Premier Annual Award Recognizes the “Hottest Startups” Worldwide
Oakland, CA. (May 20, 2015) Vigilent®, the leader in dynamic cooling management® systems for mission critical facilities, today announced it was named a TiE50 Top Startup winner at TiEcon 2015, the world’s largest conference for entrepreneurs. The annual award recognizes companies demonstrating market leadership, innovation with demonstrable business results and unique intellectual property, and selects only 50 winners from more than 2700 companies.
“This is our fourth consecutive win of this prestigious award,” said Vigilent CEO Dave Hudson. “We are honored that technology visionaries and the investment community continue to recognize Vigilent for its innovation in data center reliability, capacity optimization and energy efficiency.”
Vigilent recently introduced predictive analytics that dramatically improve visibility and operational planning related to cooling management in mission critical facilities. Leveraging the rich data captured in hundreds of deployments, the Vigilent analytics generate sophisticated predictive models and what-if tools that enable facility managers to make data-driven decisions regarding where cooling capacity exists, where there is adequate cooling redundancy, where IT equipment can safely be placed, and where opportunities exist for additional energy savings.
The system optimizes thermal conditions and reduces energy consumption in data centers and telecom facilities by precisely and dynamically matching the amount of cooling required for the current IT load. Using predictive control driven by machine learning software, the Vigilent system continually tunes and automatically optimizes cooling in every location throughout the data center floor. Hot spots are eliminated and cooling energy consumption is immediately reduced by an average of 38% in virtually any type of environment following a quick deployment.
