Server Technology Unveils Solutions Partner Program to Deliver Unified Solution Integration
Everything is in full bloom with the start of spring today – from the flowers to the grass to new life. Embracing the season of new life, and perhaps new relationships, data center power distribution provider Server Technology (News - Alert) has announced its new Server Tech Solutions Partner Program, designed to bring together complementary data center infrastructure management vendors.
“Server Technology has been innovating data center power delivery for more than 28 years and as the leader in high quality rack level power distribution, we understand how the role of data center IT professionals is changing,” said Mark Harris, vice president of marketing for Server Technology. “Customers understand that no single data center infrastructure management (DCIM) vendor can provide everything they need and they’re looking for guidance in the DCIM area. With our new Solutions Partner Program, we are taking a leadership role to help guide customers towards the goal of energy-aware DCIM. Many DCIM vendors have been able to discuss what is theoretically possible, but members of our Solutions Partner Program can show the combined solution in operation today.”
In order to be a part of this new program, vendors must have completed some level of integration between their own solution and Server Technology’s and demonstrate the ability to identify successful deployments for these integrations within actual customer sites. This is imperative because, when customers select a Solutions Partner Program member for their own deployments, they can now rest assured that these solutions have been demonstrated to interoperate, leveraging each vendor’s strengths towards a comprehensive solution, according to company officials.
The inaugural Solutions Partner Program members include: CrestPoint Solutions, Damac Products, Digi International, K2 Racks, FieldView Solutions, nlyte Software, Minicom (News - Alert) Advanced Systems, Power Assure, Quest Software, Rackwise, Rittal, RF Code, SharkRack and Universal Electric Corporation.
“It’s great to see Server Technology bringing vendors together to partner and ultimately integrate their technologies to build bigger value for customers,” said Fred Dirla, CEO of FieldView Solutions. “FieldView has always been a huge supporter of building customer value through partnerships which has made us one of the industry’s leading suppliers of DCIM category asset and energy management solutions today,”
Chris Gaskins, vice president of product development for Austin-based RF Code, echoed that Server Technology is a “great partner.”
“They are assembling some of the best infrastructure management experts in the business to provide integrated, cohesive solutions for data center customers,” he said. “Together, our partnership is bringing customers a powerful, innovative way to monitor their energy usage.”
