PowerFile Joins Green Grid

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- PowerFile Inc., an innovator in archive appliances for permanent storage of digital content and assets, today announced its membership in The Green Grid, a global consortium of companies dedicated to advancing energy efficiency in data centers and computing ecosystems.

Membership in The Green Grid is reserved for end users and technology suppliers that seek to provide industry-wide recommendations or best practices, metrics and technologies that address global energy consumption issues. The technology-driven organization strives for real results with all consortium members working together to find a solution.

As more and more organizations struggle with requirements associated with maintaining growing levels of data, energy and management expenses continue to climb to points that are costly from both an economic and environmental standpoint,” said Jonathan Buckley, Vice President of Marketing for PowerFile. “By joining The Green Grid we are able to address the issue of energy efficiency in a positive, proactive manner, working with others to continue developing environmentally friendly solutions for the data center. PowerFile anticipates it will announce different utility-provided rebate programs in North America in the coming months for the adoption of PowerFile’s cleaner and greener solutions so that customers will not only be able to earn a financial rebate, but can be a good global citizen at the same time.”
