Newport Independent is a school district located in Newport, KY, and is composed of three elementary schools (grades K-5), a middle school (grades 6-8) and a high school (grades 9-12). Newport Independent’s IT infrastructure is comprised of 900 workstations and 20 servers. Newport Independent’s past experiences with the basic power saving settings provided with the operating system were less than positive; the power saving settings offered little flexibility, and often the computers would stop responding.
Power Save’s energy management features were able to bring the district’s computers in line with Newport Independent’s energy policy. The benefits are not only financial, but environmental too. The less energy that the computers use, the smaller the carbon footprint they create. The IT team is also able to control their multi-site Power Save deployments from a single location.
