SAN FRANCISCO - Digital Realty Trust Inc. is implementing a next-generation building automation system (BAS) across its portfolio of properties to provide tenants with enhanced building management capabilities. TAC is overseeing the deployment of its Andover Continuumâ„¢ BAS, a best in class integrated building automation, energy management, and card access/security solution.

"No other company in the industry is utilizing a building automation system this advanced, and it expands the growing number of benefits and amenities," said Michael Foust, CEO of Digital Realty Trust.

This next-generation BAS will allow tenants in Digital Realty Trust properties to remotely monitor conditions in their data center as well as actively manage temperature, humidity, access control, lighting, equipment alarms, maintenance orders, and security. TAC's Andover Continuum BAS allows tenants to manage data center implementations across multiple properties on a single dashboard, and the system's reporting tools are customizable to deliver alarms and status reports in a number of ways to meet customer needs: via e-mail, pager, cell phone and/or via IP to workstation or Web page.

The new BAS solution will be implemented in 13 Digital Realty Trust properties this year, and the rollout will continue to the remainder of the company's 49 Internet gateways and Turn-Key Datacenter Facilities in North America and Europe. This system will also be implemented as necessary in future properties that are acquired by Digital Realty Trust, providing a unified building automation environment across all properties worldwide.
