Hillsborough, NJ (PRWEB) May 09, 2012
OwlPoint and Servhawk are pleased to announce a partnership that will expand OwlPoint’s solution set to include services which focus on data center energy efficiency.
“People don’t realize the impact that servers have on energy consumption,” explains Mark Blanke, OwlPoint CEO. “By understanding exactly how servers are operating and making changes to improve efficiency, you can impact so many areas of business. With the money saved on lower utility bills and reduced infrastructure costs, the business and IT department can invest in important projects.”
Denis Yaro, Servhawk CEO, adds “This is all about making it easy to achieve reductions in energy consumption, while assuring that critical performance and service levels are maintained.”
Analyst reports from August 2011 estimated a worldwide installed base of over 31 million volume servers, accounting for direct consumption of 67-82 billion kWh of energy each year.
OwlPoint and Servhawk are partnering to deliver the Server Energy Performance Assessment (SEPA), a packaged service that provides an initial evaluation and analysis of server energy consumption, efficiency and productivity. Key SEPA features include:
- Virtually no impact on your people and/or operations – no hardware or intrusive software
- Actionable results – real opportunities to save energy and related costs
- Quick turnaround – get results in as little as 30 days
SEPA identifies which servers are meeting target energy productivity levels and provides a framework for evaluating alternative server deployments to help reduce energy consumption and associated costs.
Mr. Blanke explains further, “This is about spending a little money to get a lot of savings. Companies can’t keep doing things the same way and expect results. Devoting money and time for continuous improvement allows organizations to stay ahead of the competition.”
Now more than ever, saving money and helping the environment go hand-in-hand. Mr. Yaro sums it up, “Tackling the server area is the best way we can contribute to enabling greener, more productive data centers and reducing operating costs. That’s exactly what OwlPoint and Servhawk are setting out to do.”
