Suite of Energy Efficient NightWatchman Solutions Now Addresses 60 Percent of IT Power Usage
LAS VEGAS (Microsoft Management Summit) – Tuesday 20th April 2010 – 1E, a software and services company that improves IT efficiency by identifying and reducing costs and waste in hardware, software, energy and time, today announced two significant advances in IT efficiency: NightWatchman® Server Edition 2.0 and NightWatchman® at the Microsoft Management Summit 2010 (MMS).
With nearly 14 million licenses sold and deployed across 1100 organizations in 42 countries worldwide, 1E’s energy efficiency solutions have helped its customers save in excess of $360M in energy costs alone, cutting CO2 emissions by three million tons. NightWatchman is the world’s leading PC power management solution with four million licensed users worldwide.
“We’re proud to join Microsoft at MMS as a Gold Sponsor and offer this loyal community a first look at our innovative suite of NightWatchman solutions,” said Sumir Karayi, CEO, 1E. “1E continues to lead the industry in empowering IT efficiency, reducing costs and saving energy for our customers.”
For System Center customers, NightWatchman provides increased return on investment (ROI) through genuine power savings and enhanced computer health, reporting and remediation. For example, 1E’s Nomad Enterprise allows branch office server consolidation and zero touch Windows 7 deployment. In addition, Configuration Manager customers using 1E’s Shopping software will benefit from self service through a highly customizable work flow-based Web portal.1E solutions have been maximizing efficiencies to the System Center Configuration Manager infrastructures for more than a decade.
“By working together with 1E’s best-of-breed energy efficient IT solutions, we offer customers a powerful combination of automation, reduced infrastructure and power management. As a result, customers can gain a deeper insight into their operations and drive efficiencies across their physical and virtual IT environments,” said Brad Anderson, corporate vice president, Management and Services Division at Microsoft Corporation.
NightWatchman Server Edition, the latest innovation from 1E, addresses the $24.7 billion of IT spend wasted each year on servers not doing any useful work. Traditional monitoring tools primarily focus on availability and performance but provide little insight on whether a server is providing any business value. NightWatchman Server Edition provides detailed efficiency and power reporting so that decisions such as decommissioning wasteful servers are made much simpler and the efficiency of productive servers can be further enhanced with Drowsy Server® technology.
1E will be presenting a session on Wednesday, April 21st at 10:15am, providing the audience with a sneak preview of NightWatchman Server Edition 2.0 and NightWatchman 6.0, which will be generally available later in 2010. Presentations and demonstrations of 1E solutions including NightWatchman, WakeUp, Shopping and NightWatchman Server Edition will take place throughout the week at the 1E booth [# 410]. Attendees will also discover how Nomad Enterprise can be used to simplify and reduce the cost of Windows®7 deployment.
