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

  • Smart Choices for your Digital Infrastructure

    Tue, 28 Jun 2016 10:00:00

    Your data centre is a key part of successfully transforming and building your digital business. The challenge today is to create a highly reliable, flexible, scalable and cost-effective digital infrastructure. Your cabling system is an important element in the creation of that infrastructure. Attend and learn how to: - Piece together different elements of standards, technical specifications and physical properties in order to choose the right networking equipment - Reduce the time and labour spent maintaining, repairing or installing cabling by adopting improved design and management practices.

  • Designing Flexibility into your Data Center Power Infrastructure

    Wed, 4 May 2016 18:00:00

    As power density is rapidly increasing in today’s data center, provisioning the right amount of power to the rack without under sizing or over provisioning the power chain has become a real design challenge. Managing the current and future power needs of the data center requires Cap-Ex to deploy a flexible power infrastructure: safely handling peak power demands, balancing critical loads and easily scaling to meet growing power needs. In this webinar you will learn: > How to create Long term power flexibility and improved availability for your operation > How to increase energy efficiency and improve SLAs through a comprehensive set of best practices.
