Description Power Assure makes Software-as-a-Service that can ramp the power consumption of data centers up and down to coincide with the demand of its web company users.
GigaOM’s Take Servers and data centers should already work the way Power Assure’s software intends: use only as much power as needed at all times. But other companies are building this type of efficiency directly into hardware and software components (Google). Will Power Assure’s service be the one that delivers this valuable need?
