Columbus, OH (PRWEB) February 2, 2011
Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson and the global leader in enabling Business-Critical Continuity, today introduced Smart Solutions, a family of intelligent, integrated infrastructure systems for the data center. These Smart Solutions bring together best-of-breed technologies and industry best practices to enable cost-effective management of capacity, efficiency and availability through interoperable systems configured to speed implementation, adapt to change and reduce costs.
As part of the family, the company also introduced the SmartRowTM and SmartModTM offerings which, along with the previously released SmartAisleTM offering, exemplify the design principles and value of all Smart Solutions. These offerings are available globally. Timing and availability will differ from region to region.
The SmartRow offering is a unique, standalone data center infrastructure that supports up to 20kW of IT equipment in an enclosed, multi-rack configuration with integrated power, cooling, infrastructure management and fire suppression. By reducing room modifications required to support IT equipment, the configuration can reduce initial capital costs by about 10 percent. It can cut ongoing energy costs by up to 30 percent.
The SmartMod offering is an intelligent, integrated infrastructure included in a rapid-deployment enclosure. It can be used to supplement existing data center capacity or can be deployed as a standalone, remote data center or disaster recovery site. Unlike other containerized systems, the SmartMod enclosure comes in configurations to support a wide range of capacity needs and accommodates the most common data center densities without sacrificing availability.
The SmartAisle infrastructure can increase efficiency and provide flexibility through row-based infrastructure for new and existing data centers. Through a simplified, modular design, SmartAisle configurations enable IT professionals to reduce equipment costs, optimize the use of existing infrastructure, free up stranded capacity and reduce energy consumption by up to 30 percent.
The Smart Solutions leverages Emerson Network Powers breadth of technologies and depth of data center design expertise. The offerings integrate many of Emersons power, precision cooling, monitoring and management technologies and services, including Liebert, Knurr, ASCO, Avocent, and NetSure branded products to deliver efficiency without compromising availability in the data center.
Emersons data center expertise is reflected in the way these infrastructure solutions enable customers to benefit from industry best practices, such as:
