is a global network dedicated to fostering entrepreneurs across its

international network. Sponsored by top Venture Capital Firms and

Fortune 500 corporations, TiE's network has grown across 56 chapters

in 13 countries comprising of 1,800 experienced entrepreneurs and

business executives as charter members, 12,000 aspiring entrepreneurs

and professionals as members.

Large enterprises, government agencies and managed service providers

are struggling to deal with silos of data, constrained capacity,

inadequate power/cooling/space and the inefficient use of their

servers. They lack the visibility and tools to identify, analyze, and,

most importantly, resolve these problems and improve the overall

efficiency of their data center energy inefficiencies. Power Assure's

secure, cloud-based


solution provides actionable, real-time insight into power utilization

and other key performance indicators (KPIs) within and across data

centers, along with the means to analyze the root cause of these

problems and automate various processes to increase efficiency while

maintaining or even improving service levels.

"We are very proud to be recognized by TiE, a highly respected global

network of leading entrepreneurs, as one of the most promising young

companies of 2011," said Brad Wurtz, president and CEO, Power Assure.

"Only Power Assure arms customers with the information and tools they

need to radically improve the overall reliability and efficiency of

their data centers -- whether focusing on a single data center or

comparing performance of a network of data centers."

to "Inspire the Entrepreneur in you to Innovate, Connect and Prosper."
