Case Study: Hospital 100% Visibility, 30% Reduction in Energy Costs The Challenge A hospital needed to understand its IT energy consumption to find opportunities to lower it and meet its goal of operating with minimal impact to the environment. Originally, it sought a solution to power manage its VoIP phones when not in use.
Case Study: Hospital Case Study: Hospital 100% Visibility, 30% Reduction in Energy Costs The Environment 90+ Switches 800 VOIP Phones 800 PCs 300 Printers
Case Study: Hospital 100% Visibility, 30% Reduction in Energy Costs The Results Easily deployed in a challenging environment, as the hospital operates 24 hours per day Gave 100% visibility into energy consumed throughout their IT environment, across multiple locations & arranged by dept. Reduced energy consumption by more than 30%.
Case Study: School System Fast, Agentless Deployment; $42k in Savings The Challenge School system had very high annual utility expenditure and was seeking a way to drive down costs.
The Environment PCs Case Study: School System Fast, Agentless Deployment; $42k in Savings Laptops Printers Switches Routers
Case Study: School System Fast, Agentless Deployment; $42k in Savings The Results Identified over 1,800 devices that were left on during week nights after hours and 1,200 devices that were left on over the weekends. Identified all older PCs that were drawing higher power and were excellent candidates for replacement with newer, energy efficient machines. By enabling Energy Management policies, the school system was able to reduce their energy costs by 35%. Annual savings of $42.5K plus local utility rebate of $10k.
