SAN RAMON, CA, January 13th, 2010 — Faronics, a recognized industry leader in reducing enterprise IT energy waste, announced today the release of Power Save 4.0. The latest release of the award winning desktop energy management software now features the capability to create multiple Power Plans and Power Policies, allowing enterprise customers further customization of their power management strategies. Also included in this version is the ability to automatically save Microsoft Office documents prior to shutdown. Power Save works by analyzing CPU, disk, keyboard, mouse, application, and now network activity, prior to taking any power management actions — a key requirement for delivering non-disruptive computer energy management.
The introduction of Power Save 4.0 coincides with the release of the new Faronics Core version 3, whose newly revised architecture delivers improved, enterprise-ready security and scalability. Thanks to the multi-tier workstation management of the Faronics Core, administrators can now utilize multiple consoles, servers, and databases depending on an organization’s requirements while managing their Power Save workstation energy configurations more flexibly.
Faronics Power Save provides organizations with centralized computer energy management and real-time savings reports, allowing companies to continuously maximize their savings by powering IT down daily. Over 1,000 Faronics Power Save customers have already dramatically reduced operating costs by eliminating up to 70% of their computer energy consumption. These savings equate to up to $75,000 annually for every 1,000 computers.
“In these difficult times, our school district is always looking for ways to save money. By using Faronics Power Save, we’ve been able to successfully cut our costs by shutting down computers that are not in use,” said Ryan Fischer, Information Systems & Network Specialist, Rim of the World USD Technology Services. “Power Save’s reporting has been able to prove to us that the savings are real. Some of the features in newly released Power Save 4.0 that we are excited about include the ability to run scheduled tasks without keeping the administrator computer running, greater customization of energy settings via Power Plans, and the option to automatically save open documents before a computer shuts down.”
