Raritan’s Intelligent Energy Management’s Automatic Tracking and Large Screen Energy Dashboard Pinpoints Energy Saving Opportunities

Helps in reducing the datacenter energy consumption costs – quickly and easily

raritan-logo-300x3001Raritan,a leading provider of data center infrastructure management (DCIM) and rack power distribution solutions, today announced that Raritan’s intelligent energy management solution help enterprises to reduce data center energy consumption by allowing organizations to safely increase ambient temperatures at the Data Center. It has been found that a Data Center Manager can save up to 3% of energy costs for every degree of upward change in the baseline temperature.  Additionally, Agent -less graceful shut downsand start ups of servers connected to any rack power distribution units (PDUs) enables energy saving by scheduling automatic power cycling of an “IT device group” when not needed.  For example, a Lab manager could save about 25 percent on energy consumption by turning off systems at 7 pm on Friday and turning them on at 5 am on Monday. Automatic tracking and a large screen energy dashboard helps to manage energy usage and pinpoint savings opportunities.

Raritan’s energy management solution offers valuable insight to help organizations to find savings in the data center. It also designed in a way to help IT and facilities managers with the following benefits-

  • Reduce capital expenditures and save on operating expenses
  • Generate energy cost reports for customers
  • Create a baseline and certify changes in energy and carbon footprint
  • Easily identify active power, energy, cost and environmental trends
  • Measure PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) and drive green data center initiatives

Connecting PDUs with Raritan’s Power IQ® energy management software will help data centers and lab

managers better understand environmental conditions at the rack in order to use power and cooling resources optimally without compromising performance. This makes it still easier for a data center operator to understand and better manage the following:

  • Save on operating expenses and delay capital expenditures
  • Achieve agentless, graceful shutdown of Windows®, Linux® and UNIX® device groups
  • Generate energy cost reports for customers and clients
  • Create a baseline and certify changes in energy and carbon footprint
  • Easily identify active power, energy and cost trends
  • Measure PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) and drive green initiatives

McAfee, AECOM, National Guard, AOL etc. are few clients to name who have been using Power IQ® energy management solution.

Mr Sanjay MotwaniSales Director – India & SEA said, “Raritans’ Power IQ’s advanced energy management software, is the perfect solution for organizations grappling with spiraling energy costs and working towards Green Data Centers”. Our Vendor- agnostic, agent- less solutions provides the information and control to be more energy efficient and find stranded power capacity in areas, such as over cooling and running underutilized servers.

Mr Will StevensSenior IT Director at AOL said, “Raritan’s solution is helping us identify areas where we can conserve. It helps us identify devices that are wasting energy.
