It was a cold and rainy weekend here, so I did some power measurements
of the three types of storage servers we got over a few years of running
Ceph in production, and compared the results:

The last paragraph contains a challenge to developers: Can we save more
power in "cold storage" applications by turning off idle disks?
Crazy idea, or did anyone already try this?
