Press Release – 42U Presents at AFCOM’S Data Center World 2009, the World’s Largest Data Center industry Conference

Broomfield, CO—March 26, 2009 — Even in uncertain financial times, 42U, the nation’s largest, vendor-independent data center solutions and service firm, knows where data centers can access fresh capital: their utility bill.

At Data Center World 2009 in Las Vegas, 42U shared with attendees a blueprint to use less energy, shrink their energy bills, and transform their data centers into highly available, highly efficient computing facilities.

“We are excited to present clients with a structured approach to bring efficiency best practices to their data center,” said Steve Lewis, 42U’s Director of Sales. “Our program is designed to help IT and Facilities champion a cost saving effort in their facility.”

42U’s presentation—“Re-engineering to a “Green” Data Center with Measurable ROI”—directed attendees toward low cost, simple adjustments that yield an immediate reduction in energy consumption and expense. These savings, reinvested in efficient technologies and perhaps supplemented by utility rebates, allow data center professionals to demonstrate an ROI and a reduced carbon footprint to their management teams.

At the heart of the savings is consistency. Data centers must know where they currently are on the efficiency curve and continually monitor the results of their ongoing efficiency efforts.

“That’s why we emphasize the initial PUE measurement. Our clients not only benchmark their energy efficiency, they define a repeatable process,” added Lewis. “With each iteration, they can demonstrate continual improvements and validate the efficiency program through their energy and cost savings.”

The result: a data center that’s good for the environment and even better for the enterprise.
