MiserWare offers free organization-wide IT energy footprint with new Granola Enterprise
Blacksburg, VA – April 23, 2012 – Organizations can now quickly and accurately measure their total IT power use at no cost with the official release of Granola Enterprise 5.0. MiserWare developed Granola Enterprise to empower organizations to immediately establish the baseline power consumption for their entire IT infrastructure. From laptops to PCs to the datacenter, organizations can quickly and easily evaluate their energy footprint without the need for expensive hardware.
According to CEO Kirk W. Cameron, a professor at Virginia Tech and pioneer of power measurement and management software, Granola Enterprise was redesigned in response to enterprise and datacenter clients. “Our clients are often mandated to report IT power use,” Cameron elaborated, “A free account now gives organizations access to their IT energy footprint, making it easy to identify energy waste and evaluate power management options.”
In addition to the expanded measurement capabilities, Granola Enterprise offers industry-leading options for energy savings. Joseph Turner, co-founder and VP of Engineering, says that while other products save energy by simply turning systems off when not in use, Granola Enterprise saves up to 35% more by also reducing energy waste while systems are in use. “Our patent-pending performance guarantee technology ensures energy savings with no loss of availability or performance,” said Turner. “That’s why our software is used by clients in all situations from critical datacenter environments to office PCs to battery-powered mobile workforces.”
MiserWare’s Granola Enterprise helps organizations identify and eliminate energy waste in their computers. MiserWare also built the world’s most popular free power management software: Granola Personal. MiserWare’s Granola products have been listed on TIME Magazine’s Top 20 Ways to Go Green and PC Magazines Best Free Software and received a CNET Editor’s Rating of 4.5 stars (out of 5).
