Most disk storage features that vendors have labeled as "green" were initially developed to increase utilization rates, to optimize storage system resource usage, to improve staff productivity or to encourage storage consolidation. Later, as power, cooling and facilities issues grew in importance, vendors responded by emphasizing the "green" aspects of these storage features. These newly minted "green" storage features are identified, and their effects on acquisition costs, power, cooling and operational efficiency are explained in this research. Organizations are also provided with methodologies that enable them to quantify the savings that each feature can deliver in their environments.
