Extreme Networks announced on Wednesday it has joined The Green Grid, a non-profit organization that promotes the adoption of energy efficient standards, processes, measurements and technologies within data centers.
The Green Grid is a global organization that strives to advance energy efficiency in data centers and business computing ecosystems.
The organization collaborates with other industry groups and government organizations around the world to ensure that each organizational goal is aligned with both developers and users of data center technology.
Telecommunications provider AT&T recently announced that its affiliate, AT&T Services, joined The Green Grid.
"CIO's overseeing data centers are demanding cost-efficient network solutions where a significant portion of their operational costs can be reduced through energy savings," says Paul Hooper, chief marketing officer for Extreme Networks.
"Joining The Green Grid is another example of Extreme Networks ongoing commitment to improving power efficiency with systems, software tools and network designs that reduce energy consumption throughout the network."
Extreme Networks will work with The Green Grid to help develop and deliver energy efficient technologies and best practices for its customers, focusing specifically on the implementation of green technologies in Ethernet switching solutions targeted at data centers.
Earlier this year, Extreme Networks' BlackDiamond 8800 switch was independently evaluated by The Tolly Group to be one of the most efficient modular Ethernet switches in the industry.
Extreme Networks designs, builds, and installs Ethernet infrastructure solutions that help solve the toughest business communications challenges.
The company's focus is on enterprises and service providers who demand high performance, converged networks that support voice, video and data over a wired and wireless infrastructure.
