1E has also announced that Bovis Lend Lease, a project management and construction company is working with 1E to deploy its solution across its servers.

With NightWatchman Server Edition, 1E is targeting the $24.7 billion of IT spend wasted each year on servers not doing any useful work. Traditional monitoring tools primarily focus on availability and performance but provide little insight on whether a server is providing any business value.

“The number of unused servers in the world today is staggering. A recent study we commissioned showed that 4.7 million servers in the world are not actively being used. Today, organizations are paying for energy, hardware, maintenance and software licensing, even when servers are not providing any business value. Given the economic and environmental issues we face today, there has never been a greater need for efficiency, especially in servers and data centers,” says Sumir Karayi, chief executive officer and founder of 1E.

The key features of NightWatchman Server Edition are:

Useful Work Analysis: Revolutionizes the measurement of efficiency across servers by showing the useful work a server is performing, the energy its consuming and whether there is any waste. This enables server managers to make informed decisions on decommissioning, consolidation, virtualization and saving energy, with a degree of confidence not available until now.

Drowsy Server: Continuously monitors activity and dynamically minimizes energy consumption when there is no Useful Work being performed without impacting the server availability. When a server is in a Drowsy state, this provides an average saving of 12% in energy costs.

Instant visibility dashboards and reports: Power modeling algorithm enables energy consumption monitoring across all servers without any additional hardware. Report on energy consumption, cost, efficiency and CO2 emissions for all servers or group by location, department, application and more.

Paul Toyne, head of sustainability, Bovis Lend Lease adds, “Sustainability is a guiding principle at Bovis Lend Lease. We are always looking for innovations like 1E’s NightWatchman Server Edition that could bring our carbon base load to a lower level.”

CSC, a provider of technology enabled business solutions and services, is undertaking a case study to measure the benefits of NightWatchman Server Edition.

John Glowacki, corporate vice president, chief technology officer says, “CSC is pleased to partner with 1E in a case study designed to measure the benefits of NightWatchman Server Edition and help CSC meet our sustainability objectives.” Deploying NightWatchman Server Edition makes servers more efficient, enables consolidation of redundant infrastructure, and eliminates costs associated with unnecessary hardware and energy usage. Easy to install, there are no hardware changes required, eliminating the risk of server downtime.
