Demartek has been named an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recognized test laboratory for the United States EPA ENERGY STAR® Data Center Storage program. They provide hands-on research and analysis by focusing on industry analysis and lab validation testing of server, network, storage, and security technologies. The EPA ENERGY STAR Data Center Storage taxonomy is consistent with the taxonomy developed by the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) Green Storage Initiative. This interesting news came from the trade-site Power Engineering in their article, “Demartek Becomes an EPA Recognized Independent Test Laboratory.”

“The EPA has applied the basic idea of energy efficiency to entire data center storage products as part of their ENERGY STAR program,” said Dennis Martin, Demartek President. “Demartek has deployed many data center storage products from a variety of manufacturers in its lab over the past few years and is experienced in running applications on these storage systems for conducting various validation and performance tests.”
