'Thou Shalt Turn Off Thy PC?’ – Verismic Rewrites the PC Power Management Commandments
Power Manager 3.0 saves up to 20 per cent additional energy while your PC is still running
Dynamic Efficiency , a key feature of Power Manager 3.0, acts as the intelligent ‘engine management’ of the systems, ‘throttling back’ to reduce power consumption when users or applications are idle, but immediately and automatically ‘throttling up’ when performance is required. By leveraging the capabilities of Dynamic Efficiency within a data centre environment, organisations can also benefit from energy and cost reductions whilst ensuring servers and resources remain immediately available when needed. The result is that energy and cost savings can be extended to systems that traditional solutions would class as no-go areas.
Verismic also recognises the important role that the user population plays in the effectiveness of any environmental or efficiency initiative that a business may undertake, and that PC power management is only one aspect of a comprehensive environmental policy. The User Education & Awareness capabilities within Power Manager 3.0 keep users informed of their personal contribution to PC energy efficiency including visibility of how they compare to their peers to fully involve users in increasing overall efficiencies.
Also, as part of this ‘Bigger Picture’ approach, Power Manager 3.0 empowers other areas of the business to promote efficiency and environmental initiatives that go beyond just PC power management. Via its ‘Tip of the Day’ capability, activities or energy saving methods that cannot be enforced through PC policies can be actively promoted to encourage positive changes in end-user behaviour. Verismic Power Manager therefore plays a vital role in any businesses’ environmental plans.
“Gone is the argument that the only way to power manage your estate is by switching off your devices,” says Mark McGinn, Managing Director of Verismic. “Historically, device power management has meant turning off or putting to sleep the device, and while this is the largest saving potential, it is also the reason why certain types of devices, most notably ‘critical systems’ or Servers are completely excluded from PC power management. By engaging users, by innovative new approaches such as Dynamic Efficiency, Verismic is ensuring that the cost and carbon reduction benefits of power management technology can be experienced by all.”
Verismic Power Manager 3.0 is the only solution that recognises the importance of involving all devices and the user population as a whole to effect the greatest savings and behavioural change. All of these aspects are critical to achieving overall carbon reduction and cost savings and require a solution that does more than simply dictating via a PC Power Management policy.
Power Manager 3.0 is available in three delivery options: onsite, hosted in the cloud and via your Managed Service Providers. Power Manager 3.0 is available now.
