Riverbed has announced new energy efficiency capabilities through its leading digital experience management (DEM) solution, Alluvio Aternity. Available later this month, Aternity will include pre-built dashboards that provide insights to IT leaders and employees on the environmental impact of device usage throughout an organization. Combined with automation and Aternity Sentiment surveying capabilities, the solution supports sustainability initiatives, energy-efficiency awareness and reporting requirements while helping to reduce costs associated with avoidable energy consumption.
Aternity captures and correlates granular, actual end-user performance data from all applications and devices, translating it into actionable, environmental insights to reduce carbon emissions. With the new energy efficiency offering, organizations can now view and identify laptops and PCs that are running and consuming energy even when not in active use. With this insight, IT teams can automate a change in power settings to all or some of those devices to significantly reduce overall energy consumption across the enterprise.
The new energy-efficiency offering also includes proactive messages that inform users about their energy consumption and provides remediations to drive changes in employee behaviour. Alluvio Aternity also offers sentiment survey templates to enhance employee engagement and promote the adoption of sustainable practices for a positive environmental impact.
“Riverbed’s new energy efficiency capabilities support a key sustainability goal that many IT organizations are prioritizing to achieve results, which is both good for the environment and reducing costs,” said Richard Tworek, Chief Technology Officer, Alluvio, at Riverbed. “With hybrid work models, it is difficult to determine end-user device power consumption if workers are no longer in the office. With Riverbed’s Alluvio Unified Observability portfolio, we are in a unique position to serve as the foundation for a variety of sustainability initiatives that rely on data accuracy. Today, Riverbed
s bringing to market the first of several Alluvio sustainability capabilities that will provide actionable, environmental insights and automation so that organizations can reduce their carbon footprint.”
“I’m enthusiastic about Riverbed’s new sustainability capabilities in Alluvio Aternity and I think that it’s a major step in the right direction to provide organizations with tools that can more accurately measure their energy usage, carbon footprint, and environmental impact of the device throughout its lifecycle,” said Jon Brown, Senior Analyst, Cloud, IT Operations and Sustainability at Enterprise Strategy Group. “I expect that technology such as this will be important to an organization’s overall ability to meet their ESG commitments.”
