Appliance Deployment Provider NEI Receives Prestigious Nod
By Jamie Epstein, TMCnet Web Editor
Recently, appliance deployment provider NEI (News - Alert) received the INTERNET TELEPHONY 2012 Product of the Year Award. The company was awarded this distinction for its D-Series of direct current (DC)—powered servers, a robust portfolio that encompasses the D-1000 and D-2000 380V DC rack mount servers which have been created from the ground up in order to power much more energy-efficient data center products.
Complete with the Intel (News - Alert) Xeon Dual Socket CPUs that provide an unparalleled level of performance to DC-powered data centers, customers leveraging this offering can easily develop data center solutions that meet their individual needs.
“The D-Series is an ideal platform for ISVs and OEMs that want to leverage renewable and sustainable energy sources and market “green” co-location and data center solutions,” said Jeff Hudgins (News - Alert), vice president of Marketing, NEI in a statement.“We are pleased to be recognized by TMC (News - Alert) for our platform expertise, technical excellence, and commitment to developing energy-efficient IT server platforms.”
It is key to sustaining our current environment that businesses team with a firm that is environmentally responsible, which in turn could possibly lead to new business opportunities as environmental stewardship is increasingly taken into consideration when choosing partners.
In a recent blog post, NEI stated that “Recycling reduces the amount of energy needed to create new electronics, recovers precious valuable resources, and prevents heavy metals and other toxins from contaminating the soil, water, and air. In addition, electronic recycling ensures that data is properly destroyed, materials are appropriately recovered and reused, and businesses have a paper trail to document the proper disposal of their assets.”
The appliance deployment provider is allowing the world to become “greener” one step at a time, helping to not only develop much more efficient products but also promote the recycling of outdated products that can be implemented within any enterprise environment.
“Electronics contain a variety of materials that can be recovered and reused if they have been properly placed in the e-recycling stream. Even those materials that cannot be reused can be segregated for safe disposal to keep them from harming the environment. Metals such as gold, copper, palladium, silver, platinum, and aluminum, heavy metals like lead, cadmium, and arsenic, and other materials including glass, plastic, and petroleum products exist in various degrees in electronic components, and all of them can be recovered and sold on the open market or safely discarded,” the post added.
If you are seeking the ideal partner who has years of experience in building custom infrastructures which will not only reduce costs but help to eliminate the current challenges faced by our ecosystem, NEI could very well be your answer.
