Dell has announced an energy-efficiency product strategy, underscoring the importance of reduced power consumption for businesses.
The company has released an energy resource guide at www.dell.com/energy to help customers project their power needs using Dell products.
“Dell is committed to providing our customers with products that have the most performance per watt,” said Dell chief executive officer Kevin Rollins.
“Our energy-efficient products help customers lower cost of ownership and help meet the broader goal of protecting the environment. It’s critical that our entire industry address this important issue.”
Customers visiting Dell’s energy resource site can view the energy-efficient features of several Dell product families, and access energy calculators to help estimate power needs.
A calculator is available for the energy-efficient DellTM OptiPlex 745 desktop system which has just been launched, and calculators for other product families will be available later this year.
A separate data centre capacity planner allows customers to drag and drop their desired configuration of products into a virtual server rack, and estimate the power needed to run their IT operations.
