- Cloud Jewels coefficients The following coefficients are provided by Cloud Jewels for how many watt-hours (Wh) it takes to run a virtual server and to store a terabyte of data on HDD (hard disk drive) or SSD (solid-state drive) disks in a cloud computing environment:
- 2.10 Wh per vCPUh for Server
- 0.89 Wh/TBh for HDD storage
- 1.52 Wh/TBh for SSD storage
