  • (1888PressRelease) August 25, 2010 - Computer Lab Solutions is happy announce a product to the LabStats Suite that offers energy efficiency for computer labs. JuicePress software helps computer lab managers to track the amount of energy used by every computer in a large networked I.T. environment, and alerts lab managers how to harness that energy to better use.

    Christian Hayes, a founder of Computer Lab Solutions, felt that energy saving software would be a great benefit to current and future clients currently using LabStats.

    "One of the convincing facts that I had at my disposal was that I had seen many of my customers' LabStats reports over the years. Because LabStats has always reported when computers are on or off, as well as in use, I could easily tell whether schools were powering down machines, or just leaving them on when the lab was open, regardless of the usage. I started to realize that many schools just left the computers on, for whatever reason, which helped convince me of the opportunity to save," said Hayes.

    While most computers come equipped with power saving settings, many need to be configured individually; a daunting task when a lab has 1000+ computers to manage. JuicePress allows lab managers to control all of their computers from one central location.

    "Many of the labs we work with used to leave their computers running all day and all night, including weekends, which amounted to thousands of kilowatts being wasted during empty lab times. It wasn't that universities didn't want to power manage their labs, they just didn't have an efficient way of doing so," said Josh Norman, CRO of Computer Lab Solutions.

    The average university computer lab wastes 300,000 kWh of electricity per year. This doesn't just waste energy, but wears down equipment. JuicePress is a full featured power management software that keeps computers turned on when needed, and powered down when idle.

    Features include Power Schedules and Power Schemes, and both deliver detailed reports to help lab managers make informed decisions.

    Power Schemes allow users to tailor computer energy consumption based on how computers are being used: individualized power settings for peak or low usage hours, waking up and shutting down, and computer maintenance. Power Schemes help define the power consuming behavior of computers based on optimal power settings.

    Power Schedules allow users to arrange Power Schemes in a calendar set by an hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly basis - all customized to fit best with a lab's needs. Power Schedules and Power Schemes can be customized for entire labs or individual computers.

    JuicePress energy efficiency software allows universities to save otherwise wasted energy, and to better control budgeting by saving money on energy saved.
