Rackwise, Inc. (OTC: RACK) (the "Company"), a leading developer of data center infrastructure management ("DCIM") software and service solutions, today announced that a Fortune 500 leading Northern California-based operator of off-price apparel and home fashion retail chains (the “Retailer”) has selected Rackwise DCiM X TM to manage its data centers, including the consolidation and relocation of its existing centers into a single new location.
The Retailer operates a number of recognized retail chains, including one of the country’s largest off-price apparel and home fashion chains, with nearly 1100 locations throughout the United States and its territories offering first-quality, in-season, name brand and designer apparel, accessories, footwear and home fashions at savings of 20% to 60% off department and specialty store regular prices.
The Retailer currently utilizes a network of data centers throughout the country to support and manage its business activities. To optimize data center operations specifically and enhance information technology (“IT”) infrastructure generally, the Retailer is consolidating its existing data centers into a single new location. The successful launch of the new data center is critical to the Retailer’s immediate and longer term business strategies and growth objectives. Core to the success of this consolidation is the ability to identify, track and readily deploy the Retailer’s current inventory of data center and other IT assets. Equally critical is enabling the Retailer to plan and model multiple prospective configurations to ensure a smooth and seamless transition to the new data center intelligently designed for optimal operational and fiscal efficiency. After conducting an expansive evaluation of available DCIM offerings, the Retailer selected the Rackwise ® solution primarily for its ease of use and wide range of superior features and functionalities, which include asset management, capacity planning, power management and robust modeling tools facilitating more extensive advance planning and evaluation of what-if scenarios.
