We got a nice mention in this article at the website Silicon Angle. Their article is based on a report by Wikibon that shows how intelligent racks are technically and economically advantageous for data centers.
The figures they quote are staggering. A whopping 70% boost in asset management.
Raritan’s smart rack management solution captures detailed power statistics at the room-, zone-, row-, rack, PDU, and outlet-level on a continuous basis. It helps data center managers track and visualize data center assets, collect a wide range of power information including current, voltage, kW, kVA, kWh, and environmental data such as temperature, humidity, airflow, and differential air pressure. Plug-and-play sensors are easily deployed such as at cool-air inlets following ASHRAE guidelines. Raritan’s solution also offers multiple layers of security – including SNMPv3, HTTPS, SSL, AES, Active Directory®, LDAP/S, and SSH.
Data center managers can easily monitor their operation’s health, maintain a holistic view of the data center and quickly take corrective action when necessary with a smart rack solution.
