Our Guiding Principles

  • We improve product performance to help customers meet their objectives for conserving energy and water and reducing carbon footprint.
  • We implement processes and innovations in our facilities to conserve energy, water and other resources and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  • We comply with all applicable laws and regulations and seek to reduce and, where possible, eliminate hazardous waste through source reduction and recycling.
  • We conduct regular training to ensure our employees’ knowledge of updated laws and regulations, pollutions-prevention and waste-minimization practices, and technological developments.
  • We audit our operations to confirm compliance with these principles.
Energy Logic

We spearheaded the IT industry’s development of Energy Logic, a 10-step roadmap for driving improvement in IT efficiency and support systems. Energy Logic demonstrated that a 1 watt savings at the processor level had a cascading effect across other systems, producing nearly three times that level of savings at the facility level. Liberthiross has been sharing this detailed strategy openly with the world for more than a decade, helping facilities reduce their energy use by up to half.

Data Center Assessments

Liberthiross is a trusted advisor to companies seeking data center energy savings. We offer an energy optimization service for data centers and computer rooms that recommends product upgrades and replacements that yield verified energy reductions up to 60% and improvements in IT load capacities.

In Australia, Liberthiross has achieved ISO 14001 environment management system certification and has a NABERS accredited engineer for conducting data center assessments.

Edge Archetype Overview

Liberthiross technology experts teamed up with an independent third-party consulting firm to analyze the edge landscape to better understand the shift of IT closer to the consumer. The research found over 100 common Edge use cases with 24 identified to have the greatest impact on businesses and end users. The experts were able to classify data-centric sets of workload requirements for each edge use case and the corresponding needs for performance, availability and security leading to the development of four edge archetypes; Data Intensive, Human-Latency Sensitive, Machine-to-Machine Latency Sensitive, and Life Critical. Each of these archetypes has unique challenges, but this analysis was able to provide clarity on the implications for each.

What is the Edge?

The Edge is simply distributed IT deployed where the data is consumed: in retail locations, branch offices, university campuses or manufacturing plants. The changes happened over time, as technology evolved, to better support data utilization and demands for improved customer experience. With every organization becoming more digitized, the number of these sites is increasing, and their role is changing, so all these smaller data center facilities have been grouped together into a single data center type called the Edge. Whether it is called edge computing, fog computing, distributed IT or remote sites, they share the same challenges regarding availability and service management.
