10 Noteworthy Products On View At Cisco Live


Raritan

Hoping to capture more of the enterprise spend on maintenance and power -- and help customers save some money with more efficient solutions -- several vendors have hitched their wagons to Cisco EnergyWise, the Cisco offering that enables organizations to monitor and control the power consumption of their devices.

At Cisco Live, data center specialist Raritan confirmed that its PX intelligent power distribution units are now EnergyWise-certified, meaning that Raritan's networked units can provide detailed energy information to the EnergyWise platform such as up-to-the-minute readings on volt, watt, amp and kilowatt-hour consumption, as well as temperature, humidity, static pressure and airflow in server racks. Raritan claims +/- 1% accuracy, and the Raritan units work as endpoints on an EnergyWise-equipped network. They also work with Cisco UCS and Nexus products, Raritan said.
