CEO and founder of 42U / DirectNET, a 16-year-old business of data center consultants focused on increasing client profitability by utilizing real-time measurement, PUE and a refinement model along with trusted independent advice on data center power and data center cooling best practices to reduce data center energy consumption. I began my career as an engineer and have 25 years of experience in the computer networking industry including senior executive positions at Siemens, Nixdorf Computers, and Glasgal Communications.
I am passionate about the environment and committed to making a difference. “Green Data Centers” help organizations improve their efficiency, which aids society on many levels. As organizations improve their efficiency, they reduce their carbon footprint along with their CapEx and OpEx costs. Less costs translates into their ability to be more competitive, hire additional resources, and do more for the common good. Together, we can promote a message of social responsibility and environmental stewardship.
I also founded a couple of ecommerce companies to meet the needs of customers who prefer a secure online source for their specialized needs. These B2B sites offer KVM Switch, Rackmount Monitors, Server Racks and Rack Mount Accessories.
