale enterprise computing are power hungry. A lot of research effort is devoted in industry and academy to address this challenging issue. In this paper, a new type of enterprise computing platform is being investigated. This computing platform is composed of hundred of millicomputers, each requiring orders of magnitude less power. The millicomputing aims to significantly increase the energy efficiency of data centers by delivering high performance computing. However, this approach brings challenges that must be met in order to compete with the current practice.
