A while back I mentioned a meeting I’d had with HP regarding Green IT (and in my case specifically storage). As part of the discussion, I asked Lucio Furlani (VP for Marketing in TSG) if we could have Power Calculations for HP storage.
Well, true to their word, HP promised and have now delivered the first of a number of storage Power Calculators, available here: http://egui-prod.houston.hp.com/eGlue/eco/begin.do.
The first calculator is for the EVA4400 and there are more to follow. Get on-line and have a look and feed back what you think!
On the power calculator front, EMC, HDS (and now HP) all produce power tools for their storage products. EMC and HDS need to step up and make their tools public to anyone – after all if you believe your product is superior, then you’ve nothing to hide.
Does anyone know of calculators for IBM, 3Par, Pillar, Netapp etc?
