No Limits Software announces the integration with Server Technology’s Sentry family of rack power distribution units (PDUs) with their RaMP data center management solution.
No Limits Software is quickly becoming the industry’s most comprehensive software solution for identifying highly granular operational information contained within active assets across Enterprise-class data centers. “Using a wide range of network-enabled technologies, our RaMP solution can produce the most complete picture of the data center landscape in real-time,” said Dave Cole, president of No Limits Software.
As a foundational power supplier for the data center, Server Technology continues to pioneer the rack-based power distribution unit segment, offering the industry’s largest selection of rack-based power distribution, monitoring and management devices in any conceivable power framework up to and including leading-edge 480/277v products. “The stakes are getting much higher now that computing density, data center temperatures and power costs are rapidly rising,” said Mark Harris, vice president of marketing for Server Technology. “A number of smaller vendors offered power solutions in years past, but the loads and temperatures found in today’s data centers are stratifying the ranks due to the extreme level of expertise and discipline required to create PDU solutions that continue to work in these demanding conditions. The value of RaMP is greatly enhanced by the accuracy of our Sentry product line monitoring. The integration of Server Tech’s Sentry family of PDU products into No Limits RaMP provides customers with the most reliable operating metrics available from any PDU supplier”, added Harris. The Sentry family was recently verified by Underwriter Labs as offering the industry’s most accurate measurement at the outlet level within a data center environment.
“This demonstrates yet another step in our continuing journey to ensure RaMP is entirely vendor-neutral and has built-in support for all of the major IT infrastructure providers such as Server Tech,” said Cole. He added, “Server Tech has been providing rack-based PDUs as long as I’ve been in the industry and has thousands of happy data center power distribution customers. It’s a natural for us to lead with the leaders”.
