PTS Data Center Solutions, Inc and Verari Systems Partner to Provide Services for the FOREST Container Data Center
Combination of portable data
center and turnkey services addresses consolidation needs with
minimum disruption to business
Franklin Lakes, New Jersey, October 30, 2008 - PTS Data Center Solutions, Inc, a premier data
center design firm and turnkey solutions provider, today announced a partnership with Verari
Systems, a developer of independent blade-based computing and storage platforms for the data
center, in which PTS will provide design and construction services for Verari's FOREST Container
data center consolidation solution. The combination of PTS' extensive, data center, project
expertise, with Verari's modular, portable data center that is deployable virtually anywhere,
provides organizations with a complete and secure "ready to go" alternative to traditional
brick-and-mortar data centers.
As an industry leader in planning, designing, engineering, constructing, monitoring, and maintaining
data centers that integrate, 'best-of-breed' critical infrastructure technologies, PTS is uniquely
qualified to help IT managers throughout the implementation of a FOREST Container. PTS can assist in
deploying FOREST on a tight schedule while controlling costs and avoiding unforeseen problems. The
proven PTS methodology is designed to minimize the disruption of a business operating in a dynamic
landscape that is changing at breakneck speeds.
"PTS is committed to excellence in providing services for the Verari FOREST
Container," said Michael Petrino, vice president, PTS Data Center Solutions. "Unlike the traditional
bid-build process which costs more, takes more time to execute, and requires more resources to manage,
the Verari/PTS FOREST Container construction strategy condenses the exercise
into a clear and concise process."
The FOREST container houses over 2000 blade-based, compute servers or nearly 12 petabytes of blade-based storage by utilizing Verari's BladeRack® 2 X-Series platforms in a modular unit.
Furthermore, energy spending is dramatically reduced using the Verari FOREST Container's ultra efficient
power subsystems and patented Vertical Cooling Technology™, boosting reliability, performance, and
"The FOREST container is a viable option and negates the need to purchase or lease
expensive land or to build custom facilities with special requirements to support traditional data centers,"
said Dan Gatti, vice president of worldwide market operations, Verari Systems.
"Our partnership with PTS goes one step further by providing all the support
services needed to quickly install and deploy FOREST in a turnkey package."
The FOREST Container was recently named as a finalist in the
"Clean Technology Category"
of the 15th Annual AeA San Diego Council's High Tech Awards. Verari's membership in The Green Grid, Climate
Savers Computing Initiative and Silicon Valley Leadership Group are also indicators of the company's
dedication to protecting the environment by developing data center solutions engineered for maximum
power efficiency, availability, cooling and density.
