Eco4Cloud announces its role in the Advisory Board of the European Commission 'RenewIT' Project
Eco4Cloud, global leader in virtualization maximization and datacenter optimization, proudly announced its involvement in the Advisory Board of RenewIT, a European Commission research project focused on renewable energy and energy efficiency in the Data Centers. The Advisory Board includes experts from the commercial data center industry as well as leading scientific researchers, including Schneider Electric, the US National Renewable Energy Laboratory and the University of Leeds.

RenewIT will contribute to new and established metrics, data center management, and the wider policy implications of renewables in data centers. Along with the other members of the Advisory Board, Eco4Cloud will provide feedback on technical developments and will also act as ambassador for the project, playing a critical role in ensuring that RenewIT retains an outward-looking approach that meets the needs of industry and research, vendors and end-users -such as data center operators- while continuing to advance the state-of-the-art.

"The appointment to the Advisory Board of the RenewIT Project is both a honor and a responsibility, as well as a testament of Eco4Cloud's thought leadership in the area of Data Center optimization. Scientific innovation applied to compelling industry needs is foundational for both Eco4Cloud and RenewIT, and I trust this strategic collaboration will drive great benefits for the entire data center ecosystem in Europe and globally," said Roberto Mircoli, CEO of Eco4Cloud.

"Although only just established, the RenewIT Advisory Board is already delivering value by creating close links with industry and research institutions. Many board members either own or operate data centers, or deliver data center software, technology and services. We want to ensure the project results in innovative research but is also of real value to the data center industry," said Dr. Jaume Salom of IREC and RenewIT project co-ordinator.
