In response to a growing energy consumption and sustainability crisis in data centers globally, Cleantech IT innovations company Servergy, Inc. has delivered to market its Cleantech Server® line, a new clean and green class of high I/O PowerLinux servers. Servergy is showcasing the hyper-efficiency of the Cleantech Server this week at the World Future Energy Summit, January 20 – 22, 2014 in Abu Dhabi, UAE, where the company is exhibiting at booth #8821 in the US Pavilion. The Cleantech Servers address one of the biggest problems within the data center – power costs – and answer a global demand for improvements in energy efficiency.
With the Internet of Things driving rapid increases in online commerce and online consumption, the world’s digital economy leaves an alarmingly large footprint. The information that we create and consume across global networks reached 2.8 Zettabytes within the past two years, according to IDC1. The analyst firm expects that number to double every two years through 2020, reaching a mammoth 40 Zettabytes. To put that into context, 40 ZB is equal to 57 times the number of all the grains of sand on all the beaches on earth. Much of that information is managed and housed in data centers around the world, and running those data centers requires huge amounts of energy.
A 10-megawatt (MW) data center can use the energy of a small town. Couple that with the fact that there are over 500,000 data centers in the world, according to Emerson Network Power2, the digital universe uses about 10 percent of the world’s electricity – or the combined power production of Germany and Japan3.
“With the global skyrocketing demand for energy, this has become a massive problem for widespread sustainability initiatives. And it will only intensify as the whole world goes online and quickly moves to a smart and connected planet powered by servers,” said Bill Mapp, founder and CEO of Servergy.
“At Servergy, we believe that the ‘new normal’ within data centers globally will be a focus on energy efficiency, especially for ‘new normal’ I/O intensive workloads, such as cloud, caching and storage applications. It will start with the lowest common denominator within the data center – servers,” Mapp continues. “We went all the way back to the innovations lab drawing board and used a zero-sum step-function engineering approach from the ground up to create the next generation of hyper-efficient enterprise servers. Our servers are small, fast, efficient, cool, quiet, light-weight, but also powerful and scalable enough to handle the rapidly growing data, space, cooling and energy demands of data center operators globally. It is everything this data-hungry, power- and real estate-constrained era of big data and cloud needs to solve the space, I/O and energy crises created by the rapidly growing world of exploding data.”
The initial product release in the new Servergy Cleantech Server line, the CTS-1000 server, delivers an industry-leading performance-per-watt PowerLinux server with maximum power consumption of around 100 Watts at full load. In addition to providing energy efficiency, the game-changing new technology literally pays for itself by reducing power, cooling, space, water, weight and carbon footprints by up to 80 percent. Plus, the Cleantech Server line has up to 16 times the I/O and compute density over traditional server technology. The US-built servers weigh only nine pounds and pack two 10GB and two 1GB ports in a server with the footprint the size of a legal pad, i.e., less than one-fourth of 1U.
“Data centers operators globally are searching for answers to their power, cooling and space limitations – all challenges that the CTS-1000 addresses head on,” Mapp said. “Servergy is not just in the business of selling servers. Our ultimate goal is to create and deliver clean and green data center solutions that leverage the power and potential of technology at its best to positively impact all the triple bottom line 3-Ps of People, Profits and Planet. It’s all in our brand tagline and promise – Save Energy. Work Smarter.”
Servergy is convening a community of global partners and suppliers to help promote and expand clean and green technology capabilities worldwide.
Servergy is a Cleantech IT innovations company and thought leader in using open PowerLinux.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as...

Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, will discuss how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the ...

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.

Even though you are running an agile development process, that doesn’t necessarily mean that your performance testing is being conducted in a truly agile way. Saving performance testing for a “final sprint” before release still treats it like a waterfall development step, with all the cost and risk that comes with that. In this post, we will show you how to make load testing happen early and often by putting SLAs on the agile task board.

Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Trel...
