April 20, 2009 by  

Web Hosting ToolsMIAMI – Terremark Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ:TMRK), a leading global provider of managed IT infrastructure services, today announced IDG’s Computerworld, the “Voice of IT Management,” has selected it as one of the top Green-IT Organizations for 2009. This honor is part of the IT media outlet’s annual Top Green-IT Organizations feature, which was published in the April 20 issue of Computerworld and online at Computerworld.com.

For the second year in a row, Computerworld set out to identify organizations that are implementing smart, efficient strategies to achieve “green IT.” Computerworld then applied a set of criteria, developed with the help of green-IT industry experts, to identify the organizations that are working to reduce energy consumption in IT equipment and are using technology to conserve energy and lower carbon emissions. Based on the weighting scheme developed, the top 12 Green-IT Users and top 12 Green-IT Vendors lists were chosen from the 94 participating organizations.

“Maximizing the energy efficiency across our data centers has the dual effect of reducing our operational costs and limiting our overall impact on the environment,” said Manuel D. Medina, Chairman and CEO of Terremark. “Our commitment to energy efficiency extends across our company from the innovative products and services we provide government and enterprise customers to the methods we use to cool our facilities.”

Terremark utilizes various energy-efficient methods across its global data center footprint to reduce its power consumption, including hot-aisle/cold-aisle air segregation, computational fluid dynamics modeling (CFD) and employing rotary uninterruptible power supply systems (UPS). Along with implementing innovative power conservation strategies in its world-class data centers, Terremark’s suite of industry-leading virtualized products provides customers with reliable, enterprise-ready solutions for their IT infrastructure needs while minimizing their environmental impact.

“Smart organizations know that there are energy and money savings beyond data center walls, and even beyond the IT department. Green-IT efforts are found up and down the supply chain, from the data center to the desktop, from the mainframe to the end user,” said Scot Finnie, editor in chief, Computerworld. “The organizations recognized in our second annual Top Green-IT issue have explored new ways to apply technology to reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions in every part of their operations.”
