ABSTRACT
Energy-proportional designs would enable large energy savings in servers, potentially doubling their efficiency in real-life use. Achieving energy-proportionality will require significant improvements in the energy usage profile of every system component, particularly the memory and disk subsystems.
INDEX TERMS
green computing, energy-proportional computing
