Green Invention Wins "IP-to-market" Competition
October 20, 2008

Software that will save data centers millions of dollars in energy costs has won the Southeastern Universities Research Association (SURA) first annual Intellectual Property to Market (IP2M) competition. The patent-pending invention, dubbed EcoDaemon by the researchers at Virginia Tech who created it, ranked number one among submissions from more than 60 research institutes in the southeast.

EcoDaemon, co-invented by Wu Feng, associate professor of computer science in the College of Engineering at Virginia Tech, and his Ph.D. student, Song Huang, can automatically save substantial energy while programs run on computers. Beyond the energy savings, the solution improves the reliability and useful life of a computer in the data center by reducing the core temperature, thus providing an opportunity to significantly lower the cost and environmental impact of data centers and many other computing devices,

With the guidance of VT KnowledgeWorks business acceleration center in the Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center, EnergyWare is finalizing a license agreement with Virginia Tech Intellectual Properties (VTIP) Inc. for the EcoDaemon technology.
