HP and Dell claim energy efficiency server firsts
Power test pass with a catch

Getting IT vendors to agree to any standard, even one that they have a big hand in shaping, is almost impossible. And so it is with the new Energy Star specification for servers, supposedly embraced by server makers to show the energy efficiency of their metal.
The Energy Star specification for servers, which debuted in May, is designed to gauge server power consumption so IT managers can shop for the most energy-efficient machines using an agreed yardstick. In this case, a yardstick established by the US Environmental Protection Agency's popular Energy Star program.
HP has their own site for ENERGY STAR servers.
Part of the ENERGY STAR specification are data sheets. Here are a few HP has published.
- Combining concentrated 1U compute power, integrated Lights-Out management, and essential fault tolerance, the HP ProLiant DL360 G6 is optimized for space constrained installations.
- The HP ProLiant DL380 G6 Server continues to deliver on its heritage of engineering excellence with increased flexibility and performance, enterprise-class uptime and manageability, 2-socket Intel Xeon performance, and 2U density for a variety of applications.
