SAN RAMON, CA, January 30, 2007 — Faronics announces the release and immediate availability of Faronics Power Save, an effective and reliable tool that provides central management of energy consumption throughout an enterprise.
Computers are essential items for business and communications, but are a major consumer of energy resources. If computers are not managed properly during downtimes, they can increase the energy costs of an organization dramatically. Organizations today realize that power management is a strategic investment that is not only financially responsible, but environmentally as well.
Power Save goes above and beyond the basic power saving features provided by the operating system, and matches computer energy consumption with the activity level of the user. Power Save gives administrators a number of options to customize an installation package to suit the needs of their specific environment, including the frequency of the action, what day(s) of the week the action will occur, as well as time of day. In addition to the ability to deploy Power Save to single or multiple computers with ease, administrators can also configure sleep or shutdowns to take place based on CPU, disk, and application activity. Power Save also has the capability of generating detailed reports outlining enterprise-wide energy consumption levels and associated costs savings, allowing administrators to see the immediate financial and environmental returns on their investment.
“It’s a win-win situation for everyone,” said Shaun Applebaum, the Power Save product manager at Faronics. “The accountants are happy because money is being saved, the system administrators are happy because the computers are always available, and the users are happy because power saving actions are not implemented when workstation productivity is required.”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.
