SAN RAFAEL, Calif., March 1, 2016 – Canara, the trusted leader in critical power analytics and facility management services, today announced customer Cyber Wurx has improved its power usage efficiency (PUE) by 30 percent after implementing Canara Insight for Branch Circuits.
Cyber Wurx is a privately held company providing customers, ranging from small entrepreneurs to enterprise organizations, with premium colocation services in Atlanta. To better understand the power infrastructure of its 20,000-square-foot colocation facility, Cyber Wurx engaged Canara in April of 2014. In 24 months time, Cyber Wurx is already experiencing meaningful return on investment.
Canara Insight for Branch Circuits has given us visibility into our data center environment at a more granular level, empowering my team to proactively manage operations and prevent overload conditions,” said Chris Schwarz, CEO of Cyber Wurx. “Canara’s weekly BCM reports have served as our guide to identify stranded power and helped us optimize loads - ultimately improving our PUE and our bottom line.”
Canara Insight for Branch Circuits clearly and accurately delivers the information needed to make critical decisions with drill-down access to data. Canara’s monitoring and reporting services provide facility managers with intelligent analysis of circuit-level electrical usage, enabling load-based cost allocation, and improving capacity planning.
“The Department of Energy’s Better Buildings initiative recently challenged facilities to improve energy efficiency by 20 percent by 2020,” said Tom Mertz, CEO of Canara. “We are pleased to announce that we helped Cyber Wurx surpass this amount over the last 12 months.”
In addition to Canara’s monitoring and reporting services, Cyber Wurx deployed Canara Branch Circuit Monitoring (BCM) Pro hardware throughout its facility and just recently purchased additional panels. The most affordable solution on the market, Canara BCM Pro, measures power voltage to accurately calculate apparent power and real power, calculate energy for each branch circuit, and allocate aggregated usage to circuit owners.
