Cisco Live, Las Vegas (Vocus) July 2, 2010
Netformx®, the global leader in automated network design, quoting and proposal generation platforms announced today they have signed an agreement to add data center infrastructure provider Emerson Network Power to the Netformx KnowledgeBase™. This alliance will enable DesignXpert users to quickly and easily incorporate Liebert uninterruptible power supply (UPS) solutions and Liebert monitoring and management technologies into any network design.
As a member of the Netformx Alliance Program, Emerson Network Power’s products and services will be available through DesignXpert to enable network professionals to address power and cooling issues during the initial network design stage. Additionally, engineers will be able to help enterprises implement data center solutions with integrated power systems that perform with minimal waste and maximum scalability. DesignXpert users will soon be able to select the appropriate system from the KnowledgeBase™ using the “drag and drop” feature to quickly incorporate power systems into their design. These systems will then be automatically included in all of DesignXpert standard customer deliverables such as Bills of Material, Statements of Work, Proposals and Diagrams.
“Emerson Network Power understands the importance of easy-to-use configuration tools that allow users to configure and quote unique solutions. With that in mind, we are excited to partner with a leader in the industry that can offer Liebert solutions to a broad range of channel partners,” said Matt Kightlinger, director of solutions for the Liebert products business of Emerson Network Power North America. “By making it easy to attach Liebert’s innovative power and monitoring solutions to network designs, it will enable channel partners to provide their customers with best-in-class technologies from Emerson Network Power. “
Often, a decision to use one manufacturer over another is based on how easy it is for the design engineer to access a manufacturer’s information. Partnership with Netformx will increase visibility of Emerson Network Power’s Liebert products and services to thousands of network professionals around the world. “Netformx, as the leader in automated end-to-end network design platforms, empowers network professionals to significantly increase productivity and create comprehensive, validated solutions for their customers”, said Netformx CEO, Ittai Bareket. “As part of our strategic direction expanding DesignXpert capabilities in the data center space, we are excited to include vendors such as Emerson Network Power and its Liebert products and solutions in our Knowledgebase.”
