MiserWare Signs Deal with IQT to Provide Software Power Management to NGA
Blacksburg, VA – July 19, 2011 – MiserWare, a leading developer in software power management, today announced a strategic partnership agreement with In-Q-Tel (IQT), the independent strategic investment firm that identifies and delivers innovative technology solutions to support the missions of the U.S. Intelligence Community, to introduce MiserWare’s Granola Enterprise and Datacenter software to the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA).
“NGA is excited to be the first intelligence agency to use MiserWare’s revolutionary technology to reduce power costs and its carbon footprint,” said David. K. White, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency liaison with In-Q-Tel. “We look forward to deploying this capability at our new headquarters in Springfield, Va., and across our two major facilities in the St. Louis, Mo., area as well as our support teams worldwide, in the near future.”
MiserWare’s Granola Enterprise software enables users to reduce their environmental footprint and track energy savings over thousands of computer systems. The smart software automatically slows down the processor when the workload is low and brings it back up to maximum speed when needed. Granola can save as much as 35 percent of total system energy without ever impacting the computers’ working performance. As part of this strategic partnership, MiserWare will work closely with IQT and its customers to expand the features of the Granola Datacenter software.
“The U.S. Intelligence Community is more focused than ever before on reducing energy waste,” said William Strecker, Executive Vice President of Architecture & Engineering and CTO at IQT. “MiserWare’s Granola Datacenter software is designed to save energy without loss of availability in mission critical government systems.”
“Our partnership with IQT will provide access to government customers focused on energy management in the data center,” said MiserWare CEO Kirk W. Cameron. “The potential energy waste reductions resulting from this partnership will support the dynamic computing needs of the U.S. Intelligence Community.”
MiserWare makes software that reduces energy waste in computers. Their patent-pending technologies ensure energy reductions without loss of performance or availability. Granola software power management is MiserWare’s flagship product and is available for free for personal use. Granola has been listed on TIME Magazine’s Top 20 Green Tech Ideas and PC Magazines Best Free Utility Software. Granola is also available for business use in versions for the enterprise and data centers. Follow MiserWare on Twitter and Facebook.
