)-- The energy management solution for all Windows® environments
Powerdown minimises energy use and maximises cost savings by controlling the power state of individual computers. Idle computers are turned off or placed in a low power state and can be automatically restarted for maintenance or operational purposes.
Unlike competing solutions Powerdown does not rely on computers being connected to the network to achieve energy savings and it is also the only solution specifically designed with electrical safety and the needs of laptop users in mind.
Simple to adopt, easy to manage
Powerdown offers centralised management of computer power consumption with simple, fully automated deployment.
Suitable for all
Powerdown is suited to all managed and unmanaged computing environments. It is the ideal solution for standalone computers, home networks, small businesses, educational establishments and fully managed corporate computing environments.
Substantial savings result in low total cost of ownership
Powerdown can reduce IT energy consumption by up to 40% resulting in savings of up to £30 per PC per year and a typical payback period of less than 3 months.
With the introduction of this release Powerdown is now being made freely available to educational institutions and users with less than 10 computers.
Good for the environment
In addition to cost savings, Powerdown can also encourage greater staff awareness of the environmental impact of computer usage and has a key role to play in supporting corporate social responsibility strategies. Powerdown has a positive environmental benefit and can eliminate up to 300kg of carbon emissions per PC per year.
