Quotes
Thomas Waun, president of Emerson Network Power’s Aperture business:
“Our customers have told us that in the wake of the recent downturn, there is a new paradigm for efficiently managing data centers. Improving overall efficiency is the new imperative in business and in the data center, and Aperture Integrated Resource Manager is a visionary solution that will provide significant cost savings through holistic management of energy consumption, capital resources and process efficiency. This improved overall operational efficiency will enable organizations to save millions of dollars by extending the life of their data centers by months or, in some cases, years.”

David Cappuccio, vice president and chief of research, Gartner:
”We are entering an era in which real-time, intelligent monitoring and resource management is a fundamental part of the data center manager's arsenal to continually improve efficiencies and performance, especially regarding energy consumption. An emerging market in data center management is focusing on [physical resource] infrastructure management, which can be viewed as a combination of traditional asset management tracking, performance management and energy and workload management. This is opening a new facet in IT managers' requirement to be aware of what their assets are doing, and of how that work is being accomplished in conjunction with the IT and facilities infrastructures.”
