IT power management with Verdiem (english)

  1. 1. IT Power Management with Verdiem’s Surveyor 6
  2. 2. 3:00 AM Maybe, I’m part of the 30% of your computers that waste energy overnight. (dont’ say it loud, but my insomnia costs your budgetbetween 10 and 40€ per year and the planet has to absorb between 16 and 63 CO2 Kg)
  3. 3. A suspended PCuses 96% less energy
  4. 4. So utilization counts a lot! Measure phase Apply Savings startWith our software, wecollect data about themain energy states andthe users activity as apercentage of the day.Orange is ON In this case in a Hospital, we applied energy policiesLight green is Stand-by with Verdiem’s Surveyor in the last 3 weeks. TheDark green is OFF increase in light green bars indicate that the PCs areBlue line is user activity entering a suspended state when not used (using 96% less energy than when ON) and this is THE important factor to look at.
  5. 5. To change behavior is hard Could you ever have imagined this picture in the ‘80s? (and I save you from the explicit ones)With Verdiem Surveyor you can automatically reduce unproductive timewhen devices stay switched on with no users, without disturbing them orasking for any lifestyle changes.
  6. 6. Will you save your company?No. PC Power Management is ONE easy and simple thing to do to save energy in your company andemissions to the planet.One of our customers with 1000 computers in a building, spends 100.000 € a month in electricity in it. By power managingthe computers they save 12€ per year/PC. So for the 28.000 computers they have this means 336.000 € of avoidable wastein a year.Is this a tiny amount of money this days? And what about the 533 tones of CO2 to the atmosphere? Gov’s office with 7 to 8 Banks and extended hours Healthcare and 24x7 working hours companies environmentsExpectedsavings per 7 to 10 € 10 to 15 € 20 to 40 €PC and year% of building consider it to be between 1% and 3%, depending onenergy cases. Think that if you save 1% and 4 more areas doreduction the same you will save 5% on total energy bill.So the correct question is not how much can you save, butWhat is a nice sum of money to send to the trashcan each year?How many more (avoidable) CO2 emissions will the world accept?
  7. 7. Reporting This is a sample of the information we track and use to make sure the policies are enforced and the goals are met, while the users are not affected. Answers: Power states “Which is the energy consumption related to real and user activity usage?” Answers: Energy “How efficient is our energy usage compared with efficiency the demand from the activity and productive tasks my workers do?” Answers: Avg. daily PC “Aren’t there any sub-utilized devices, and where are use they?” (hint, we usually see that around 10% of the computers are really used less than 60’ a day) Answers: Environmental “Which are the associated social and environmental impact benefits from this project?”This is a sample subset of the available reports, and all of them allow to be filtered by group, location,device type, policies and other factors.
