Until recently, power consumption and energy savings were not a major concern in our data centers. However, it has come to light that spinning HDDs are one of the biggest power consumers in organizations today. MAID (Massive or Monolithic Array of Idle Disk) devices work to combat the energy problem brought on by HDDs by powering them down when not in use.

But in order to make sure that performance isn't impacted, new MAID 2.0 devices, combined with intelligent power management (IPM), have been designed to balance energy savings with performance and availability needs - without needing to shut down your HDD.

Read this white paper to learn more about MAID and energy efficient strategies, through topics such as:

  •    An overview of MAID 2.0 and IPM
  •    How to calculate your own annual energy savings
  •    Tips for selecting energy efficient storage systems
  •    And more
