BICSI (Building Industry Consulting Service International Inc.) is a professional association supporting the information transport systems (ITS) industry. ITS covers the spectrum of voice, data, electronic safety and security, and audio / video technologies. It encompasses the design, integration and installation of pathways, spaces, fiber- and copper-based distribution systems, wireless-based systems and infrastructure that supports the transportation of information and associated signaling between and among communications and information gathering devices. BICSI provides information, education and knowledge assessment for individuals and companies in the ITS industry including designers, installers and technicians. Through courses, conferences, publications and professional registration programs, BICSI staff and volunteers assist ITS professionals in delivering critical products and services, and offer opportunities for continual improvement and enhanced professional stature.
Started by Google and Intel in 2007, the Climate Savers Computing Initiative is a nonprofit group of eco-conscious consumers, businesses and conservation organizations. The Initiative was started in the spirit of WWF’s Climate Savers program which has mobilized over a dozen companies since 1999 to cut carbon dioxide emissions, demonstrating that reducing emissions is good business. Its goal is to promote development, deployment and adoption of smart technologies that can both improve the efficiency of a computer’s power delivery and reduce the energy consumed when the computer is in an inactive state. Raritan participates as a member of Climate Savers Computing Initiative. Member companies commit to purchasing energy-efficient PCs and servers for new IT purchases, and to broadly deploying power management.
Energy efficiency is the smart way to save money and help the environment. By using less energy you lower your monthly bill, produce fewer air pollutants, preserve natural resources, and promote the use of domestic energy sources.Raritan partnered with Con Edison’s Green Team to offer a variety of energy efficiency programs, from providing free energy surveys and improvements to offering programs that pay you to use less energy, we’ll help make your business as efficient and economical as possible.
The Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF) enables more effective management of millions of IT systems worldwide by bringing the IT industry together to collaborate on the development, validation and promotion of systems management standards. The group spans the industry with 160 member companies and organizations, and more than 4,000 active participants crossing 43 countries. Raritan participates as a DMTF Leadership Member with active participation at the working groups to support development of management standards critical to enabling management interoperability among multi-vendor systems, tools and solutions within the enterprise. For more details on Raritan’s participation on key standards like CIM, WS-Management, SMASH, DASH, and OpenRMSP, visit the DMTF Marketplace.
The Green Grid is a global consortium dedicated to developing and promoting energy efficiency for data centers and information service delivery by defining and promoting the adoption of energy efficient standards, metrics, processes, measurement methods and technologies. The Green Grid is working closely with end-users, technology providers and governments around the world to create standards for more efficient use of energy in data centers. Raritan participates as a member; evaluating, adopting, and promoting new energy efficiency standards and metrics and leading the way to instrumentation of both rack and server level power consumption and rack thermal environment to help customers attain the highest level of Power Usage Effectiveness in the data center, or PUE level 3. We achieve this through the combined solution Dominion PX Intelligent rack power distribution units and Power IQ Data Center Energy Management software.
The New Jersey Technology Council provides business support, networking opportunities, information, advocacy and recognition of technology companies and their leaders. Founded in 1996, NJTC's more than 1,200 member companies work together to support their own enterprises while advancing New Jersey's status as a leading technology center in the United States.
Few business-related organizations carry the prominence or the sway of the Silicon Valley Leadership Group (SVLG). Founded in 1977 by David Packard, SVLG has grown to become the largest organization of its kind in Silicon Valley. Today SVLG has more than 300 member companies. Economically, SVLG has become a cornerstone of the Valley; collectively, its members contribute more than $1 trillion to the global economy, an amount equal to the gross national product of Italy.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) works with interested parties to identify ways in which energy efficiency can be measured, documented, and implemented in data centers and the equipment they house, especially servers. To assist data center operators in capturing the financial and environmental benefits of improved energy efficiency in their facilities, EPA is developing an ENERGY STAR rating for data center infrastructure. Raritan participated in this program by submitting results from its data center data collection activities, which presented Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) ranges between 1.59 and 1.68.
The Uptime Institute provides education, publications, consulting, certifications, conferences and seminars, independent research, and thought leadership for the enterprise data center industry and for data center professionals. The Institute’s annual international Symposium on Green Enterprise IT, now in its fourth year, presents the latest research findings of the Institute and of the uninterruptible uptime industry. Raritan participates as an underwriter at Symposium events providing white papers, speaking, and exhibiting its latest data center energy management solutions.
