SOMERSET, NJ and SINGAPORE (January 5, 2015)—Raritan, a leading provider of data center infrastructure management (DCIM) and rack power distribution solutions, is positioned prominently in the “Major Players” category in a new study conducted by IDC on the DCIM market in Asia Pacific. The report also portrays Raritan with one of the largest DCIM market footprints in the region.
The study—“IDC MarketScape: Asia/Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ) Datacenter Infrastructure Management Solution 2014 Vendor Assessment”—is designed to help IT buyers compare vendors’ current capabilities and strategies relative to one another and to the factors that IDC believes will be most conducive to future success in the DCIM market.
According to the IDC report, “Raritan has defined itself in the DCIM market by providing an open, robust solution for midsize enterprise data centers. It has a strong focus on APEJ and has aligned its organizational structure well to support growth in the region. Its ability to keep the cost of the solution relatively low and deliver the solution efficiently has helped the company drive higher adoption of its DCIM solution compared with other vendors in the market. Raritan commits a large portion of its revenue to R&D and has a solid financial backing to sustain itself in the DCIM market. It has established a number of partnerships within the DCIM ecosystem to enable its users to gain the full benefits of its DCIM solution.”
DCIM solutions help organizations manage the growing complexity within their data centers and cope with the increasing pressure to be more agile in provisioning IT, says IDC. A good DCIM solution should equip the data center owner with the right tools and data to ensure every resource is tracked and efficiently managed.
“We are delighted that Raritan is featured prominently in IDC’s new report,” said Rex Sun, VP of Sales - Raritan Asia Pacific. “Raritan’s DCIM Business has a large global presence. In Asia Pacific, we’re seeing wide market adoption of DCIM both by companies with headquarters here and by U.S.-based multinational corporations with a strong presence in the region. Raritan’s DCIM Monitoring and Operations solution is increasingly being adopted by data centers because it provides accurate visibility into resources so that organizations can proactively manage space, power and cooling capacities.”
