Thanks Dave. Independent coroboration is always valued.

No need to apologize Mark. You prodded me to write a post that was overdue.

Hi Dick...I said this on Mark's blog and I'll repeat it here. I and my Wikibon colleague David Floyer had an opportunity to do an independent validation (measured) of EMC's Power Calculator. The tool is incredibly accurate. We validated about a hundred random data points in the tool across multiple workloads and every single one was within +/- 3%. (I said +/- 1% on Mark's blog but I went back and checked and there were a couple that were like 2.8% off-- please don't shoot me!).

As a point of reference, power measurements are notoriously variable and anything within +/- 10% is good. 3% is amazing.

Sorry Dick! :-)
