Greatresponder.com – 2011-06-12 – Well known network provider Verizon announced that it has noticeably reduced energy grabbing and atmosphere emissions at its US data centers by using top intelligent energy-control systems manufactured by Vigilent company.

Vigilent energy control systems consist of several hundreds of remotes temperature sensors at every data center that are connected through top intelligent mesh network to on-site servers using advanced energy management software.

Such systems allowed Verizon to turn off around 40% of the computer room air conditioners and ventilation systems in these data centers within only two days of implementing the energy control systems, which noticeably reduced energy consumption and saved over 55 million kilowatts per year.

From ecological side, such system has reduced over than 66 million pounds of CO2 annually.

Finally this system has decreased average temperatures of servers room by two degrees. Its noticeable and very good for all installed hardware.”Vigilent energy management systems have reduced cooling consumption by more than 40 percent as well as provided important safeguards that help improve our uptime,” said Mark Capurso, director of national technical operations at Verizon. “This combination of energy savings and improved efficiencies goes a long way toward helping meet Verizon’s goal of improving its carbon efficiency by 15 percent this year.”

Vigilent energy control systems delivered real-time information about environmental conditions throughout each of Verizon’s data centers, as well as provided detailed analysis and deep recommendations for optimal configurations, preferences and performance.

Verizon has carefully considered regarding the choice of right energy control system. So,Vigilent systems were not selected randomly. After launching of an extensive investigation Verizon selected Vigilent as right system.

Overall, such implementation noticeably saves consumption for Verizon and reduces emissions in atmosphere.
