Santa Clara, CA, July 15, 2015 (Newswire.com) - Tier44 Technologies, Inc. the leading Holistic Data Center Management solutions provider today unveiled its latest update to EM/8, its award winning data center monitoring solution, with direct integration of Server Technology PRO2 series of PDUs.
EM/8 is a complete, hosted data center monitoring solution, which brings real-time and historical metrics to data center operators. EM/8 is also certified with ServiceNow, directly utilizing the ServiceNow configuration and incident management functionality. This dramatically cuts the time and expense traditionally experienced when deploying a Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) solution as it can leverage pre-configured details from the configuration management allowing monitoring services to come online instantaneously without further configuration requirements to be done in another system.
With the data center/mission critical market’s growing need for energy efficiency, energy monitoring systems are more important than ever.
Tier44’s EM/8 combined with the Server Technology PRO2 will make it easy for data center operators to get continuous metrics across the racks and outlets wherever a PRO2 PDU is installed. Alerts, phase balancing details and trending information along with the correlation of power consumption at the rack and circuit level along with the IT equipment is essential to maximize the capacity of the IT infrastructure without risk of circuit overloads. Clemens Pfeiffer, President and CEO of Tier44 Technologies stated, “These new PDUs are great, they are available with the right configurations, support the right interfaces for easy integration and provide the data we are looking for when instrumenting a data center. They also allow users to manage rack provisioning by keeping unused outlets turned off eliminating people mounting equipment randomly, instead turning them on as part of the provisioning process.“
Calvin Nicholson, Senior Director of Product Management and Software stated, "Server Technology has had a long relationship working with Tier 44’s past and current monitoring solutions. With the PRO2 integration we provide power and environmental monitoring, management and control to Tier 44’s monitoring solution providing key information their users need to better manage their IT infrastructure. These combined solutions allow users to make more informed decisions that result in both increased uptime and efficiency.”
PRO2 - Server Technology’s PRO2 platform is a flexible and feature rich hardware and firmware platform with higher on board compute power, support for new thresholds and alarms, integral redundancy, and advanced customization all built into the product. The new PRO2 architecture is ideal in any situation where reliability and uptime are important, particularly in high temperature and high security applications. With PRO2, customers can maintain uptime with access to current data and future trends.
