Sizing Tool Promotes the Use of Energy Efficient Servers

Press release from: SizingLounge Ltd.

Freiburg/Birmingham, April 14th, 2008 -- SizingLounge Ltd. has released a new version of its online sizing tool for servers. The new version now includes energy efficiency criteria variables for TCO calculations and can now also calculate IT energy consumption. Furthermore, the criteria allows users to define the Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) factor for data centres. The PUE has been researched and defined by The Green Grid™ in 2007. Sizinglounge.com has expanded to include innovative options for optimising energy efficiency in data centres. These include a unique server virtualisation feature as well as comparative data for Blade servers. IT experts can confidently use SizingLounge.com as a vendor-independent up-to-date procurement tool that promotes efficient servers.

SizingLounge.com is easy to use: Once the user has chosen a software, the number of users and then clicked the size button, the results for Dell, HP, IBM and Sun servers appear ordered by total costs. With these results, SizingLounge.com then allows to compare the cost-efficiency of different system architectures and operating systems such as UNIX, Linux or Microsoft Windows. SizingLounge.com users can compare the total costs of a Central System with a High Availability Configuration or a Grid Environment. The Sizinglounge.com software portfolio includes a wide range of Databases, Application Servers and Enterprise Applications, such as Apache Web Server, Oracle Database, Oracle E-Business Suite, Microsoft Exchange Server, Microsoft SQL Server and SAP Business Suite.

SizingLounge Ltd. launched its web portal in 2006 to enable organisations to independently size, compare and select Green IT and efficient servers according to their specific business requirements. Since its inception more than 40,000 users from over 160 countries have used SizingLounge to size and select energy efficient servers for their data centres.
