The company’s Trellis optimization platform is a DCIM solution designed to help SMB users of Avocent, Aperture, and Liebert DCIM software solutions.
Business continuity innovator Emerson Network Power unveiled a data center infrastructure management (DCIM) adoption strategy this week aimed at enabling SMB users of Avocent, Aperture, and Liebert DCIM software solutions to adopt the Trellis dynamic infrastructure optimization platform.
“Our commitment has been to advance the state of Data Center Infrastructure Management while protecting our customers’ investments in the technology they are using today,” said Steve Hassell, president of the Avocent business of Emerson Network Power. “We are now in a position to work with new and existing customers to outline exactly how they can adopt the Trellis platform and experience unparalleled control over data center operations.”
The Trellis platform is designed to bring together and extend the functionalities currently delivered by Liebert SiteScan, Avocent Data Center Planner, and Aperture management software solutions. Current users of these Emerson Network Power software products will have a migration path to the Trellis platform.
“The demand for datacenter services is growing rapidly, and the interactions among applications, IT equipment, power, and cooling are getting more complex,” says John Stanley, research analyst for Eco-efficient IT at The 451 Group. “In order to achieve high efficiency, high availability, and low total cost of ownership, datacenter operators need to be able to understand each piece of the system, as well as how the pieces fit together. Datacenter infrastructure management tools are designed to pull together all the relevant data and transform it into insight that operators can use to make decisions.”
Scheduled for release early next year, the Trellis platform is the only DCIM solution to control a complete array of data center infrastructure assets, including both IT and physical infrastructure, from a single console.
