Computerworld Names Dell a Top Green-IT Vendor

It’s another green week at Dell! Our teams are thrilled to celebrate our inclusion on Computerworld’s Top 12 Green-IT Vendors for 2010.

In its third year, the Computerworld Top Green-IT Organizations identify organizations that are implementing smart, efficient strategies to achieve green IT. Computerworld applied a set of criteria, developed with the help of green-IT industry experts, to identify organizations working to reduce energy consumption in IT equipment and using technology to conserve energy and lower carbon emissions. You can check out the full list of top green IT vendors and users here.

As part of this survey, Network World also asked respondents to identify their most useful and effective green-IT products. We are excited to report that “People’s Picks” went to Dell PowerEdge servers for energy-efficient server hardware and to Dell Professional P2311H for flat-screen monitors. This recognition means the world to us, as it comes directly from customers computing more and consuming less with our products.

So why did Dell garner inclusion on the Computerworld list of Top Green-IT vendors? These videos help tell the story from our and our customers’ perspectives, respectively:

  • Dell CIO, Robin Johnson, explains how our Efficient Enterprise Model saves energy through server utilization.
  • Dell partner Southern Company explains how Dell has helped them reduce their own environmental impact.

I’d also like to extend a huge CONGRATS to Dell customer Earth Rangers whose virtualized data center led them to the No. 4 spot on the Computerworld list of Top Green-IT Users. Among other achievements, their green IT planning has eliminated 90 percent of the hardware and nearly 85 percent of the energy costs that a conventional server deployment would require. Great use of green IT!

We couldn’t be more proud of the role our products and services play in helping our customers do and achieve more in an environmentally responsible way.

As always, let us know how we can continue improving our green offerings and make “being green” easy and cost-effective for our customers. Thoughts?
