Modius Announces New, Low-Cost Essentials Offerings at Gartner Data Center Conference

New 'Starter Kit' Packages Help Data Center Operators Optimize Energy Efficiency, Power Management, and Environmental Monitoring

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - December 1, 2009) - Modius Inc., a leading provider of availability and performance monitoring software for data center management, today introduced a new line of pre-packaged energy and environmental management offerings that allow IT and facilities managers to dramatically increase the real-time visibility into their operations without the traditional complexity and lengthy deployment times. The initial members of the 'Essentials' family of products are based upon the proven Modius OpenData® platform and consist of pre-packaged offerings in Power Efficiency, Power-Chain Management, and Environmental Monitoring, which are three of the most common IT infrastructure management problems facing today's infrastructure managers.

"Modius has always been dedicated to the delivery of highly scalable monitoring and visualization solutions for the IT industry," stated Craig Compiano, Modius' CEO and Founder. "We have created a data collection architecture unequalled in the industry, and have profiled hundreds of the most common devices seen in facilities. New customers are coming to Modius everyday asking us to apply our OpenData technology and Modius' infrastructure knowledge to their own unique infrastructure. Within days, not weeks or months, Modius delivers tangible value to our customers."

Many analysts predict that the importance of pro-active physical resource infrastructure management is now a major opportunity and the market will grow to nearly $10B over the next 10 years. To meet this primary infrastructure management goal, Modius has spent years architecting and developing the Modius OpenData® System, a vendor-neutral robust distributed collection framework specific to facility and IT infrastructures. Modius OpenData has been deployed by large and small companies alike and provides the industry's first real-time monitoring solution for any number of industry benchmarks and KPIs including the very popular "PUE" and "DCiE" metrics. Modius OpenData is the industry's most scalable monitoring solution available today allowing an unlimited number of devices from any number of vendors to be monitored, normalized, analyzed, and visualized in real-time.

The turnkey, out-of-the-box Modius Essentials offerings are available now with prices starting at $10,000 including term license and installation services. The three offerings are:

--  Modius Essentials for Power Efficiency -- allowing clear understanding
    of power-usage efficiency within the data center

    consumption from intelligent power distribution devices to be aggregated
    and trended
