Discover what you are spending, and what you could save using eiPower Cloud Services
IDC tracks the public cloud services market more closely than any research firm.
The rate of cloud adoption growth continues to impress:
Public IT cloud services spending reached $47.4 billion in 2013 and will reach nearly $108 billion in 2017, with a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 23.5% – five times the growth of the IT industry as a whole.
SaaS will remain the largest public IT cloud service category through 2017 (57.9% in 2017), while PaaS and IaaS will grow faster than SaaS over the next five years.
Emerging markets will grow 1.8X faster than developed markets, and begin to close the gap on the size of the markets. By 2017, emerging markets will account for 21.3% of the public cloud opportunity.
According to Gartner, desktop and laptop computers consume up to 40% of the IT budget. Not good news when Power costs are at all-time highs. Managing power costs has become a significant computer lifecycle management component. Similar to mission critical and ubiquitous patch management applications used to prevent expensive downtime and restoration, eiPower is a production system energy management application.
Production system means saving energy while allowing users to perform their tasks, and IT to perform their maintenance. Using eiPower Tiered Cloud Service, reducing the cost of doing business has NEVER been more simple. Electricity costs rise 4.2% annually and 42% over the past 10 years. 2eiPower Saver Solution reduces the cost of doing business by using production system power schemes and justifies savings with detailed kWh usage, cost, and carbon emissions reports.

This tier is positioned to add on-demand functionality to enhance existing IT mission critical responsibilities.
The effects of budget cuts, offshore outsourcing, and downsizing have left IT staff strained to run the core business. At any organization, User Productivity is prioritized, and necessary IT maintenance tasks either compete for time, or computers are left powered on wasting electricity, and costing the organization significant expense. eiPower Cloud Service IT Enhancement Tier enables organizations to create reliable Maintenance Periods using Any Time or Date, with the ability to wake computers from low power mode, on a schedule without using WOL, vPro, or AMT.
Security conscious companies can now ensure 100% patch/software delivery effectiveness, and immediate application of Day-Zero patches by ensuring the computer is powered on to receive jobs. No need to leave computers on wasting electricity just to maintain them.
Schedule Anti-Virus updates and scans off hours to ensure 100% reliable and effective malware identification.
Put an end to productivity delays, and user frustration when waiting for left over evening jobs to finish when users need to be productive in the morning.
Simply schedule computers to be on during evening tasks, and shutdown or left in low power mode when done.
A simple POC not affecting desktop settings, will quantify GPO/utility performance alone, or compare them with eiPower schemes. For both, simply deploy the agent, wait until fully deployed, capture data for 20 days, and run reports. MINIMAL IT participation, MAXIMUM results.
Microsoft states there is no way to report on the effectiveness of Group Policy Objects. Vendor utilities that set power schemes do not have production system qualities, and have no way to quantify their savings. Many IT departments set GPOs however, have no way to run maintenance items such as Anti-Virus, Patch Management, or Software Delivery tasks. Additionally, using these utilities provides no way to quantify savings and ROI, or verification these utilities are working across the enterprise. Setting GPOs or utility power scheme levels is a guess at best, with no way to ascertain optimal settings. These tools lack production system features, as well as detailed reporting. Many US utilities will not qualify GPOs or Vendor Utilities for rebates because of this.
With Power Costs at all-time highs, companies need a production system application to manage the high cost of power. Similar to companies utilizing centrally managed production system patch management solutions to minimize expensive downtime from malware, eiPower provides business metrics to monitor, manage, and minimize a costly computer lifecycle item – power.
Using the eiPower Measurement Cloud Service, organizations are now able to measure and report the effectiveness of Power Scheme Group Policy Objects or Vendor Utilities and can compare them with eiPower production system features.
