Methods and apparatus associated with storing data in high or low energy zones are described. Example apparatus include a data storage system (DSS) that protects a message using an erasure code (EC). A location in the DSS may have an energy efficiency rating or a latency. Example apparatus include logics that produce an EC that has a likelihood of use, that select a location to store the EC in the DSS based on the energy efficiency rating, the latency, or the likelihood of use, that store the EC in the location, and that compute an order of retrieval for an EC stored in the location. The order of retrieval may be based on the energy efficiency rating or the latency. The EC may also have a priority based on the number of erasures for which the EC corrects.
