SPEC Updates SERT Suite for ISO-Compliant Server Power Effectivity Benchmarking

The Customary Efficiency Analysis Company’s SPEC SERT Suite has developed because the industry-standard for measuring the power effectivity of servers over the past decade. Regulatory authorities such because the U.S EPA and Japan’s METI are a number of the many who’ve adopted the suite to find out thresholds for numerous energy-efficiency packages.

In August 2020, the Worldwide Group for Standardization (ISO) printed the ISO/IEC 21836:2020 normal to specify the measurement methodology for evaluation and reporting of a server’s power effectivity. As we speak, SPEC is asserting SERT Suite 2.0.4, an replace to allow its incorporation into the ISO normal. It should be famous that the SERT suite was already compliant with ISO 21836. The brand new model additionally brings in ISO compliance report hyperlinks. Along with together with newest PTDaemon software program (v1.9.2) that interfaces with SPEC-approved energy analyzers and temperature sensors, and GUI optimizations, the SPEC SERT Suite 2.0.4 additionally helps servers primarily based on the newest ARM processors from Ampere, Fujitsu, and Marvell.

The SERT 2.0.4 suite is priced at USD 2800, and is accessible for quick obtain. Being a minor model replace, it’s free for SERT 2 licensees to improve. Much like all different benchmarks developed by SPEC, the SERT Suite from the SPECpower Committee has been developed in a vendor-agnostic method with representatives from throughout the {industry}. For sure, this vastly will increase the credibility of the benchmark. The SERT Suite permits customers / cloud service suppliers to find out the power effectivity (and, the TCO not directly) of a selected providing for his or her workloads. The most recent providing retains up with the evolving {industry} necessities.
