Power Efficiency Measurement

In this era of ever higher performance, attention must be paid to power efficiency. Added performance must be achieved responsibility – if power usage soars, the boost in performance may not be viable or sustainable. The SNIA Green Storage Initiative (GSI) is dedicated to advancing energy efficiency and conservation in all networked storage technologies and minimizing the environmental impact of data storage operations. An essential part of its mission is the SNIA Emerald™ Program for SNIA Emerald Energy Efficiency Measurement. This program provides public access to storage system power usage and efficiency through use of a well-defined testing procedure, and additional information related to system power.
