Emerson Network Power Partners with IBM

Managing a data center is getting complicated every passing day as companies store an unprecedented volume of data in their data centers. This process now requires the help of various applications that help managers in simplifying data center management.

Emerson (News - Alert) Network Power has announced that the company will be joining hands with IBM to integrate its Trellis platform with IBM IT service management (ITSM) software. According to the company, this new partnership will improve the resources available to manage data centers.

The integration of Emerson’s Trellis platform with IBM (News - Alert) software allows users to better manage their data center ecosystem. The users will also get real-time visibility into their IT applications, which offers countless benefits. For example, real-time visibility can be used to improve energy consumption trends and to make better use of available space.

Additionally, it enables identifying and solving problems quickly and improves operational efficiency. Apart from that, it enables data center managers to understand the real costs involved in maintaining an application.

Trellis is a DCM solution that makes the task of running a data center simpler and allows users to save costs. It also enables data center managers to foresee infrastructure failures before they occur.

Steve Hassell, president of Emerson Network Power’s Avocent (News - Alert) business, said, “Aligning our DCIM capabilities with IBM’s software capabilities enables data center managers and IT and facilities leaders to see, decide, and act across all resources. This collaboration with IBM is a strong validation of our DCIM strategy and the ability of the Trellis platform to improve how data centers are currently managed and operated. Our collaboration will span engineering, development, and go-to-market strategies, and we are making significant investments.”

Recently, the company introduced a new 3U OpenVPX processor board, which, according to the company, offers improved computing performance.
