Organic Valley shares how they cut their physical footprint by more than half, leading to reduced power usage, and substantial savings in cooling requirements.

“The IT department has greatly contributed to reducing power consumption with new, more efficient, virtualizable machines and with the centralization of services in the public cloud in order to use only the resources that are needed, which translates into efficiency and reduced carbon emissions"

- Francisco Javier Mollá, I&O Global Manager of Service Delivery for EMEA at Holcim Group

“Our legacy environment filled four racks, and we’re now down to less than half a rack of equipment with Nutanix.. By moving to Nutanix, we were able to cut our co-lo costs by 75% for power, cooling, and space.”


- Dane Sandersen, global security and infrastructure director at Trek.

"Our previous three-tier system consisted of about ten racks of compute equipment, and we have been able to reduce that to a quarter rack. Our power expenses have come down about 70%, which is working out to tens of thousands of dollars—and 24,000 kg of CO2 emissions—saved per year.”

- Simon Sowerby, Technical Services Coordinator, City of Unley
