Raritan has announced that its suite of intelligent power and data center management products for monitoring, controlling and establishing energy policies in data centers are designed to support high-performance data centers, such as those built on Cisco's Unified Computing System (UCS) blade servers, Cisco Nexus switches, and other components of the Cisco data center platform. The company will be demonstrating its products at Cisco Live! 2010.


Raritan's solutions are designed to support high-performance data centers, such as those built on Cisco's Unified Computing System (UCS).

"Raritan' s PX intelligent rack power distribution units (iPDU) and Power IQ Energy Management Software, for example, support the high-power requirements of blade servers. Raritan's three-phase 60A iPDU models can deliver up to 22kVA and support temperature and humidity sensors that monitor blade server inlet temperatures. Power IQ can provide a data center manager valuable information about energy consumption and environmental conditions – such as peak load, energy cost, temperature trends and carbon footprint.

"Raritan also will be showing at Cisco Live! how its dcTrack data center infrastructure management (DCIM) software tracks and manages the cable (fiber and copper) infrastructure topology in Cisco-equipped data centers. Designed to improve capacity planning and utilization, and drive costs out of data center operations, Raritan's DCIM software tracks a data center's networking assets, as well as its connectivity -- from the switch to the patch panel to the servers. dcTrack's extensive visual library includes Visio stencils icons of Cisco equipment, with front and rear views. Users can easily visualize and automate the tracking and management of IT and facility systems. When a customer wants to add new equipment, dcTrack provides a bird’s eye view of whether or not there is space, power, cooling and floor load to support the physical provisioning of that equipment in the data center."
