RiT ADDS COMPREHENSIVE POWER MANAGEMENT, DASHBOARD & REPORTING CAPABILITIES IN NEW CENTERMIND DCIM VERSION
Tel Aviv, Israel – September 4, 2012 – RiT Technologies (NASDAQ: RITT) today announced that it has expanded the capabilities of its unique CenterMind software to support comprehensive data center (DC) power utilization management, enhanced reporting and dashboard capabilities. The integration of this advanced functionality with CenterMind’s superior space, connectivity and security management capabilities enables it to deliver a new level of control to DC staff and a previously unreachable level of performance optimization of DC operations.
RiT’s CenterMind Solution positions RIT in the heart of the DCIM sector, with advanced tools from deployment through provisioning to ongoing operations and maintenance. CenterMind’s sophisticated installation tools enable fast integration with the DC’s many thousands of discrete sensors and control points, making it easy to initiate comprehensive monitoring of all DC operations from a single dashboard center. In addition, CenterMind’s automated provisioning module brings true optimization to the DC’s space and power resource utilization, dynamically improving its energy and operational efficiency.
By combining environment, power, connectivity and security management capabilities, CenterMind eliminates the need for complex and costly integration. In addition, by automating laborious provisioning and network planning activities, CenterMind enables data center managers to increase efficiency, reduce downtime, and improve service.
Commenting on the news, Dr. Ben-Eshay, RiT’s CTO, and Dr. Vadim Leiderman, RiT’s CEO, said, “With CenterMind, we are bringing a totally new, out-of-the-box vision of data center management to the data center world. As the industry’s most experienced IIM company with complex deployments in thousands of data centers throughout the world, we believe that we are uniquely qualified to introduce a new level of innovation, control, efficiency, agility, and security to the mission-critical data center, and are very excited to roll out our advanced offerings.”
