LAS VEGAS, NV (December 1, 2014)— Raritan, a leading provider of data center infrastructure management (DCIM) and rack power distribution solutions, today unveiled a new DCIM software release that provides monitoring of white space and critical facilities systems. The release also features new capabilities to facilitate data center audits and moves. The announcement was made at the Gartner Data Center, Infrastructure & Operations Management Conference.
Raritan provides a complete solution to support customers moving from spreadsheets and other static forms and processes residing in multiple silos to an integrated, automated DCIM solution that provides accurate and interactive views on data center operations and resources. Capture information from the physical data center and create visual representations of data center elements and their interconnectivity, with Raritan’s enhanced DCIM solution. The following are some of the new capabilities released:
• Expanded data center health maps that monitor critical facilities systems such as CRACs, UPSs and RPPs. The solution enables data center professionals to spot incidents before they become problems.
• Rack Failover Analysis Reports that help prevent a single power chain failure from causing downtime.
• Cabinet, Asset and Item Detail Reports to quickly perform audits.
• Cabinet move feature to simplify and quickly move or expand data centers.
The Raritan DCIM solution also provides easy-to-use import wizards, auto-discovery features and the industry’s largest models library—all to help customers deploy faster.
