SAN FRANCISCO, June 29, 2011 -

Drives Down Cost and Risk for Data Center
Design, Deployment & Management

Romonet today at the
DatacenterDynamics conference in San Francisco introduced
Prognose™, the world’s first and only predictive modeling software
suite.  Prognose enables companies that are designing,
building, operating and managing data centers and IT facilities to
fully understand how designs or changes to facilities or IT
workloads will impact their business.

Prognose offers data center operators and decision makers the
ability to understand and control costs, energy use and risk
throughout the entire data center lifecycle. The new suite of
software tools uses sophisticated mathematical simulation to
accurately model and compare performance, operational efficiency
and costs across a wide range of ‘what if’ scenarios - all without
any intrusion or impact on business operations.

“Data center operators around the world are under increasing
pressure to reduce business risk, control operational cost and
maximize capital asset utilization while at the same time facing
rising energy costs and increasing compliance regulations,” says
Zahl Limbuwala, CEO of Romonet. “Being able to accurately predict
energy consumption, total cost and reduce risk is crucial to
understanding and optimizing performance both today and in the

Two years in development, Prognose was the brainchild of leading
data center specialists Zahl Limbuwala, chief executive officer,
and Liam Newcombe, chief technical officer - both of whom are
leading industry contributors in the international harmonization of
data center metrics within the Green Grid, European Commission,
US-EPA and US-DoE working groups. They saw the need for businesses
to be able to accurately account for cost, energy, capacity and
carbon on a granular, per service level in order to understand and
optimize data center performance and efficiency.

“Rising energy costs and capacity issues, and the emergence of
cloud services, are driving the need to better understand and
manage diverse data center cost scenarios,” says Rhonda Ascierto,
Senior Analyst, Energy & Sustainability Technology at Ovum.
“Part of the challenge has been to accurately predict the cost of
IT services. We see predictive modeling tools as a significant step
forward in providing insight into reducing data center operational

Prognose has already been used by industry leading companies,
including Fujitsu, hurleypalmerflatt, Intel, Skanska, Syska
Hennessy and Thomson Reuters Market. Charles Rego, chief data
center architect at Intel commented, “Prognose could be a
game-changer as the leading TCO/Predictive modeling solution for
the data center industry.”
