ATLANTA, May 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- JouleX, the leading innovator in enterprise energy management systems for data centers, distributed office environments, and facilities, today announced it has been named a "Cool Vendor" in the "Cool Vendors in Green IT and Sustainability, 2011"(1) report by Gartner, Inc. This report highlights companies that develop "technologies and services that enable organizations to improve agility and business performance by pursuing sustainability strategies."
According to Gartner, "There has been a shift away from tools that singularly consider the reporting or analysis of carbon toward technologies that visualize and more efficiently manage energy, and provide more holistic analysis of sustainable performance and asset management. Midsize to large organizations should be developing a more integrated approach to energy management across all major energy-consuming classes of assets."(2)
The company's flagship solution, JouleX Energy Manager (JEM), is the first network-based, "agentless" energy management system that measures the energy consumption and utilization of all network-connected devices and systems to provide visibility into power usage across the enterprise.
"We consider our inclusion in the Cool Vendor report by Gartner confirmation of our mission to enable enterprises to automate energy management and drive energy efficiency from the core to the edge of their networks," said Tom Noonan, president and CEO at JouleX. "Companies are struggling to understand their energy consumption—and waste—as they look to minimize the effect of rising energy costs, trim operating expenses, optimize resources and reduce their carbon footprints. We will continue to innovate and evolve our product to address these issues and to solve specific energy management challenges in data centers, distributed office environments, and facilities."
