With servers generating more heat than ever and rack densities on the rise, hot spots are a natural by-product of the demands of modern computing.
Fortunately, Raritan offers an intelligent environment management solution that not only helps you identify potential trouble areas, but also helps you save energy and maintain a safe environment for your IT equipment.
Our solution brings together the power of Raritan’s environmental sensors and Power IQ®, our award-winning energy management software.
Raritan’s family of intelligent rack iPDUs and inline meters are designed to accept our plug-and-play environmental sensors – temperature, humidity, air flow and air pressure. Placed strategically in your cold air and hot air aisles, at the top, middle and bottom of the rack, and cool air plenums and vents, the information gathered by our sensors is sent via the iPDUs to be recorded and analyzed by our energy management software.
Our environment management solution also helps you become more efficient in your energy consumption with:
- Psychrometric charting to calculate possible energy savings from simply increasing temperature
- Agentless, graceful shutdown of Windows®, Linux® and Unix® device groups
- Energy cost bill-back reports to drive behavior
- Decommission flags to forecast energy savings when eliminating servers
Hot spots. May be good for nightlife, but not for data centers and IT labs. So take the first step towards eliminating them by scheduling an environment management solution test drive now.
