Power Assure EM/4 Earns Stellar Score in Environmental Leader Technology Reviews

Power Assure EM/4 Earns Stellar Score in Environmental Leader Technology Reviews 
SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/06/13 --  Power Assure(R),
Inc., a data center infrastructure and energy management solutions
provider, today announced that its secure, cloud-based EM/4(TM)
energy management platform providing integrated monitoring, analysis
and automation of data center information and processes, received a
stellar score in the Environmental Leader Technology Reviews Program.
Power Assure EM/4 earned an impressive 4 Stars (out of a possible
five), and is considered by judges as an exemplary product. 
One judge said of EM/4, "Load management and demand response is the
next frontier for optimizing energy productivity in any sector and
data centers represent a major energy efficiency challenge. EM/4
offers a customized platform for addressing the energy management
issues that are unique to the data center community." 
Another added, "Power Assure EM/4 is a solid product for companies
running multiple data centers. I like that it collects data from
other systems such as BMS and PMS and will analyze what is happening
in real time to allow the data center managers to make immediate
decisions that may affect the data center reliability. I also like
that the EM/4 software will allow for automatic shifting of computing
from one data center to another. This is particularly beneficial in
increasing reliability, helping to minimize the impact of peak time
electricity charges if the data centers are regionally diverse, and
also allowing the company to possibly benefit financially from
contracts with local utilities to reduce power in constrained
electricity availability situations. The added benefit of making this
system with separate modules that the company can buy based on their
needs and add as the need arises is great." 
"We are honored to have received such high scores in the
Environmental Leader Technology Reviews Program for our product
excellence with features and performance that provide clear and
substantial benefits," said Pete Malcolm, president and CEO, Power
Assure, Inc. "With Power Assure, data center managers can now
collect, synthesize and analyze the overwhelming amount of raw data
available from facilities and IT equipment and turn it into useful
ness information for making decisions in real time about
improving the efficiency, capacity and performance of their data
