COLUMBUS, Ohio -- September 5, 2013

Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR) and a global leader
in maximizing availability, capacity and efficiency of critical
infrastructure, today announced the availability of two new technologies for
the Trellis™ platform. The new capabilities, Trellis™ Power System Manager and
Trellis™ Mobile Suite, provide a complete visualization of the power system
and secure, real-time mobile access to system diagnostics. This enhanced data
center infrastructure management (DCIM) functionality enables data center
managers to reduce the risk of downtime and improve operational efficiencies.

“Discussions with our closest customers on our advisory boards indicated they
needed additional flexibility and holistic insight for power management and
that they would benefit from the ability to take Trellis anywhere, 24/7,” said
Steve Hassell, president of Emerson Network Power’s Data Center Solutions
business. “These new modules take the most comprehensive DCIM solution to the
next level by giving the user greater insight for managing their assets
on-the-go or on the data center floor, allowing them to reduce downtime risks,
improve operational efficiency and cut costs.”

The Trellis Power System Manager introduces the ability to view the complete
power chain from the grid to the rack via a one-line diagram – a first for the
DCIM industry. This capability enables data center mangers to easily document
the complete power system, view capacity utilization in real-time, and
forecast energy consumption. When data center managers know exactly which
racks or devices will be affected by a power system failure or by scheduled
maintenance, they can identify and address potential issues, perform risk
assessments and better plan for power maintenance, resulting in reduced risk
of downtime and lower costs.

The Trellis Mobile Suite is an app that enables data center managers to manage
assets in real-time from anywhere by transforming a mobile device into a
portal to the Trellis platform. The ability to take action from a remote
location reduces risks to business continuity and improves staff efficiency.
Additionally, the unique and innovative image-recognition technology and
bar-code scanning capabilities enable data center managers to use the Mobile
Suite on the data center floor to find, add, move and remove racks and devices
faster; carry out audits easily; and configure the database without returning
to a computer. The app will save data center managers time with the ability to
track assets and perform system updates on-the-go. The Emerson Network Power
Trellis Mobile Suite app is available from the App Store at www.AppStore.com
and is compatible with the iPad™.

“Emerson Network Power’s Trellis platform continues to evolve by offering
increased functional capabilities that follow a comprehensive roadmap,” said
Michelle Bailey, vice president for Digital Infrastructure and Datacenter
Initiatives at 451 Research. “Adding new mobile access, image recognition,
power management and asset management capabilities positions Emerson to
address the escalating needs of the DCIM marketplace, while offering a
tangible solution for the future datacenter.”
