Argonne National Laboratory Selects Rackwise® DCiM X™ To Manage Multiple Data Centers

Rackwise, Inc. (RACK.OB) (the "Company"), a leading developer of data center infrastructure management ("DCIM") software and service solutions, today announced that the Company has executed a license agreement with Argonne National Laboratory on behalf of its Computer and Information Systems Division (“Argonne”) to install and deploy Rackwise ® DCiM X™ in Argonne’s data centers located at its principal facilities in Illinois. Argonne is managed by UChicago Argonne, LLC, for the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Science.

Argonne is one of the largest national laboratories for scientific and engineering research in the United States. Among its DCIM prerequisites, Argonne stipulated the need for advanced energy data collection, monitoring, reporting, and planning capabilities to accommodate its multiple data centers, including compliance with complex energy reduction and environmental performance requirements set forth in Executive Order 13514 (“EO 13514”), Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance, promulgated under the Federal Energy Management Program. To meet the requisites of EO 13514, Argonne requires a tool to facilitate establishing an energy utilization baseline as well as enable ongoing monitoring, reporting, and planning to improve energy usage over time. After evaluating available product alternatives, Argonne selected Rackwise ® DCiM X™ as the most comprehensive offering meeting their current and projected requirements, noting that Rackwise ® products are currently deployed successfully by other U.S. national laboratories. Argonne will initially use the Rackwise ® DCiM X™ offering to establish an ongoing PUE reporting mechanism.

Mr. Rene L. Gobeyn, Data Center Facility Manager, Computer and Information Systems Division, Argonne National Laboratory, commented, “Compliance with federal regulations and executive orders presents unique challenges in energy data collection, reporting, monitoring and planning. The Rackwise ® offering provides a comprehensive solution for not only effective energy management, but features and functionalities enabling sound DCIM strategies across the entire information technology infrastructure. The fact that other national laboratories in the United States currently use Rackwise ® products to successfully address similar challenges contributed to our confidence in selecting Rackwise ® DCiM X™ for our facilities.”

Mr. Guy A. Archbold, Rackwise, Inc. Chief Executive Officer, added, “Argonne National Laboratory is globally recognized for its pursuit of innovative research in our country’s national interest, creating new knowledge that addresses the most important scientific and societal needs of our nation, including challenges in energy, the environment and national security. We are extremely proud to support one of the world’s great scientific destinations, providing IT resources critical to their research objectives. Argonne’s selection of our DCiM X™ offering further validates that Rackwise ® solutions are fast becoming the leading data center infrastructure management tools of choice for data center managers and IT professionals to efficiently and effectively plan and manage local and global networks of data centers and computing ecosystems to continually assure the highest levels of reliability, discover hidden capacity, and enable efficiencies to optimize overall IT operations and costs.”
