Since starting operations in 1999, this unique organization Earth Ranger will increase its reach to nearly 350,000 children in 2009, and expects to have an active young community of over one million in North America by 2015. The organization wanted a high performance data centre that offers energy efficiency without sacrificing scalability, and which also supported the overall organizational strategy of being net zero energy. For this the organization deployed VMware. Earth Rangers achieved a 90% reduction in potential power usage, equivalent to over 100 metric tones of carbon dioxide emissions annually, because VMware enabled a 20:1 server consolidation ratio, which also reduced hardware, saved space and reduced overall costs.
