MIAMI, Oct 25, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) --
Terremark Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ:TMRK), a leading global provider of managed IT infrastructure services, today announced IDG's Computerworld, the leading source of technology news and information for IT influencers worldwide, has selected it as one of the Top Green-IT Organizations for 2010. This honor is part of the IT media outlet's annual Top Green-IT Organizations feature, which was published in the October 25 issue of Computerworld and online at Computerworld.com.
For the third year in a row, Computerworld set out to identify organizations that are implementing smart, efficient strategies to achieve "green IT." Organizations were invited to complete a comprehensive questionnaire online from May to July. Computerworld then applied a set of criteria, developed with the help of green-IT industry experts, to identify the organizations that are working to reduce energy consumption in IT equipment and are using technology to conserve energy and lower carbon emissions.
"At Terremark, we continue to pursue ways to maximize energy efficiency across our global footprint of data centers so that we are able to limit our environmental impact while also reducing our own operational costs," said Manuel D. Medina, Chairman and CEO of Terremark. "We are very proud to be recognized for the second straight year for our energy-efficiency efforts, which extend from the world-class datacenters we operate to the innovative products and services we provide to our government and enterprise customers."
Terremark utilizes various energy-efficient methods across its global data center footprint to reduce its power consumption, including hot-aisle/cold-aisle air segregation, computational fluid dynamics modeling (CFD) and employing rotary uninterruptible power supply systems (UPS). Along with implementing innovative power conservation strategies in its world-class data centers, Terremark's suite of industry-leading cloud computing offerings and virtualized products provides customers with reliable, enterprise-ready solutions for their IT infrastructure needs while minimizing their environmental impact.
"Many of the organizations recognized in our third annual Top Green-IT issue have already plucked 'low-hanging fruit,' such as reducing travel with teleconferencing or buying Energy Star-rated IT equipment," said Scot Finnie, editor in chief, Computerworld. "These top organizations are truly stretching now, exploring innovative new ways to apply technology to reduce energy consumption. They know that achieving green-IT isn't a one-time effort; they're in it for the long haul."
