Managing energy requires more than just an on/off switch. Now there’s a solution.

Know more about your energy use, so you can intelligently manage energy costs. Get the information you need with our energy management solution.

It’s not enough anymore to ensure that the mission critical servers in your data center or IT lab stay up and running. For many companies, managing the cost of energy is also critical to success. So the focus is on understanding what’s drawing the energy in your facility and finding ways to save on energy usage – while maintaining a safe environment for your IT equipment.

For that, you need information that can give you the intelligence you need to be smarter about your energy usage.

Raritan’s energy management solution offers you valuable insight to help you find savings in your data center or IT lab.

Our solution is designed to help IT and facilities managers:

  • Reduce capital expenditures and save on operating expenses
  • Generate energy cost reports for customers
  • Create a baseline and certify changes in energy and carbon footprint
  • Easily identify active power, energy, cost and environmental trends
  • Measure PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) and drive green data center initiatives

An intelligent energy management solution that monitors and measures all the energy usage in your facility.

Our solution combines rack PDUs, whether it’s Raritan’s intelligent PDUs or PDUs by most other manufacturers, with our powerful energy management software.

By measuring IT equipment power consumption, and consolidating that information into actionable reports, our solution enables you to save power and money, calculate Green Grid’s PUE Level 2 and Level 3, as well as drive your green data center initiatives.

Add environmental sensors, and you can also monitor temperature and humidity to confidently raise the ambient temperature of your data center to reduce cooling power consumption. You can also save costs by receiving alerts when thresholds are reached – and act before it’s too late.

Our energy management solution helps you become more efficient in energy consumption by providing:

  • Psychrometric charting to calculate possible energy savings from simply increasing temperature
  • Energy cost bill-back reports to drive behavior
  • Decommission flags to forecast energy savings when eliminating servers
  • Baseline consumption and changes of various energy-saving initiatives
