RiT Technologies (NASDAQ: RITT) today launched the RiT CenterMind Solution, a new approach to data center infrastructure management (DCIM), which enables data center managers to optimize performance through a real-time consolidated view of data center IT assets, connectivity, power and environmental conditions.
New Data Center Infrastructure Management Approach
The RiT CenterMind Solution presents a major shift in the DCIM sector. Through a single solution, it monitors and manages the high volume and array of information in today’s resource-hungry data centers. With thousands of discrete sensors and control points to be monitored and increasing pressure for higher server density, energy efficiency and more capacity, data center managers need a comprehensive, integrated DCIM approach to deliver the service levels their customers demand.
The RiT CenterMind Solution combines environment, power, connectivity and security management, so eliminating the need for complex and costly integration. In addition, by automating laborious provisioning and network planning, data center managers can increase efficiency, reduce downtime and improve service.
Each module of the RiT CenterMind Solution offers class-leading features and combined, they form a comprehensive DCIM approach through four core components:
* CenterMind management software
* CenterMind G+ to optimize environment conditions
* CenterMind P+ for improved power consumption monitoring and control
* PatchView, the market-leading intelligent infrastructure management hardware to increase utilization of networked assets.
Information from each module feeds into the RiT CenterMind management software to enable proactive operations management across the entire data center. The software provides clear, actionable information from the mass of data available about connectivity, services, capacity, security, power and environmental conditions.
RiT Technologies first introduced the data center industry to the concept of intelligent connectivity management, and has now entered the DCIM sector with a single platform, giving an online, real-time, centralized and intuitive view of all data center assets wherever they are located – whether in the next building or around the world.
Ben Carmi, VP of Product Management and Business Development of RiT Technologies commented: “Already working in many organizations across the world, RiT has incorporated years of experience in control, security and management into the RiT CenterMind Solution. We are the market leaders in the intelligent infrastructure management sector and with RiT CenterMind Solution, we are bringing a new level of control, efficiency, agility and security to the mission-critical data center.”
RiT CenterMind Solution is designed to deliver a clear and measurable ROI, with benefits including:
o Improved data center management through centralized command and control of all infrastructure elements
o Enhanced agility, enabling the data center to keep pace with dynamic business developments
o Enhanced planning capabilities due to the improved visibility of current data and sophisticated tools for predicting future usage; this enables the data center to do more with less, resulting in a significant savings of CAPEX
o Providing a centralized up-to-date and reliable data source, which reduces OPEX by eliminating the need for physical audits before performing changes in the data center
o Full visibility of existing IT and infrastructure assets – what they are and where they are located
o Optimized power consumption and an improved environmental profile
o Enhanced troubleshooting capabilities through real-time connectivity status and alerting systems
o Dramatically reduced risk of human error
