HP Agrees that Citrix Is PowerSmart
Citrix Systems has announced a unique PowerSmart capability designed for organizations seeking to reduce datacenter power consumption as part of their application delivery infrastructure strategy. The new PowerSmart feature, which will be available as part of the Citrix Presentation Server product line, will enable organizations to set policies that automatically adjust server power consumption in response to application traffic levels to more effectively manage power during non-peak hours.
HP is the first server vendor to demonstrate support for PowerSmart in conjunction with its power management tools for the HP ProLiant server family. The combination of Citrix’s application delivery infrastructure with HP’s focus on assisting customers to achieve better datacenter efficiency should help customers support green initiatives and best practices by increasing utilization of existing infrastructure while lowering consumption of power and cooling resources. Citrix stated that the new PowerSmart feature could help organizations reduce energy consumption in the datacenter by up to 50%. PowerSmart is compatible with all current versions and editions of Citrix Presentation Server and iLO-enabled HP servers. PowerSmart will be available in December to all Citrix Presentation Server customers as a free download.
