(Carlsbad, CA Ė January 31, 2008) Leading library services and knowledge management company EOS International announced their first step in reducing corporate energy use by installing state-of-the art systems in the EOS global data center. The installation of the new VMWare and Dell SAN systems allow EOS to cut their data centerís electricity use by forty percent, while increasing the data centerís capacity.

"Installation of our new, energy-efficient servers is the first of many steps that EOS International hopes to take to become a more environmentally-responsible corporate citizen," said Tony Saadat, CEO of EOS International. "We are committed to utilizing the most innovative technology possible to help reduce our environmental impact."

"I am delighted to learn of EOS's intention to be more Ďgreen,í said Marlene Vogelsang, MLS, Resource Specialist, Pacific Energy Center. "Energy efficiency is key to reducing energy use and reducing carbon emissions. I am glad that "my" server in Carlsbad is an efficient one!

Congratulations on your efficient Global Data Center!" finished Voglesang.

The EOS Global Data Centerís initial installation of four new servers is the equivalent of forty older models. The new servers reduce costs associated with maintenance, temperature control, and additional space within the data center. Further roll-outs of this nature will take place throughout the year, once the benchmarks for operations are complete.
