VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/26/14 -- TSO Logic, developers of energy efficiency software for data centers, today announced that its Application-Aware Power Management software received Top Product of the Year Award recognition in the Environmental Leader Product & Project Awards.
Application-Aware Power Management is considered by judges as an exemplary product due to its scale of application and the impressive results it provided for TSO Logic customers. One judge said of Application-Aware Power Management, "This seems like a big idea with scalable applications and material impact. New ways of delivering decision-quality data and actionable analysis is a very useful contribution!" Another judge added, "I liked the case study that they provided - highlighting actual savings numbers and performance improvements of 400%."
Application-Aware Power Management includes two integrated toolsets in one install, including; TSO Metrics which provides deep, unparalleled visibility into workload, performance, wasted energy, and untapped cost savings, and; TSO Power Control, which controls the power state of servers based on user demand without impacting end user performance. For one company, the software demonstrated a 56% reduction in power usage in a 600-server data center with a forecasted cost savings of nearly $600,000 over five years.
The Environmental Leader Product & Project Awards is a program recognizing excellence in products and services that provide companies with energy and environmental benefits, or in projects implemented by companies that improved environmental or energy management and increased the bottom line.
Scores were determined by a panel of independent judges headed by Matthew Littlefield of LNS Research and also included judges from companies including Microsoft, Arrow Electronics, Owens Corning, Citigroup Inc., Sam's Club, and the University of California, Berkeley.
With today's crowded playing field, energy and sustainability professionals have a notoriously difficult time knowing what products to choose to help their companies increase energy, environmental and sustainability performance. The Environmental Leader Product & Project Awards give companies a solid base of products, vetted by experts, from which to choose.
"The caliber of the entries this year was even more impressive than last year, and showed the excitement and innovation taking place in the industry today," says Paul Nastu, publisher of Environmental Leader. "There was tough competition for those that entered, and the products that were awarded Top Product or Project of the Year are those that the judges say have viable attributes that set them apart from others in the field."
"Over the years, data centers have garnered considerable attention for being huge consumers and wasters of energy," said Aaron Rallo, founder and CEO of TSO Logic. "For us, this recognition is confirmation that our Application-Aware approach to power management is a viable solution to the problem of energy waste at data centers."
