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

  • IoT is Coming to Your Data Center: Is DCIM Your Secret Weapon?

    Tue, 29 Sep 2015 16:00:00

    The IoT wave is predicted to deliver 30 billion new connected devices. That’s a lot of new data fighting for capacity within existing data centers. IoT is not just about analytics, it’s about all the data that needs to be managed, accessed and stored. A lack of a strategy for your data center in the face of IoT can put you at risk of major disruptions in service to your customers. In this webcast, you’ll learn how you can use DCIM to help evaluate and manage the impact of IoT on your data center. Experts from IDC, Logicalis, and CA Technologies will share: -What is the predicted overall impact of IoT and all of its data on the data center? -How can you deploy a more forward-looking capacity management approach? -How can you use DCIM to get more capacity out of your data center? -How to leverage DCIM to align IT Operations?

  • 5 Reasons Why DCIM Has Failed

    Wed, 15 Jul 2015 10:00:00

    Historically, DCIM systems have over-promised and under-delivered. Vendors have supplied complex and costly solutions which fail to address real business drivers and goals. Yet the rewards can be vast and go well beyond better-informed decision-making, to facilitate continuous improvement and cost savings across the infrastructure. How can vendors, customers and the industry as a whole take a better approach? Find out on our webinar on Wednesday 15 July.
