Emerson continues Aperture commitment for data center management

Emerson Network Power’s Avocent business released a new version of its Aperture Suite for data center management and optimization, proving it will not abandon the Aperture and Avocent brand names as it continues along its Trellis roadmap.

Emerson acquired the infrastructure software company in 2008 and integrated it into its Avocent business data center management software business.

The combination has provided Emerson with a platform to build its real-time Trellis Suite, which first launched last year with the goal of providing unified management using SiteScan, which can measure facilities including gensets, transfer switches, uninterruptable power supply systems and more.

New updates to the Aperture Suite sold as version 650 include greater visibility into the relationships between physical and virtual layers and ability to consign resources to individual departments or organizations.

According to Emerson Network Power Avocent business President of Global Sales, Marketing and Professional Services Tom Waun, the suite enables companies dealing with virtual sprawl and growth in data to better mitigate risk and see more benefit from virtualization efforts in the data center.

“This new Aperture Suite release advances the state-of-the-art in DCIM (Data Center Infrastructure Management) by giving data center mangers the tools to control virtual sprawl and make better spending decisions when it comes to growth,” Waun said.

In particular, the updates are seen in Aperture’s Capacity Manager, which has new capabilities around VMware and Microsoft Virtual Machine Manager to reconcile virtual processes and physical hosts, helping identify underutilized resources and prevent infrastructure overload, according to Avocent

It has also includes a new high-level dashboard which provides fast assessment of power and cooling, personnel and space efficiency metrics.

Also this month, Emerson acquired Avtron Loadbank, which designs and manufactures load banks and testing systems for standby power generation, UPS and power equipment industries.

The company will sit under Emerson’s ASCO business which provides power switching and control products.

    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.

  • Do Industry Standards Hold Back Data Centre Innovation?

    Thu, 11 Jun 2015 14:00:00

    Upgrading legacy data centres to handle ever-increasing social media, mobile, big data and Cloud workloads requires significant investment. Yet over 70% of managers are being asked to deliver future-ready infrastructure with reduced budgets. But what if you could square the circle: optimise your centre’s design beyond industry standards by incorporating the latest innovations, while achieving a significant increase in efficiency and still maintaining the required availability?
