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 availability.

"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.
