New York City (April 16, 2009)—Raritan was recognized today by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for its participation in the Data Collection Initiative, which is part of the agency’s program to develop an ENERGY STAR rating for data center infrastructure and to help operators improve data center energy efficiency.
As a first step in developing the ENERGY STAR rating, the EPA is collecting data on energy use and operating characteristics from a large number of existing data centers—including both stand-alone facilities and data centers located in offices and other types of buildings. The year-long data collection project is slated to be completed in June.

SOMERSET, N.J., (November 24, 2008) - Raritan today announced that its Dominion® PX intelligent power distribution units (PDUs) support IBM® Systems Director Active Energy Manager (AEM) V4.1.
A key component of the IBM Cool Blue™ portfolio within Project Big Green, IBM Active Energy Manager provides clients with a view of the actual power used, as opposed to benchmarked power consumption, and can effectively allocate, match and cap power and thermal limits in the data center—at the system, chassis or rack level. To help customers monitor data center power usage, AEM uses autonomic capabilities to track energy consumption across multiple platforms.
