San Francisco, California – (The Hosting News) – February 18, 2009 – Visual Network Design Inc. (dba RACKWISE), recently released version 3.4 of its Data Center Manager (DCM) solution, offering comprehensive and intelligent cost savings analysis and green reporting.
Dom Lesme, VP and General Manager at RACKWISE noted, ”In challenging economic times, the ability to save power and space, quantify those savings in monetary terms, and ‘Green’ the data center are critical parts of an overall data center strategy.”
RACKWISE DCM 3.4 introduces the Green Report, giving data center organizations the ability to ‘Green’ the data center as per The Green Grid’s metrics, and Cost/Savings Analysis, which quantifies the monetary value of proposed changes in a data center related to power, heat and space.
The RACKWISE Green Report gives IT organizations the tool necessary to ‘Green’ the data center, using the metrics of Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) and Data Center Efficiency (DCiE), from The Green Grid, the industry-acknowledged authority on ‘Greening’ the data center.
The Cost/Savings Analysis provides the critical information necessary to determine the financial impact of proposed data center changes. Data center organizations can quickly identify equipment to decommission, select equipment to commission, and then build a comprehensive summary of savings. The net changes in power, heat, space and weight are displayed, along with the associated monetary value of those changes.
RACKWISE’s revolutionary new product set enables IT organizations to achieve the highest levels of efficiency in the data center, and breaks new ground with the next level of Data Center Intelligence (DCI), adding to the RACKWISE philosophy of multi-layered data center management.
Founded in 2003, RACKWISE develops innovative software technology for the data center. RACKWISE software visualizes, documents, models, analyzes and manages the data center. The RACKWISE product family is broadly used by Global 2000 enterprises, service providers and SMB’s to intelligently plan and manage their IT physical infrastructure.
