Raritan’s Power IQ DCIM Software imparts “Bird Eye View”


New Delhi / Bangalore: Raritan, a leading provider of data center infrastructure management (DCIM) and rack power distribution solutions, today announced that its Power IQ DCIM software for power management helps organization to completely monitor the power distribution in data centers and helps in further maximizing the uptime and availability of power.

The Raritan’s power management software gives 360 degree bird eye view of power chain in the data center. It helps in validating the thresholds settings, and also gets alerts and notifications in time to the data center manager and helps them to take the necessary actions before it becomes an issue or it is impacted on users.

Raritan’s Power IQ DCIM software for Power Management gives the overall picture on how much power is consumed at a moment’s notice, down to individual servers when coupled with Raritan’s PX intelligent Rack PDUs with individual outlet metering.  Raritan’s enterprise class power monitoring software has been battle-tested, monitoring some of the world’s largest data center in the industry.  With an intuitive simple to configure dashboard, the organization can see power utilization trends and capacity across the power chain, find stranded power, and improve data center uptime with thresholds and alerts.

 Mr Sanjay Motwani, Sales Director – India & SEA reportedly said, that, “Power resources are increasingly constrained and the cost of energy is spiraling out of control.  The organizations need to know how much power they are using, how much is available and where they can improve efficiency. As budgets are decreasing, having a tool to help answer these questions will address the power concerns and thereby help in planning power usage in a more controlled and effective manner, as power is very critical.”

Data centers are often over-provisioned and excess capacity typically exists in them. With DCIM tools, the organizations can find the stranded capacity, use it with confidence and delay spending millions to build their next data center. Data centers and IT labs everywhere are approaching operational capacity limits as the cost involved in managing the power usage is worrying them big time. By knowing the real time and trended power consumption at every point in data center power chain is becoming a prerequisite for the organizations’ growth.
