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.
