Virtustream receives energy rebate from Pacific Gas and Electric Company
Virtustream’s efforts to reduce cooling energy consumption paid off handsomely this past week as PG&E awarded the enterprise class cloud solution provider a large utility rebate. Virtustream tasked Subzero Engineering to provide airflow management in the form of aisle based containment, rack enclosures, and a wireless environmental monitoring system called PolarXpress. This resulted in a lower supply temperature at the rack, which in turn lead to safely increasing CRAC temperature set points. During this time, Virtustream even added several new servers. The overall energy savings was 544,521.5 kWh!
