September 10, 2009 – (HOSTSEARCH.COM) – Inspired by the popular government program for automobiles, Chicago based server provider SingleHop
today announced their own Cash for Server Clunkers program with cash back benefits of up to $300 for businesses who trade in their older servers for more energy efficient SingleHop servers.
SingleHop’s program will allow new customers to upgrade to newer, faster and power-saving dedicated server machines, while receiving both cash back and marketing vouchers. The promotion requires proof, in the way of a receipt, that their energy-wasting old machine was, indeed, canceled.
To encourage the positive environmental effects of the program, SingleHop has arranged for customers who trade up from especially old machines, to receive higher amounts of cash benefits. “The larger the Energy Usage Gap, the larger the Cash Back Bonus,” noted Dan Ushman, VP of Sales for SingleHop. Dan Salcedo, VP of Communications for SingleHop, mentioned that “SingleHop has always been focused on providing fast, efficient and power-saving servers, even spearheading the introduction of Intel’s ultra-efficient ATOM processors for use in dedicated servers – the outcome included higher performance and 70% energy savings vs. other processors of similar speed.
In the end, SingleHop’s Cash for Server Clunkers program cements our environmental focus and, we are confident, will encourage more economic activity than would have otherwise occurred without this privately-funded incentive.”
