No Limits Software provides one of the industry’s most comprehensive software solutions for managing assets, power, cooling, and energy efficiency in data centers. “Using a wide range of network-enabled technologies, our RaMP DCIM solution can produce the most complete picture of the data center landscape, from virtual servers to servers and network equipment to the power and cooling infrastructure,” said Dave Cole, president of No Limits Software. He added, “We found the Packet Power products to be very easy to configure and provided seamless integration when combined with RaMP’s auto-discovery features.”
Packet Power smart power cables offer a flexible, simple to install and highly granular way of capturing power consumption and temperature information. Packet Power environmental monitors provide an easy-to-install wireless monitoring solution for capturing detailed data on temperature, relative humidity, differential pressure and dry contact switches. The power and environmental monitoring devices communicate over a secure wireless network that configures itself, making it equally suitable for a single site with a few monitoring points or multiple facilities with thousands.
“With power costs on the rise, there is intense focus on improving the energy efficiency in the data center,” said Steve Van Tassel, CEO of Packet Power. “By making it easy to accurately track and allocate energy usage, data center managers can take new steps to reduce their operating costs and extend the life of their data center. The integration of Packet Power products into the No Limits Software RaMP DCIM solution provides customers with the detailed operating metrics they need to effectively operate their data centers”, added Van Tassel.
The RaMP DCIM solution provides the following benefits:
- Auto-discovery of detailed device information
- Power and environmental monitoring down to the device level
- Server monitoring to identify servers which should be retired, virtualized or consolidated
- Software and operating system license management
- Automated change control to reduce MTTR and increase availability
