eiPower Saver Solution
Discover what you are spending, and what you could save using eiPower Cloud Services.
Companies now have the ability to fulfill and quantify company Green Initiatives with the ability to inventory and manage computer power usage and carbon emissions, using multiple reports, all from the familiar Symantec Management Platform.
eiPower Saver Solution saves organizations up to 40%-55% in energy costs, usage, and carbon emissions by monitoring and managing the power habits of Laptops and Desktop computers.
eiPower Saver reduces the cost of doing business and ensures power savings do not interfere with user productivity by using production system features such as user override of power schemes, dynamic power schemes based on applications or logged on users, and flexible power scheme scheduling
Today’s energy costs are rising globally. According to a study by Lawrence Berkley National Labs, over 80% of users disable their PC power schemes. Central management and enforcement of power settings is a tangible way to save power that is otherwise wasted on desktop computers. Gartner reports 40% of the IT budget is spent on powering desktop PCs.
Leaving PCs on around the clock is simply an outdated practice in the age of rising energy costs. Organizations have complete power control over their PCs, letting users opt out of set power schemes, specify dynamic power schemes if selected applications are running, set more aggressive power schemes than administrators, and provide maintenance schedules to bring PCs in and out of low power mode on a schedule. eiPower Saver Solution inserts wake commands to bring PCs out of low power mode ahead of software delivery or patch jobs for power control without vPro or WOL. When users are outside the facility and need access to company PCs, organizations can save money on energy costs by keeping PCS in low power mode or off. eiPower Saver Solution allows users to securely Power On and access their PCs when offsite using Remote Power On (RPO).
eiPower Saver Solution increases report accuracy with a simple and innovative Administrative Dashboard to quickly identify items requiring maintenance. The Executive Dashboard component lets Executives quickly see the effectiveness of eiPower Saver Solution, and allows them to customize the parameters to get the exact report required.
eiPower Saver Solution policies are enforced to ensure savings, while providing non-obtrusive flexibility to users who demand unbridled access. eiPower Saver Solution overcomes PCs that cannot go into low power mode with proven technology that does not interfere with user productivity, and gives organizations the power savings intended. eiPower Saver Solution seamlessly integrates with any Symantec solution to complement desktop management with complete power control. Use scheduled power policies and/or command line mode to easily integrate power control into third party applications as well.
Manage the Enterprise from one Console. Eliminate multiple point solutions, and avoid costly retraining. Now manage your lifecycle power costs, PCs and Servers all from one console. eiPower Saver Solution is a completely integrated solution, eliminating the need to learn a new GUI, purchase a new server, create separate databases or use painful APIs. Import existing resources from Microsoft Active Directory, and maximize the investment in existing solutions by making Patch, Software Delivery, Asset, or third party applications more effective with complete power control.
eiPower Saver Solution ships with detailed reports that justify utility company rebates, increase energy savings by modeling power schemes, and document Enterprise carbon emission reduction. All eiPower Saver Solution reports are customizable and conform to the same reporting methods Symantec administrators use with other Symantec solutions.
Organizations are investing in Laptops by as much as 50% of the total inventory. eiPower Saver Solution employs Off-Site Detection for Laptops, measuring kWh consumption both on-site at any company facility, and off-site. This technology enables organizations to measure their full kWh usage, cost, and carbon emissions. Off-Site Detection allows company Laptops to qualify for rebates, where normally, utility companies disqualify rebates for Laptops.
With the popularity of PC Anywhere, Webex, and GoTo my PC Products, Remote Access to company computers is being used by many organizations. Leaving the computer on for only a few hours of access wastes significant power. Leverage the SMP to switch on computers or wake the from low power mode using eiPower Saber Solution Remote Power On.
