USONYX and NEC Asia collaborate to power up the energy efficiency of data centres

SINGAPORE, 22 January 2009 - USONYX Singapore, Asia’s leading web hosting service provider, demonstrates their commitment towards environmental preservation with the deployment of the industry’s first eco-friendly server systems.

Developed with the goal of introducing powerful and precise yet environmentally-friendly products into data-centre markets, NEC Express5800/iModel servers feature 1U rack optimized size with dedicated DC use design including electricity-power consumption saving architecture. This helps data centers, which house thousands of servers each, to effectively save huge electricity cost drastically, while enabling them to operate effectively such as remote KVM functionality. These compact NEC servers are also created to significantly reduce power consumption, weight, and cooling requirements, while the energy-efficient power supplies and components work in tandem with optimized designs and active monitoring software management systems to deliver greater operating efficiency in relation to typical server loads.

As the pioneering purchaser of these green machines, USONYX is now positioned to deliver enhanced services to her growing base of consumers at greater value, while offering to them the benefits of these newly deployed servers: greater speed, reliability, longer service life, and the opportunity to do their bit for the environment. As a result of this investment, USONYX has benefitted from increased cost savings, minimized limitations and reduced opportunity costs.

Mr Martin Chan, Managing Director of USONYX is confident that the purchase of these NEC servers will take the organization a step further in her continual goal to provide the web hosting market with revolutionary products and services at unbeatable value. He states: “USONYX has increased the count of our dedicated servers by 50 percent in year 2007 and 2008, making it possible for us to provide our customers with unparalleled web hosting services. With this growth, we are adamant in doing our best for every customer than before. We remain confident that this collaboration with NEC is timely, and in line with our vision for year 2009: To adopt eco-friendly measures as an organization, while providing all our customers more with less impact!”

NEC has been delivering innovations through the past 100 years towards creating an information society that is friendly to humans and the earth. With a commitment to cut COâ‚‚emissions of IT platform in half by 2012, the company has been introducing various energy-saving servers to suit businesses of different nature.

Mr Kiyofumi Kusaka, Regional CEO of NEC Asia, further adds, “The business world today is heavily reliant on technology. To data centres and web hosting companies, sophisticated data processing and information security is particularly vital. However, these means deployment of numerous equipment with more advanced features, which cause their power consumption bar to rise tremendously. By introducing these energy and space-saving servers to our customers, we hope to help these companies, such as USONYX Singapore, to achieve greater efficiency and sustainability, as well as ensuring data reliability and a high level of availability. We also hope to indirectly promote a greener environment together with our clients”.
