1E to showcase NightWatchman® energy and efficiency management solutions at Green IT Expo in London
London, UK Tuesday 1st November 2011 – 1E, the global leader in Efficient IT, will demonstrate the company’s award-winning NightWatchman® energy and efficiency management solutions on stand #27 at Green IT Expo at the Central Hall in Westminster, London on Tuesday 1st November 2011.
Who: Microsoft ISV/Software Innovation Partner of the Year 2010, 1E has helped its 1,400 customers, including Arup, Aviva, HSBC and Newham University Hospitals NHS Trust save more than £345 million in energy costs alone, cutting CO2 emissions by 4.1 million metric tonnes.
What: 1E will share IT efficiency best practices and demonstrate its award-winning energy and efficiency software for PCs, Macs and Servers on stand #27 at the show. NightWatchman® Server Edition is the current holder of the Green IT product of the year award for energy management in the datacenter. NightWatchman® Enterprise is the industry-leading, most comprehensive, advanced PC power management solution on the market today.
Andy Hawkins, product manager will present IT Efficiency: Practical Recommendations from the Front Line during session 3D at 11.30am – 12pm. The session will highlight 1E’s Efficient IT Strategy, best practise customer examples from around the world and savings that can be made from making office equipment including PCs, Macs and servers more efficient.
PCs and servers account for around 60% of total organizational IT power consumption, and yet:
- On average one sixth (15%) of servers are not doing any useful work, meaning that approximately £15 billion is wasted each year on unused servers. In CO2 terms, that’s 11.8 million tons – the same amount produced by 2.1 million cars – which is being emitted needlessly. Using an energy management solution like NightWatchman to rein in non-productive servers stands to produce $3.8 billion in energy cost savings alone.
- At least in 50% of those who use a PC at work typically do not to shut down at the end of the day or over the weekend. Yet there are clear savings to be made – a one night shut down of the world’s 1 billion PCs would save enough energy to power the Empire State Building for 30 years. NightWatchman® Enterprise has been licensed across 5.1 million PCs around the world, saving on average £25 per PC per year.
1E is the sole awardee of the Office of Government Commerce (OGC) pan-government IT Power Management Framework. Under this deal, public sector organisations in the UK have access to streamlined procurement all software products within the 1E portfolio.
1E will also be doing a prize draw to win an iPad 2 on its stand.
