New SPEC tool to ID most energy-efficient servers

James Niccolai | March 4, 2013
SPEC, the standards body for performance benchmarks, has released a new toolkit that should help customers choose the most energy-efficient server for the workloads they need to run.

SPEC and the EPA are still figuring out how they'll use the data to rank servers. With the current tests, they choose the top 25 percent of servers and award them an Energy Star. Because the new test is more complicated, they'll collect data for nine months and use it to figure out how to rank the systems. But buyers will be able to start using the results as soon as they're posted.
