Improve Data Center Capacity Utilization (Session P06)
Khaled Nassoura, General Manager of the Green Data Center Initiative, Raritan
Learn how to manage data center capacity and assets, and improve people efficiency and data center utilization with dcTrack® software. Understand how intelligent capacity search extends the life of existing facilities by revealing valuable stranded power, space and network capacity. Unlike spreadsheets and Visio diagrams, dcTrack’s advanced visualization capability and point-and-click operation provide users with accurate information on assets, complete power chain and end-to-end network connections when they need it.

Carbon Footprint: Should a Data Center Manager Care? (Session F10)
Herman Chan, Director of Power Business Unit, Raritan.
kWh is key to knowing the real cost of power usage and carbon footprint. Energy cost is based on kWh charges, and carbon footprint is based on kWh carbon factors—and both depend on the type of power generation. This session will present approaches to monitoring power consumption and practical, tactical methods to reduce kWh consumption.
Raritan also will be showing its DCIM (Data Center Infrastructure Management) solution portfolio at the Data Center World Expo in booth # 1010. Among the products that will be shown is the just-introduced intelligent Asset Tag and Sensor solution that automates IT asset tracking to better manage data center server adds, moves and changes, and our dcTrack solution for intelligent capacity, change and accurate asset management.
