What is Green Computing? How can it impact my business?
Two great questions that eMazzanti Technologies has answers for. Did you know that in addition to effecting your business communications, online threats also contribute to our growing climate crisis? Viruses, malware and spyware often draw on the processing power of your computer, even when you aren’t using it. This consumes energy and adds to CO2 emissions. By using our MXINSPECT anti-malware services you can protect your business and reduce your overall energy consumption . . . and your electric bills.
Your choice of computer hardware and software can also address the question: What is green computing? They both have a significant effect on the environment and your bottom line. For example, computers that run the new Microsoft Windows 7 operating system use less power according to the hands-on experience of the eMazzanti team:
“Trigger Start Services is a new Windows 7 feature that fires-up only when needed. This enables faster start-up and shut down of your computer as well as reducing power consumption,” said Jennifer Mazzanti.
“It takes time for a computer processor to get to a true idle state. Think of it as the deep REM sleep we finally get to at night,” continued Mazzanti. “In previous operating systems and over time, a long list of automatic service requests associated with webcams, IM clients, MP3 players and photo editing applications keeps consuming resources -memory, I/O and CPU. These all bog the computer down. Fortunately, Windows 7 has the answer and ‘batches’ the work or engages just as the resources are needed.”
“The Power Management feature in Windows 7 doubles the battery life of our laptops,” commented Jennifer Mazzanti, “effectively doubling our engineer’s productivity when they’re working on the run without a plug-in power source.”
“Windows 7 is so operationally ‘lean’ that it can run on older hardware,” shared Mazzanti. “That means our customers can extend the life of their hardware investment which often is a mix of new and older machines.”
“Windows 7 has another ‘green’ side,” noted Mazzanti. “Group policy enabled power management is a great new tool to help a company be more environmental friendly. Power savings can be particularly significant across an organization.”
