7 © 2009 APC by Schneider Electric Core | Business Overview | Rev 0 How we work with you Consultatative We work with customers directly in early project phases to develop data center solution concepts and specifications, based on IT requirements Solutions are typically based on standardized modular designs Small or large projects; new or retrofit Bid-spec supplier Customers engage architects and engineers Our channel partners bid on component or subsystem specifications that are integrated by third parties We provide best-in-class equipment as specified Solutions tend to be unique, complex, and time-consuming More like buying a car More like building a house Standardized, configurable Complex, unique We value both types of relationship and work to make our customers successful in either case

8 © 2009 APC by Schneider Electric Core | Business Overview | Rev 0 Why has Schneider made the data center a high priority? Existing customers have identified the data center as a priority requiring help and improvement We are uniquely positioned to solve data center problems We have more customers to learn from than any other infrastructure provider We have worked 15 years to develop the science of data centers and have the technology and skills to solve the customer problems We already offer nearly all the different parts used in the data center and are therefore in an ideal position to integrate them in ways to add maximum value

9 © 2009 APC by Schneider Electric Core | Business Overview | Rev 0 number one challenge What is the number one challenge your data center faces today? A: Q: 2008 IDC study Power and cooling 21.8% Customers are asking for help – we must respond

10 © 2009 APC by Schneider Electric Core | Business Overview | Rev 0 Data center planning and operation is under increasing pressures Energy and service cost control pressure Increasing availability expectations Regulatory requirements Server consolidation Server consolidation Rapid changes in IT technology High density blade server power/heat Dynamic power variation Uncertain long-term plans for capacity or density In response, we are working to change the way the world designs, installs, operates, manages, and maintains data centers

11 © 2009 APC by Schneider Electric Core | Business Overview | Rev 0 What actions is Schneider taking in the data center market? Consolidation of complimentary market suppliers to add to the existing Schneider power and automation portfolio to develop more complete and integrated solutions; examples include: APC MGE Square D Pelco (video surveillance) TAC Power Measurement Inc.
