BLADE Joins The Green Grid to Promote Energy-Efficiency in Data Center Virtualization

BLADE Will Promote the Energy Efficiency of Today's Data Centers through Implementing "Green" Networking Infrastructures

BLADE Network Technologies announced that it has joined The Green Grid consortium. As a member of the consortium, BLADE will promote the energy efficiency of today's data centers through best practices for implementing "green" networking infrastructures. As a pioneer of energy-efficient data center networking, BLADE is recognized on AlwaysOn's GoingGreen 100 list of the world's foremost "green" companies.

The Green Grid is a global consortium dedicated to advancing energy efficiency in data centers and business computing ecosystems. It seeks to provide industry-wide recommendations on best practices, metrics, standards and technologies that will improve overall energy efficiency in data centers and business computing ecosystems. Joining The Green Grid is part of BLADE's initiative to deliver advanced data center networking with the industry's lowest power and cooling requirements.

BLADE is a proponent of "Rackonomics," which recommends that an energy-efficient data center should be made up of replicated racks that have standard configurations of servers, storage and network. Rackonomics-based data centers can realize lower ongoing total cost of ownership through improved energy efficiency.

"The Green Grid is leading the way forward to the energy-efficient data center," said Andre Luthard, Chief Green Officer, BLADE Network Technologies. "At a time when data center standards are not yet clearly identified, understood or adopted -- particularly when it comes to networking equipment -- BLADE is committed to leading the charge towards recognized industry best practices by deploying Rackonomic solutions for energy efficiency and economically-sound environmental value."
