PTS Plays Role in Conservation by Building New Data Center for the World Wildlife Fund

Press Release

Franklin Lakes, New Jersey, January 30, 2013 — PTS Data Center Solutions (“PTS”) was requisitioned by the world’s leading conservation organization to assess its data center environment problem.

The World Wildlife Fund (“WWF”) was in need of a more energy efficient data center with high availability and lower operating costs.
