Asset Management

Posted on January 3, 2009 by Minder Singh

Knowing what you have and where it is can be easier than you think.

Raritan’s asset management solution. The most accurate way to track assets in real time.

  • What assets do I have in my operations?
  • Where are they located?
  • How are my devices configured and connected?

If you can’t answer these questions with a few clicks and keystrokes, it may be time to look into a solution that enables you to accurately track and view your assets in real time, so you can manage your data center or lab more intelligently.

Our asset management solution consists of four main elements: visualizing and tracking software (dcTrack), asset management tags (AMT), asset management sensors (AMS) and EMX, our smart rack controller.

dcTrack® is our easy-to-use DCIM software solution that lets you maintain accurate, real-time views across your entire data center, including equipment in racks like servers, storage, networking equipment, rack PDUs, patch panels and even applications. You can also see infrastructure devices like floor PDUs and branch circuit panels, UPSs and CRAC units. And more importantly, dcTrack maps physical relationships between all of these devices so you can easily see how everything in the data center is physically connected. It basically shows you the entire power and network chain at a click of a button. dcTrack is a complete, comprehensive DCIM solution that eliminates the need for partial solutions, Excel® spreadsheets and Visio® diagrams.

Working together with dcTrack to provide rack level accuracy down to the 1U level, our unique solution also contains:

  • Asset Management Tags allow you to attach unique electronic IDs to each IT device, so you can remotely track equipment locations with pinpoint accuracy.
  • Asset Management Sensors monitor your devices and provide location information and alerts if an asset is displaced.
  • EMX consolidates multiple AMT and AMS connections to send location and environmental data to our dcTrack software.

Together, these components enable you to:

  • Accurately understand what you have and where it’s located
  • Quickly make informed decisions about available capacity
  • Improve productivity of data center operators
