NTT Communications and Vigilent Win 2012 Green Enterprise IT Award

America, a global infrastructure services provider and wholly owned
subsidiary of NTT
Communications Corporation, and Vigilent,
provider of intelligent energy management systems, announced today that
NTT Communications and Vigilent jointly won the prestigious 2012
Green Enterprise IT (GEIT) Award, presented by Uptime

The companies will be recognized in a joint award for Facility Product
Deployment, which highlights facility infrastructure products that
significantly improve data center energy and resource efficiency. Using
the Vigilent system to address its energy management, NTT Communications
expects to reduce its electricity consumption in North America by over
7.6 million kWh and carbon emissions by 8.8 million lbs. a year, saving
the company a projected $630,000 annually in energy costs.

The GEIT Awards showcase organizations that pioneer energy-efficiency
improvements in their IT and data center organizations. The award will
be presented to Vigilent and NTT Communications at the seventh annual Uptime
Institute Symposium in Santa Clara, California, taking place May
14-17, 2012 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. The companies will
present a case study about their award-winning project to the Symposium

“Projects like this prove that the right technology can deliver both
corporate sustainability and reduced energy costs,” said Andy Lawrence,
program director of the Uptime Institute Symposium and research director
of Eco-Efficient IT at the 451 Group.

NTT Communications, in collaboration with NTT
Worldwide Telecommunications and NTT
Facilities USA, used Vigilent technology to dramatically improve
energy efficiency at its two largest North American data centers using
dynamic, intelligent cooling optimization. This cooling optimization
“virtualizes” cooling operations by dynamically shifting loads from
inefficient and rarely deployed cooling units to more heavily
provisioned cooling equipment for greater energy efficiency in real-time
balance with changing IT loads. In addition to easily measurable carbon
footprint reductions, the Vigilent system improved uptime control at
both facilities.

“NTT Communications is honored to be recognized for our innovative
approach to reducing the amount of energy required to cool our data
centers,” said Tarif Abboushi, vice president of data center
infrastructure for NTT America. “Working with Vigilent, we brought
real-time energy management to our two largest North American data
centers with significant carbon emission and energy cost savings, as
well as improving our uptime stability.”

“It is rewarding to be cited as an innovator for work that we are
already so proud of,” said Mark Housley, Vigilent CEO. “NTT is a great
partner, and has shown by example that intelligent energy management
built with powerful analytics can positively benefit the bottom line,
corporate sustainability objectives, and the planet.”
