French term or phrase: Salle blanche
Hello, still editing that IT-related text. Does anybody know what the 'salle blanche' refers to in computerland. It was translated as 'white room' (rather obvious, I guess), but is yet another computer term that's new to me.

Thanks for your replies to my previous query. I will grade after this job's through. Au revoir.
