  10. 10. Key Recommendations of Planet Filestore➢Calculate what environmental and economic savings can be made by adopting an automated tiered storage approach. ➢ Calculations based on manufacturers’ stated figures are normally sufficient.➢Disks should only be installed as required to minimise the amount of energy used by idle disks. ➢ Unless storage array has spin-down features.➢Consider whether appropriate similar technology may be applicable for other applications.
  11. 11. So What Now?➢Continued dissemination➢Implementation at Cardiff University ➢ Rollout in production during 2011StorC Project➢
  12. 12. StorC ProjectStorC Project➢ ➢ JISC project started in Feb 2011 ➢ Web based modelling tool to help to build a case for adoption. ➢ Industry default values – or customise with your own ➢ Available as a service on the UK Access Management Federation ➢ You can return to your work later to continue or show it to your boss.
