This white paper discusses the system benefits of lower power consumption delivered by using TOE for green data center initiatives. These efficiencies further translate into substantial data center savings for enterprise models such as the consolidation of workloads in virtualization environments. In recognition of the escalating need to add more LOM controllers due to increased input/output (I/O) activity on the servers, the authors analyzed the relative power consumption benefits of TOE and compared these to Layer 2 teaming solutions. This analysis produced encouraging results, which are explained in the paper.
