Energy Star

All E32 systems are designed to with the premise of maximizing energy efficiency. The latest version of the Energy Star standard is still being defined. Pending ratification of the newest Energy Star spec, the Development team will assess which models will be able to be Energy Star compliant.

EPEAT™

E32 models which are Energy Star compliant (pending ratification of latest Energy Star spec) will also qualify for the EPEAT™ Gold rating.

EuP Lot-6 2012

E32 systems are complaint with the EuP Lot-6 2012 standard for low power consumption. This is enabled by default for all systems shipping to EMEA, and can be toggled on or off in the system BIOS.

RAID

Supported RAID levels for a system will vary from the stated capabilities of the RAID controller due to dependencies on the number and capacity of physical disks in the system and on customer requirements for performance, fault tolerance, or data redundancy.
RAID levels and requirements:
·         RAID 0 (striping) provides increased performance by writing data across multiple drives.
·         RAID 1 (mirroring) provides fault tolerance by writing the data on two drives.
·         RAID 5 (striping with parity) uses distributed parity data to provide fault tolerance more efficiently than RAID 1.
