SAN RAMON, CA, April 22, 2007 — Faronics believes strongly in developing products that reduce the negative effects that technology has on the environment. With environmental issues such as global warming and surging world energy demands on the forefront of global concerns, responsible energy-management is a pivotal factor in fostering long-term environmental sustainability. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates that the emissions generated as a result of wasteful computer and monitor energy consumption is equal to the emissions of three million cars per year. Studies have also shown that only 6% of computers and 53% of monitors employed energy-saving actions during times when offices are closed and user productivity is not required.
Power Save uses intelligent energy management to ensure workstations are available when system resources are required, but conserving power during productivity downtimes. Power Save provides organizations with savings of $15 per year for every computer deployed, as well as centralized workstation power status control. Plus, Power Save is environmentally responsible and offers a complete return on investment within the first year of deployment. With features such as realtime savings reports, policy scheduling, and customizable activity settings based on CPU, disk, and application activity, organizations today have found Power Save to be energy management they can bank on.
“Earth Day is a great opportunity for people and organizations to discover new ways in which they can reduce their environmental impact,” said Shaun Applebaum, Product Manager for Power Save at Faronics. “Power Save allows organizations to increase their commitment to both global and local environmental preservation, meet the needs of their business and users, and generate real-world financial savings.”
A fully functional, 30-day evaluation version of Power Save can be downloaded free of charge at www.faronics.com/powersave. Power Save is currently available for both Windows 2000/XP and Mac OS X 10.3 and higher.
