Energy usage in data center racks: Raritan integrates JouleX Energy Manager with its intelligent power distribution units

24 Jan 2013

Raritan today announced it has extended the functionality of its market leading intelligent power distribution units (iPDU). The company's new partnership with energy management specialist JouleX has resulted in it being possible to integrate the JouleX Energy Manager (JEM) software with Raritan’s iPDUs. The software enables management of energy consumption in data centers and offices, providing organizations with the tools to reduce energy usage and organizational risk. JEM works in an agentless fashion, i.e. without the need for installation of software agents on individual energy consuming devices. The functionality resulting from the integration of the JouleX Energy Manager into Raritan products can be seen by visitors to the Gold Exhibitors' Area (G2) at the Cisco Live Exhibition, which is being held from 28 January to 1 February 2013 at ICC London ExCel.
