The alliance of Aperture’s VISTA software and ESD’s operational planning expertise narrows the gap between technical and operational knowledge.

London, UK – May 21, 2007 - Aperture Technologies Inc., the leading global provider of software for managing the physical infrastructure of data centres, has announced a formal partnership with engineering and consulting specialist Environmental Systems Design Inc. (ESD Inc.).

Under the partnership, ESD will apply the technical engineering data encapsulated in Aperture’s VISTA Symbol Repository to assist in its consulting projects.

ESD provides engineering design solutions, worldwide, to data centres and other projects. The company has more than 200 engineering and design professionals which support a diverse range of clients in markets including commercial, health and science, education, assembly, energy plants and transportation.

“Aperture VISTA provides unparalleled visibility and management of data centre elements and infrastructure,” said Paul Schlattman, Technical Program Consultant for ESD. “This comprehensive database of over 30,000 data centre objects, from power rails to racks, compliments our proven track record in operational planning and design. By bringing the knowledge and level of detail in Aperture VISTA together with our consulting capabilities, we will be able to grow our engineering services. We’re extremely excited about this business partnership, and look forward to working closely with the Aperture team.”

Bill Clifford, CEO of Aperture Technologies, said, “ESD has a highly-regarded reputation for engineering consultancy and data centre design. The team has a vast experience and resources which allow it to stay ahead in this competitive and exciting market: drawing on the technical knowledge that makes Aperture VISTA the market leader will strengthen both companies’ foothold in the market.”
