AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - Jun 18, 2012) - Active Power (NASDAQ: ACPW), manufacturer of continuous power and infrastructure solutions, will deploy its high efficiency CleanSource UPS (uninterruptible power supply) system at one of the largest collocation data center facilities in China later this year.

The new, state-of-the-art modular data center is owned by a Beijing based IT services provider and located in eastern China. The 1000 kVA UPS system shipped in May 2012 and will be installed later this year. Once deployed, the UPS will provide full power conditioning and protection to the facility's mission critical server loads against all types of power disturbances.

"This project in China reflects the government's continued investment in the cloud computing market," said Martin Olsen, vice president, Global Sales, at Active Power. "With leading energy and space efficiencies and high reliability, CleanSource UPS is uniquely positioned to leverage this ongoing trend and enable organizations in China to achieve these forward thinking, highly efficient cloud computing infrastructure designs."

China is anticipated to invest more than $300 billion into the country's IT market over the next five years with a significant portion dedicated to its cloud computing sector, according to IDC. In fact, the cloud computing market is anticipated to increase 30 percent in 2012.1
