«We are embracing Eco4Cloud’s Host Thin Provisioning™ as it delivers significant improvements to the optimization of Centered Networks’ highly virtualized multi­‑tenant cloud environment, ultimately achieving significant agility and cost savings. Eco4Cloud, in fact, allows us to dynamically provision only the number of physical servers that our customers’ workloads actually require. This feature is unique to Eco4Cloud in the virtualization world, as it actively manages the number of powered‑­on cores in the server estate, resulting in significant accuracy in capacity management and 40% reductions in electricity and cooling demand. The sum total of benefits include reduced data center space, reduced numbers of physical servers, reduced power and cooling demands, all of which lead to better ROI/profitability and a more competitive offer to our clients.»

«Eco4Cloud’s mission to tackle the energy-efficiency shortcomings of virtualisation, combined with a strong research pedigree, make its technology a very interesting option for data center owners who want to reduce their OpEx and CapEx, as well as refining their Capaciy Planning and DC Operations. Recent market developments in the DCIM space also help to make the case for Eco4Cloud’s technology that aims to improve datacenter efficiency through better workload/virtual machine management

«Adding eco4cloud to a VMware farm is like adding a smart counselor who tells the vCenter which VMs to move and where to move them with a goal in mind: empty some of theESX servers and switch them to standby mode. All this is done continuously checking that all VMs are fine and running smoothly.So eco4cloud not only reduces Opex expenditures by reducing your power consumption but also postpones Capex spending by freeing up ESX servers, making them available for reuse.».
