Power still not top of mind for storage pros

Respondents to Storage magazine's 2008 priorities survey rank power consumption and cooling requirements as low criteria for disk system purchases. Only 15% of those surveyed say power and cooling requirements are very important purchasing factors. The majority (43%) say they're important factors, but they won't determine their final system choice. Another 30% call power and cooling "minor considerations," and 10% don't use power consumption requirements as criteria when shopping for disk systems. Two percent aren't sure how power and cooling requirements will affect their disk buys. Click Here for a PDF of this Survey.
