"Today's customers are seeking highly-efficient, easy-to-scale co-location space to support their business initiatives," said Elizabeth Given, President and CEO of iTRACS.

"We look forward to providing our customers with even greater operational efficiency, scalability, and business value."
The iTRACS and EDH partnership provides co-lo customers with a new level of operational efficiency and business value in the following areas:
Command and control over assets. EDH and its customers can now see and manage their entire inventories (data halls) in iTRACS' interactive model. With this new level of visibility, EDH and its customers can respond more efficiently to changing business needs and service level requirements.
Lower energy costs. iTRACS helps EDH and its customers reduce energy consumption and costs by consolidating hardware that is unused or underutilized, streamlining the power chain, and eliminating stranded power. Reducing energy consumption and maximizing energy efficiency is core to EDH's strategy to exceed customer expectations.
Better capacity management. This means getting the most out of EDH's existing capacity by optimizing assets, power, space, and cooling without putting customer operations at risk. All of this leads to higher efficiency – more business output from customers' existing capacity and the ability to respond quickly and efficiently to new business needs within the EDH footprint.
Transparency and cost containment. Customers now have better insight into the infrastructure and can proactively explore ways to reduce operational costs. End-users can work side-by-side with EDH and its operator using the same iTRACS visual model to ensure the infrastructure is being used in an optimal manner.
