20 Apr Enterprise Infrastructure Partners Joins Microsoft to Participate in the Department of Energy’s Envision America Program
Enterprise Infrastructure Partners (EIP) is proud to join Microsoft by providing no-cost licensing for qualified participants in the Department of Energy’s 2016 Envision America Program. Envision America is a new Department of Energy Program aimed at helping American cities tackle energy, water waste and carbon reduction challenges. Based on a detailed application process, the Department of Energy chose 10 cities to participate.
Microsoft, an active proponent of sustainable energy initiatives, has provided each of these cities with no-cost Azure services. In conjunction with this, EIP will also provide qualified cities with no-cost licensing of the firm’s Azure-certified eiPower Cloud Services computer power management solution. eiPower is an internationally-known product that enables users to reduce their energy cost burden, reduce carbon emissions and meet sustainability goals.
“This program is a perfect match of technology, sustainability and social responsibility,” says EIP President Joe D’Agostino. “Plus, the benefits to the city go beyond power savings. eiPower Cloud Services not only allows organizations to monitor, assess and manage energy use of their desktops and laptops, it can also wake computers on a schedule without using WOL or vPro, thus enabling organizations to create reliable maintenance periods off hours. This allows patching, anti-virus updates and scans to be done off hours, without disrupting user productivity.
EIP is a software development company based in San Diego, California that designs and develops cost-saving infrastructure applications. eiPower has sold over 1.1 million licenses worldwide.
