Energy-Efficient Storage Technologies
sponsored by

Green computing has become a national passion that is spreading globally. As a key element of the IT infrastructure, storage is expected to play its part by adopting green storage practices.

This chapter focuses on ways to reduce storage energy consumption such as:

  • Switching to fewer higher-capacity disks.
  • Use slower disks (7,200, 10,000 rpm).
  • Back up to tape, not disk.
  • Virtualize and consolidate storage.
  • And more
This is the fourth of five chapters from the e-book: The Green Data Center: Energy efficient computing in the 21st Century.
