TSO Logic Delivers First Commercialized Energy Efficiency Dashboard for Data Centers

Innovation provides new insights to uncover energy waste, improve efficiency, and strategically enhance business performance

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA and LAS VEGAS, NEVADA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/01/14 -- Editors Note: There is a photo associated with this press release.

TSO Logic, the award-winning maker of energy efficiency software for data centers, today unveiled Data Center Efficiency Console (DEC), the first commercially available dashboard that delivers essential metrics for improving operational and energy efficiency.

Power costs can exceed 33% of the total data center spend, and many companies are looking for ways to understand and reduce these costs without impacting performance.

The TSO Logic DEC provides C-level executives and IT staff with never-before-seen efficiency insights via a shareable widget-style dashboard. With detailed insight into application performance, power consumption, and operating costs, executives can use relatable business metrics to make strategic decisions that improve overall business performance, especially when it comes to reducing costs from energy waste.

Integrated with TSO Logic's Application-Aware Power Management software solution, the DEC displays dozens of key metrics on a shareable dashboard to establish benchmarks and set efficiency targets company-wide.

Some key metrics include:


--  Cost per transaction
--  Power usage by power source
--  Average server utilization levels
--  Revenue per server
--  Transactions per kWh
--  Cost per user

"I started TSO Logic knowing that there had to be a better way to collect metrics and manage energy costs. The DEC is a game-changer for the data center industry because for the first time, executives will have access to the insights they need to better control their data centers power costs and energy waste," said Aaron Rallo, founder and CEO of TSO Logic. "By combining our automated power control with application-level power metrics, I anticipate that we can save half or more on server power costs."

"Enhanced by Intel's Data Center Manager, TSO Logic's DEC provides new insights into power management and costs that are specifically designed for C-level executives," said Jeff Klaus, General Manager, Data Center Solutions at Intel Corporation. "Data center efficiency and rising power costs are a growing concern and impacting business and profitability more than ever. A tool like this speaks to executives in a language that's meaningful and helps them to make strategic changes to improve their bottom line."

"The current most widely adopted data center metrics only tell half the story when it comes to energy efficiency," said Andrew Donoghue, European Research Manager for 451 Research. "TSO Logic's Data Center Efficiency Console provides a more holistic approach that makes application and service delivery the cornerstone of improving operational performance. It's similar to eBay's Digital Service Efficiency (DSE) approach, but TSO Logic's dashboard is an actual commercial product."

From April 1-3, TSO Logic will demonstrate DEC at Interop Las Vegas. Their technology will be helping to run InteropNet, the conference's "best practices" network, with live results displayed at the InteropNet NOC and their booth in the New Innovators Pavilion. Results will also be posted live on TSO Logic's website at www.tsologic.com/interop.
