Autonomic Software and Manitoba Hydro Enter Partnership for Power Savings

Major "Green" Canadian Utility Offers Rebate for Installation of Award-Winning Power Manager Technology

DANVILLE, CA--(Marketwire - January 12, 2011) - Autonomic Software, Inc., a provider of the most advanced enterprise IT power management solutions on the market, announced today that their award-winning Power Manager product is fully certified under the Manitoba Hydro "Power Smart" Network Energy Management Program. Under the program, Manitoba Hydro is offering 100% reimbursement to businesses that purchase and install Autonomic's Power Manager.

One of the largest energy utilities in Canada, Manitoba Hydro is the province's major energy utility and exports electricity to more than 30 electric utilities in Canada and the midwestern United States. The great majority of the electricity generated by Manitoba Hydro is from renewable sources, including 4 hydroelectric generating stations on the Winnipeg, Saskatchewan and Nelson rivers.

"We've been very impressed with Manitoba Hydro's operation -- from hydro to geothermal to wind power -- and with their forward-thinking incentive programs," said Tony Gigliotti, CEO and president of Autonomic Software. "We are happy to provide Autonomic's Power Manager to their 'Power Smart' Network Energy Management Program and help Manitoba businesses save millions in IT energy costs."

"We continue to look for new and innovative ways to not only provide our customers with more power from renewable sources, but to help them lower their overall energy costs as well," said Cheryl Elnor, director of Manitoba Hydro's Power Smart program. "We're very enthusiastic about adding Autonomic Software's Power Manager to the Power Smart program because it will allow organizations of every size to participate in the incentive program, and will help them significantly reduce their overall IT power expenditures."

ANSA Power Management delivers policy-driven control over the energy settings of desktop and laptop computers. California's biggest utility, Pacific Gas & Electric, estimates that Power Manager will save more than US$60,000 per year for a typical 1,000-desktop enterprise.
