Data Centre Hardware Analysis
Delivering Low Carbon, Sustainable Data Centre Hardware Analysis using our INTERACT tool
is a unique software platform using algorithms to generate vendor neutral, optimum IT hardware refresh and/or upgrade recommendations with pricing fed by real time product data from across the server market.
helps data centres
Increase energy efficiency
Decrease hardware procurement costs
Reduce the environmental impact of IT hardware & implement circular economy principles
How InteractHelps Your Business
INTERACT enables businesses to analyse energy consumption within the IT server estate and recommend optimum hardware solutions to reduce the number of servers, save energy and carbon, and increase return on investment
Authorised users of each account have access to their unique encrypted portal
Energy modelling and cost analysis are based on scientific equations, peer-reviewed and published in an IEEE paper
The tool has an intuitive interface that allows users to easily manage their configuration and get instant recommendations
Interact is a standalone web tool that automatically models your infrastructure based on your configuration, without the need for hardware or software installations within your data centre
Lift & Shift
Interact enables organisations to accurately reduce the number of servers through migration without compromising on performance. This saves rack space, reduces costs, energy and CO2 emissions without lowering workload capacity
Rack Level Consolidation
Interact can identify the worst performing servers, then advise how many and what models are needed to run the same workload. This eliminates wasted space, saves resources, reduces on cost and carbon footprint
5 Year Strategy
Interact provides a snapshot of server efficiency across the entire server estate and provides a report of the age & efficiency of each server model. This report is then used to rank the hardware from lowest to highest performing in terms of workload efficiency and energy draw. From this, decisions can be made about which servers to replace with which models, and when the next report should be run
