SearchDataCenter.com, an online news magazine that helps IT managers evaluate data centers, published a story this week about memory and its energy role in processors. The article notes that an important factor in a processor’s power efficiency success is due in large part to memory. While many IT managers in today’s data center operations are looking at ways to cut power, they may not realize that memory is a variable within their control. The article also highlights Micron’s Aspen Memory product portfolio and notes the potential savings achieved – a whopping 60 percent. Micron has developed an online power calculator that can estimate the cost benefit of using Micron’s energy-efficient Aspen Memory modules.
