Emerson Network Power Introduces Trellis

The data center infrastructure management platform was designed to bridge the gap between an IT equipment and facilities infrastructure.

Emerson Network Power introduced Trellis this week. Steve Hassell, president of the Avocent business of Emerson Network Power, announced the news via a live webcast from Interop New York.

Emerson Network Power Introduces TrellisTrellis is an integrated, single-information-source data center infrastructure management (DCIM) platform. Emerson Network Power says it designed the platform to bridge the gap between a data center’s IT equipment and facilities infrastructure.

According to Emerson Network Power, data center managers today typically lack a single, real-time view of operating conditions within the IT equipment and the power and cooling systems that support them. Moreover, virtualization adds to the uncertainty by creating a shifting environment on a static physical layer.

“Virtualization has brought greater flexibility and efficiency to data center management,” says Hassell, “but has introduced new complexities and pressures to the static physical infrastructure.”

The Trellis infrastructure platform is a suite of hardware, software, and services designed to manage the dynamic nature and requirements of the infrastructure “holistically,” says Emerson, enabling data center managers to “make smarter decisions on the interplay between efficiency, availability, and capacity utilization.”

The Trellis platform brings together the functionalities of Emerson’s Aperture, Avocent, and Liebert DCIM solutions. Emerson aims for the product to increase capacity utilization by “providing visibility into and control over integration and collaboration between the physical and IT infrastructure layers,” states the company in a press release to EH Publishing.

“Organizations today lack visibility into the impact of virtualization and the deployment of high-density servers on the physical infrastructure, and that keeps them from utilizing the full capacity of their equipment,” Hassell explains. “We intend to provide that visibility along with the tools to manage and optimize changes to the physical infrastructure.”

Emerson Network Power expects the core Trellis modules to be available by Q4 2011 with subsequent modules rolling out over the following 12 to 18 months.
