AdaptivCool to Present at Technology Convergence Conference

Presentation Will Show IT and Facilities Managers How to Cost-Effectively Reduce Data Center Energy Consumption and Increase Overall Computing Capacity

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - February 17, 2009) - Degree Controls, Inc. (DegreeC), a leading global provider of thermal management and cooling efficiency technologies for the data center, today announced that representatives from its AdaptivCool division will give a presentation on data center energy and computing capacity at TELADATA's Technology Convergence Conference on February 19, 2009 at the Santa Clara Convention Center.

AdaptivCool's presentation will begin at 2:30 PM.

Wally Phelps, AdaptivCool's Product Marketing Manager and "Airflow Evangelist," will lead a presentation using a case study from a disaster recovery site. Joining Wally Phelps will be Dan Wilson, President of Wilson International Networking and former IT Manager for Osram Sylvania.

During the forty-five-minute interactive presentation, attendees will learn how to ensure Thermal Peace of Mind™ in their data centers.

Topics to be covered include:

--  Hot Aisle/Cold Aisle -- What you still don't know
--  Achieving additional computing capacity without adding Computer Room
    Air Conditioning Units (CRACS)
--  Using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Analysis as a planning tool
--  How to cut cooling-related utility bills by up to thirty percent

"We are delighted to be presenting at TELADATA's leading technology conference. Given the state of the economy and the way IT budgets are being slashed, we look forward to showing participants how to cost-effectively reduce their data center energy consumption and increase overall computing capacity without any major capital expenditures," said Wally Phelps, Product Marketing Manager, AdaptivCool.

"As someone who used to be responsible for two data centers, I know what it's like to run into a capacity problem and not have the budget approval to significantly expand. At the disaster recovery site I was in charge of, we were able to add capacity without a major expenditure. I look forward to sharing this experience with attendees," said Dan Wilson, President, Wilson International Networking.
