Emerson Network Power has introduced Smart Solutions, a family of intelligent, integrated infrastructure systems for the data centre.
The company says 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 SmartRow, SmartMod and SmartAisle offerings which 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 centre 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 per cent. It can cut on-going energy costs by up to 30 per cent.
The SmartMod offering is an intelligent, integrated infrastructure included in a rapid-deployment enclosure. It can be used to supplement existing data centre capacity or can be deployed as a standalone, remote data centre 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 centre densities without sacrificing availability.
The SmartAisle infrastructure can increase efficiency and provide flexibility through row-based infrastructure for new and existing data centres. 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 per cent.
“Businesses continue to be challenged with balancing objectives for capacity, space utilization, availability and efficiency,” said Stefano Mozzato, Marketing Director Liebert EMEA. “Designed according to industry best practices for the data centre, our Smart Solutions portfolio delivers Efficiency Without Compromise through a cost-effective power, precision cooling and management infrastructure that helps companies achieve their IT objectives regardless of size and complexity.”
