Green IT Campaign to help businesses cut power used by IT systems
Kent, UK - Jan 15, 2010
IT managed services specialist ADA Technology Services will be running a series of free seminars throughout the first half of 2010 to help businesses realise the benefits of Green IT and virtualisation technologies.
Each Green IT seminar will outline the practical steps mid-size companies can take to dramatically reduce the amount of power their IT infrastructures use. Other benefits include reduced operating costs and improved disaster recovery capabilities.
Roger Woodcock, Senior Sales Manager at ADA said “ADA takes its position as an influencer in the Green IT solutions arena very seriously. These interactive workshops will give organisations the opportunity to learn from live virtualisation projects and to meet organisations who have already made the move to either server or desktop virtualisation infrastructures”.
Woodcock went on to say “Organisations can learn from ADA’s own use of thin client desktop devices. We have enjoyed low power usage and reduced operational overheads now for five years. Furthermore, our adoption of thin client devices made the relocation of ADA’s Kent office very straightforward. Run on a virtualised desktop VMware platform, the process of moving offices was greatly simplified because all data was held and backed up centrally at ADA’s primary data centre in Sussex.”
The first of these half day Green IT seminars will take place on Thursday 25th February at the Capital Enterprise Centre, West Malling, Kent. Each session will focus on building a business case for the acquisition of Green Technology from ‘proof of concept’ to a formal virtualisation assessment. The benefits of VMware’s desktop virtualisation platform (VMware View 4.0) and RES Software’s user workspace management tools (RES PowerFuse & RES Wisdom) will be discussed. The agenda will also set aside time to compare virtualised SAN products from Dell EqualLogic, HP LeftHand and NetApp.
Supported by a range of vendor approved finance options, ADA hopes that companies throughout the UK will be able to realise both the environmental and the cost benefits associated with Green IT investment. Payment over time options allow organisations to significantly reduce their initial capital expenditure. Consequently, ADA has helped numerous companies move to a fully virtualised environment long before budgeted funds become available.
To ensure each participant receives the maximum benefit, attendance at each event will be strictly limited to 20 delegates. To reserve your place, phone 01444 232 000.
