SAN RAMON, CA, June 29th, 2010 — Faronics, global leader in computer power management and cost reducing IT solutions, announced today that Danish satellite specialist Thrane & Thrane is saving 250,000 Kroner (approximately $45,000) a year by shutting down their inactive PCs with Faronics Power Save. Thrane & Thrane purchased the energy saving software through Faronics Preferred Partner CompleteWare and deployed it on 800 workstations. With the help of a grant from utility provider Danish Oil and Gas, the investment in Power Save will pay for itself within a year.
Prior to using Power Save, Thrane & Thrane did not have an existing centralized PC power management plan, so any shut-down settings were left to the users to decide. Because of the central role computers play in both development and production at Thrane & Thrane, it is often required that computers remain powered on during the evenings and over weekends.
“It was essential for us to choose a solution that interacted well with our business,” said Morten Lyckegaard, IT Operations Manager at Thrane & Thrane. “This is why we chose Faronics Power Save; it was the only solution we looked at that contained intelligent management tools at both central and the employee level.” Thrane & Thrane is one of the world’s leading developers and manufacturers of global mobile satellite and radio communications for use at sea, on land, or air. Established in 1981, they currently operate on over 800 workstations and 100 servers.
Power Save provides intelligent energy management to over 1,500 customers in 37 countries. Power Save works by analyzing CPU, application activity, disk, keyboard, network, and mouse status before taking power management actions, and delivers enterprise-wide desktop computer energy management.
