Green Storage Technologies For Better Power Efficiency
The fascination with “green IT,” which dominated the trade press and agendas of tech conferences only a few years ago, has waned. The earliest conversation around green data storage focused on server power consumption and was leveraged by vendors to make a case for their latest products, many of which delivered energy savings benefits only when you squinted to read the bottom line.
As a result, any vendor pitch using the term “green” is often disregarded by consumers who have developed a case of well-deserved cynicism. This video looks at storage energy efficiency, including green data storage technologies that can help control energy costs, as presented by Jon Toigo, CEO and managing principal of Toigo Partners International.
