IT efficiency is at the core of green IT. To help users increase energy efficiency in their datacenters, Infortrend has developed many software technologies and hardware design features to optimize storage systems.
Through storage virtualization, scattered storage resources can be consolidated beyond physical boundaries for efficient utilization and management. Thin provisioning and distributed load balancing technologies improve capacity utilization and performance to optimize return on investment. Flexible drive support of Infortrend storage systems allows users to assign often-accessed, critical data to high-performance drives and static data to large-capacity drives, enabling them to meet diverse application requirements at optimal cost efficiency.
The hardware platforms of Infortrend's storage systems are also enhanced with advanced power-saving designs. 80 PLUS-certified power supplies deliver more than 80% energy efficiency, while intelligent multi-level drive spin-down can help users signficantly reduce power consumption. Infortend has taken a leading role in green IT to help businesses lower their energy bills and contribute to environmental sustainability.
