Data Center Solutions for Using Less Power While Generating New Revenue Sources

San Diego, CA, December 07, 2007 --( Data Centers are facing challenges on a scale never before seen. Increases in demands for services such as Internet services (i.e. music, video, telephony) have caused data center power consumption to double in a span of just five years, in many cases. According to a report by Advanced Micro Devices, the electricity used to power data centers in the US saw a 14 percent annual growth rate between 2000 and 2005.

“Data centers need to get a handle on electricity usage and, at the same time, find ways to supplement revenue to offset this huge increase in expenses,” said Justin Piotroski, regional sales manager for Network Insight, a San Diego-based network managed services and design firm. “The Data Center 3.0 solution combined with revenue-generating managed services could be just the answer for many data centers and collocations.”

Cisco and Network Insight have developed a joint solution to address the challenges faced by these data centers. The program, called “Go Green2” is a two-fold solution. It combines Cisco’s Data center 3.0 platform with Network Insight’s carrier-grade managed services. Data centers and collocation find themselves benefiting from:

Virtualization, Consolidation and Load Balancing to:
• Minimize energy and cooling costs
• Ensure top application performance
• Optimize hardware investments

Services for better management or for resell to customers:
• 24x7 server monitoring
• 24x7 data center device monitoring
• Online portal with access to reports and self-management tools
