FOLSOM, Calif. --(Business Wire)--

Rackwise, Inc. (OTC: RACK) (the "Company"), a leading developer of data center infrastructure management ("DCIM") software and service solutions, today announced that the City of Seattle's Department of Information Technology (the "City" or "DoIT") has selected the Company's Rackwise® DCiM X solution to manage information technology ("IT") assets and infrastructure across all departments and agencies serving the City.

The City of Seattle's progressive approach to expanding and integrating technology into daily operations of its government and management processes resulted in the City earlier this year initiating a search and selection process for a solution to best meet current DCIM requirements as well as future IT objectives set forth by the DoIT. After an extensive evaluation of available options, the City selected Rackwise® DCiM X™.

Mr. Guy A. Archbold, Rackwise, Inc. Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Seattle is one of our nation's lading technology centers and we are particularly pleased and proud that the City's Department of Information Technology selected our Rackwise® DCiM X™ solution as an integral component of its current and prospective DCIM and information technology management strategies to maximize IT operational effectiveness across the City's vast number of departments and agencies. With information technology evolving as a central and critical operating metric for our major cities and other local public entities in delivering a variety of services to their citizens, it is extremely gratifying that among alternatives currently available, the City of Seattle designated Rackwise as their DCIM solution provider of choice to optimize its IT operations and costs by continually enabling efficiencies, assuring the highest levels of reliability and discovering hidden capacity within the City's IT infrastructure and computing environments."
