Nlyte Software, RF Code and Server Technology Launch Seven-City Seminar Series to Optimize Data Center Efficiency
Capacity planning, full utilization of facilities, increased power costs and lower power availability, environmental monitoring, proactive power management and predicting future power needs are just a few of the challenges in the data center from both an operational and financial perspective.
Visible failures in the data center, such as asset loss, security breaches and the resulting fines are all a result of poor visibility and management of the data center as a single system. To help face these challenges and reduce these financial impacts, Nlyte Software, RF Code and Server Technology (News - Alert) are hosting a seven-city seminar series to help data center professionals optimize their data center energy and operational efficiency.
The companies provide a truly integrated suite of asset management, environmental monitoring, asset tracking, security and intelligent power management capabilities, which improve the speed at which value is available and increases the visibility of enhanced performance and the business benefits that provide tangible return on that investment and a reduced total cost of ownership.
On their agenda for 2013, data center professionals are thinking about transactional costs for the delivery of services, existing exposures, cost reduction, audit control, financial and regulatory compliance, infrastructure security and power consumption. The seminar series will help these professionals manage the data center to meet their different business needs.
RF Code and Server Technology recently partnered up to release an integrated data center solution of RF Code’s wire-free Sensor Manager solution with Server Technology’s Sentry Power Manager (SPM) data center power monitoring solution via an SPM API integration. The solution makes it significantly easier to monitor and manage the factors that impact the efficient, fiscally-smart running of a data center, which can include power density, proper and continuous maintenance, design capacity, facility occupancy and power loading rate and site location.
Nlyte is also a solutions partner for Server Technology via SPM. The Nlyte DCIM suite provides the predictive intelligence and management controls needed to achieve smarter, more efficient and highly available data centers.
