    7. 7. Reduce the Network Power Consumption<br />www.bladenetwork.net<br />12% of datacenter energy is used for networking equipment<br />For every watt IT consumes, 3 watts are required to operate the datacenter<br />BLADE has energy efficiency in its DNA<br />7<br />7-Dec-09<br />7<br />
    8. 8. Top-of-Rack: Case Study<br />7-Dec-09<br />www.bladenetwork.net<br />8<br />Two switch per rack deployed in five racks (Total of ten G8124)<br />Operating 24/7/365 during 3 years<br />BLADE G8124 consumes 47% less energy than a leading competitor, this means:<br />$20,000 less on your energy bill<br />50,000 kg CO2 less in the atmosphere<br />Requires 3,321 trees to offset<br />Equivalent of 5 cars off the road! <br />
    9. 9. Lowering Power Consumption <br />Conventional Data Center Switching Equipment<br />75 Watts per 10G port<br />3 Watts per 10G port<br />300 Watts<br />Cisco WS-X6704-10GE<br />295.26 Watts<br />www.cisco.com/powercalculator<br />60 Watts<br />“While external chassis-based switches from leading vendors like Cisco are commonplace in enterprise networks, these solutions do not always perform at wire speed and do not always offer low latency. At twice the throughput, and with nine times less latency than the Catalyst 6509, we expect the BLADE product will garner serious consideration by any enterprise considering blade server deployments.”<br />- Kevin Tolly,The Tolly Group<br />80% lower power consumption<br />7-Dec-09<br />9<br />www.bladenetwork.net<br />
