LONDON, June 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Customers Can Take Advantage of Verdiem's Leading Energy Management Tool during the Lifecycle of the Switch
Today, Verdiem announced the availability of the Verdiem EnergyWise Accelerator as part of the Cisco EnergyWise Fast-Track program - a free subscription to the Verdiem Surveyor IT energy management solution for Cisco Catalyst 3K- and 4K-series switch customers.
The Verdiem EnergyWise Accelerator provides visibility into the energy usage across an organization's fleet of information and communications technology (ICT) devices. For as long as the organization runs a Cisco Network with Cisco EnergyWise, it can freely monitor the energy consumption of its network equipment and Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) devices such as IP phones and wireless access points. For these same devices, organizations can control energy usage to lower energy costs for up to one year. Also for one year, Cisco customers can monitor their entire PC fleet's energy usage and enforce power saving policies for up to 1,000 PCs. Savings range from 30 to 50 percent which quickly adds up to thousands, if not millions, of dollars in energy savings.
"Enterprise-wide monitoring of energy usage with granularity for different device types is important to establish a baseline energy profile. Once baselines are created, businesses can lower operating costs by controlling the energy consumption of ICT devices, particularly the PC, which is the number one consumer of IT energy. With the Accelerator, Verdiem Surveyor now makes the PC a full-featured EnergyWise device," said John Scumniotales, president and CEO of Verdiem. "The Verdiem EnergyWise Accelerator gives Cisco customers a convenient way to evaluate EnergyWise and to begin to realize the impressive reductions in energy expenditures from their PC fleet and other ICT devices."
As part of the Verdiem EnergyWise Accelerator, Surveyor 6 extends its leading EnergyWise support with a solution for hot-plugging of Cisco EnergyWise connected PCs. Hot-plugging allows mobile laptop users to securely reconnect and automatically rejoin a Cisco EnergyWise network as they change their physical location.
Verdiem Surveyor enables customers to centrally control and reduce the energy used by PCs, Macs, and network devices running Cisco EnergyWise without impacting end users. More than 600 corporations, government agencies and universities have deployed Surveyor on nearly 2 million devices. Based in Seattle, Verdiem is backed by Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. http://www.verdiem.com.
