Server Technology and Opengear announced a  complete remote access cellular solution that includes both power and out of band management for both data centers and remote locations. 

The combined offering integrates control of Server Technology's Smart power distribution unit (PDU) product line with Opengear's infrastructure management solutions and allows network administrators out-of-band control of systems connected to and powered by those products. 

"Power is a key element of remote management. Combining Server Technology’s power solutions with cellular out of band access from Opengear provides total control of the environment," commented Rick Stevenson, CEO of Opengear. Said Calvin Nicholson, Server Technology’s senior director of software and firmware, “System administrators can not only have complete control over their infrastructure equipment connected to Opengear devices but now are also able to control power utilizing Opengear's integrated cellular technology. Not only does the solution provide power control directly, the solution is self aware, allowing devices to take action based on a user defined "rule book,” which now includes the option to power cycle individual or all of Server Technology’s Smart PDUs,” said Nicholson.  
Samples of common network management challenges resolved by the combined Server Technology and Opengear solutions include:

·        Maintaining complete control with true out-of-band power monitoring and control

·        Easily provisioning, deploying and maintaining remote infrastructure

·        Reducing time to repair with event-triggered log retrievals and simplified messaging

·        Minimizing down time with on-site preventative maintenance and health monitoring

·        Improving infrastructure efficiency with Smart M2M auto response and elevation

·        Reducing power consumption by allowing for an easy way to remotely shutdown devices

·        Ensuring quality of service by escalating alert notifications for protracted outages

·        Simplifying remote control with SMS and web-initiated custom local actions

  • White Space 46: We'll always have Paris

    Fri, 15 Jul 2016 10:35:00

    This week on White Space, we look at the safest data center locations in the world, as rated by real estate management firm Cushman & Wakefield. It will come as no surprise that Iceland comes out on top, while the US and the UK have barely made the top 10. French data center specialist Data4 is promoting Paris as a global technology hub, where it is planning to invest at least €100 million. Another French data center owned by Webaxys is repurposing old Nissan Leaf car batteries in partnership with Eaton. Brexit update: We’ve also heard industry body TechUK outline an optimistic vision of Britain outside the EU – as long as the country remains within the single market and subscribes to the principles of the General Data Protection Regulation.

  • Powering Big Data with Big Solar

    Tue, 12 Jul 2016 18:00:00

    The data center industry is experiencing explosive growth. The expansion of online users and increased transactions will result in the online population to reach 50% of the world’s projected population, moving from 2.3 billion in 2012 to an expected 3.6 billion people by 2017. This growth is requiring data centers to address the carbon impact of their business and to integrate more renewable resources into their projects. Join First Solar to learn: -Why major C&I companies are looking to utility-scale solar as a viable addition to their energy sourcing portfolios. -How cost-effective utility-scale solar options can support datacenters in securing renewable supply. -Case study of how a major data center player implemented solar into their portfolio

  • DC Professional - Meet John Laban

    Tue, 12 Jul 2016 15:25:00

    John has worked in the Telecommunications and Information Transport Systems (ITS) industry for over 35 years, beginning his career at the London Stock Exchange as a BT telecommunication technician. Believing there was a general lack of quality in the ITS industry, John was driven to "professionalize" the ITS industry – starting with a professional diploma programme for the Telecommunications Managers Association – which led to him becoming the first BICSI RCDD in the UK and soon after, a BICSI Master Instructor teaching RCDD and Technician programmes.
