Pivot3 has added a datasheet on their storage arra [link no longer available]y and a brochure claiming energy savings from using their storage system [link no longer available]. Over a 3 year period, they estimate saving $110,000 on a 400TB storage system that I estimate costs $600,00 to $800,000 to install. This savings is based on using Pivot3 versus traditional direct attached storages to recorders.  At best, accepting the manufacturer's estimate, it's a modest cost savings.
