Energy optimization has become a growing concern in the present world. Energy optimization can influence the overall system design and reliability. Power can greatly influence the performance of the disk, as power dissipation generates heat that affects stability and reliability of the component, particularly for large server systems. Hence, developers concentrate on the configuration of disk arrays which can deliver extremely high performance. Though, there are several significant techniques for tackling disk power for laptops and workstations, using them in a server environment are a considerable challenge, especially under stringent performance needs. Excessive power consumption is a major barrier to the market acceptance of hard disks in mobile electronic devices. Studying and reducing power consumption, however, often comprises running time intensive disk traces on real hardware with specialized power-monitoring equipment. Most of the conventional energy optimization techniques are based on architectural level techniques and is found to be effective only in certain scenarios. This paper proposes a survey on the disk energy optimization techniques. This paper analyses the functionalities, advantages and the disadvantages of the various techniques for the disk power consumption.
