No Limits Software announces version 3.6 of their RaMP DCIM (Data Center Infrastructure Management) solution with a completely new data center view, support for many new device types (including breakers, chillers, CRAHs, and busways), enhanced alarm notification, new task and workflow functionality, data logging enhancements, and a number of other new features.

The RaMP DCIM solution provides data center management from the virtual machine to the IT infrastructure (servers, blades, storage, network) to the Facilities infrastructure (power, cooling, security, environmental monitoring). RaMP’s auto-discovery allows customers to be up and running in hours rather than months, significantly reducing the time and cost for collecting the asset configuration data while also improving the accuracy by 10-15%. The intuitive user interface reduces training time. RaMP also provides software and operating system license management, state of the art workflow management to manage tasks, and contract and cost management for all assets.
