SOMERSET, N.J., Sept. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Raritan, a leading provider of power monitoring and data center infrastructure management (DCIM) solutions, will be speaking at AFCOM's Data Center World next week on using full-configuration management and real-time monitoring DCIM tools in data centers.
"Today's data centers are dynamic, have higher power densities, and are more complex with many interdependencies," said James Cerwinski, Raritan's Director of Software. "Yet, managers are asked to maintain uptime while more efficiently using existing resources of power, cooling, infrastructure and people. With the right DCIM tools this objective is obtainable."
On September 30, Cerwinski will provide an overview on how Raritan's DCIM solution – with full-configuration management and real-time monitoring capabilities – is helping data center customers, such as British Airways. According to Keith Bott, Service Manager-Equipment & Facilities at British Airways, Raritan DCIM software helps bring order to the complex maze of data center infrastructures.
"When you have a dynamic and complex environment with many moving parts and interdependencies, you look for solutions to help make it easier to manage," said Bott. " Raritan's DCIM software does that by providing us with an easy way to get accurate information on our infrastructures. Because the solution covers the entire lifecycle of an asset – from the point it is placed in the rack to when it is moved – it captures all the key information necessary to support asset, capacity and change management in a data center. As a result, it enables us to quickly allocate space for new servers, manage power and network connectivity, issue work orders; and, provides capacity planning across all British Airways data centers."Recognized as a top DCIM solution provider, Raritan helps data centers clearly visualize infrastructure resources; keep accurate track of data center assets; improve asset "change, move and add" and configuration processes; and find infrastructure capacity – including space and energy – to expand the life of a data center and keep it healthy.
