With ISAAC, we are committed to providing more efficiency at all levels and while ISAAC Workspace thrives on delivering productivity and effectiveness, it’s our platform underneath that is proof of our dedication to environmental sustainability.
At the most basic level, hardware virtualization enables a net reduction in the amount of physical infrastructure deployed in any IT environment. The ISAAC hypervisor software virtualizes the hardware layers, presenting a unique hardware instance (virtual machines) to every operating system instance for compute, a built-in software- defined data persistent layer for these virtual machines (using server-based storage), and a networking subsystem (for east-west and north-south networking traffic). This enables ISAAC to consolidate multiple computer operating system instances as well as their associated storage and networking layers and the workloads hosted on them on to a much smaller footprint.
Reducing the amount of physical infrastructure in use leads to an associated savings in technical room floor space and power consumed by AV system deployments. In addition, in aggregate, there is a commensurate reduction in cooling system power consumption and other ancillary technical room services that is proportional to the AV system’s overall operational efficiency.
The conclusion of a 2020 study by International Data Corporation (IDC) states:
“IDC has found that infrastructure virtualization software, the architectural foundation for cloud-era business agility, delivers a significant beneficial capex and opex impact by reducing the amount of hardware infrastructure required to support application workloads. Intensive infrastructure virtualization results in greater cost and energy savings on hardware and datacenter operations. As it turns out, however, the benefits do not end there. The reduced cumulative and incremental power consumption provided by infrastructure virtualization also results in substantially lower carbon emissions (measured in terms of CO2 emissions). This allows organizations that adopt infrastructure virtualization to achieve compelling reductions in carbon emissions on a cumulative and an incremental basis.”Read the full study
