COLUMBUS, OH -- (Marketwired) -- 07/24/14 -- While owners of multifamily units are increasingly looking for ways to manage costs through energy efficiency, acquiring the necessary data has typically been so difficult as to make such programs unmanageable. Now, Nationwide Energy Partners is using a proprietary data collection and analytics platform to extend cost savings to residents and developers of condominiums and multifamily communities.
"The foundation of any good energy efficiency or cost-management program is data," said Mike Palackdharry, Nationwide Energy Partners' president. "Nationwide Energy Partners has one of the most sophisticated data collection and analysis systems in the industry, allowing us to look at everything from individual unit consumption, to Common Area Usage, to leak detection, to general account issues such as customer feedback. This means we can help property owners squeeze energy savings out of buildings, which has almost been close to impossible previously."
Property managers experience the same challenges as residents and condominium owners when they try to determine unit and common area energy costs. Nationwide Energy Partners analyzes community-level data that examines correlations between usage and property attributes, or between usage and unit type. "Providing that data -- and providing proactive solutions to curb waste -- helps owners address issues and operate more efficiently," Palackdharry said.
Nationwide Energy Partners is uniquely equipped to pinpoint the causes of other inflated Common Area Usage costs. In a recent example, Nationwide Energy Partners' common area energy usage monitoring team noticed extremely high levels of common area usage at one of the properties they serve. They identified the top causes of the high energy and recommended multiple solutions for the community to implement, saving them $18,000 a year and reducing residents' bills per month.
Nationwide Energy Partners' data collection and analytics platform is a critical vehicle in helping to make energy use more transparent for both property owners and residents. Earlier this year, the company reinvented its utility bills to show residents of multifamily units their patterns of electricity and water consumption using graphics and comparisons with average costs in their buildings.
"We believe that residents in apartments and condominiums deserve the same transparency afforded to those in single-family homes and businesses," Palackdharry said. "And we believe that property owners, given the tools, want to help cut waste and costs, as well. Our mission is to make both the norm for our customers."

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In his general session at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore...

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...
