Storage energy efficiency goes legit: Storage Performance Council’s SPC-1C/E benchmark

spcAnother sign of the rising importance of power consumption in storage: IT is getting a high-octane tool to objectively assess the energy efficiency of storage systems and components. 

The Storage Performance Council has unveiled a new energy efficiency benchmark, SPC-1C/E.  The new test is an extension of SPC-1 and SPC-1C benchmarks, industry standard composite IOPS peformance tests.

Seagate’s Savvio 10K.3 was the first component assessed by the new test, and performed extremely well according to SPC.  No surprise here, as the Savvio 10K sports an unusual combination of performance and energy efficient traits.

IBM’s EXP-12S was the first storage system to be tested.
