NEC India unveiled Eco Center the energy saving server. Eco Center consumes up to 55 percent less power, occupies up to 50 percent less space and is approximately 58 percent lighter than conventional servers due to the leveraging of NEC technologies, such as highly efficient batteries, the optimum cooling functions of high-density packaging, and the adoption of advanced low power CPUs, chipsets and memory. The environment-friendly server supports Windows-2003, Windows-2008, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
On the launch Abhilesh Guleria, Country Manager-IT Platform Business, NEC India said, “NEC Corporation has concluded development on the Eco Center, a specialized space and energy-saving server. NEC Corporation realizes the requirements of its customers by closely working with them and always works to innovate the products accordingly. The server is one such product, which takes care off all the requirements of the customers in today's scenario. Loaded with a-cut-above-rest technology, it assists our customers in cutting their power consumption costs and space costs significantly.”
It achieves maximum energy-saving benefits by capitalizing on the optimization technology of NEC's Sigma System Center integrated with VMware's ESX 3.5 to streamline allocation of operations in response to hardware demands.
The Eco Center is suited for the large-scale application servers and web servers being used in major enterprises and government agency data centers. With energy-saving IT devices attracting considerable attention in the battle against global warming, NEC intends to actively market the Eco Center as the core product in its Real IT Cool Project. An initiative that aims to cut the power used by customer IT platforms by 50 percent YoY, and to realize a cumulative reduction in CO2 emissions from IT devices by approximately 910,000 tons by 2012.
