Title: Computing system with power requirement evaluation

Abstract: A computing system is provided and includes recording media relative to which input/output (I/O) operations are executable, and a processor, disposed in signal communication with the recording media, which is configured to execute the I/O operations and to evaluate power requirements associated with executions of the I/O operations relative to each individual recording medium. The processor includes a computer-readable medium having a set of instructions stored thereon, which, when executed, cause the processor to schedule the executions of the I/O operations relative to each individual recording medium or to refuse the executions of the I/O operations in accordance with the evaluated power requirements.
