RF Code and Server Technology Collaborate

January 10, 2013

The two companies will combine their respective technologies to create an integrated offering that simplifies monitoring and management of data center power usage and environmental conditions.

AUSTIN, TX, and RENO, NV /PRNewswire/ -- RF Code Inc. and Server Technology announced an integrated data center solution making it significantly easier to monitor and manage the factors that impact the efficient, fiscally smart running of a data center.

The joint offering is an integration of RF Code's wire-free Sensor Manager solution with Server Technology's Sentry Power Manager (SPM) data center power monitoring solution via an SPM API integration. Information gathered from RF Code's sensors flows into SPM software, providing a consolidated view of power and environmental data. RF Code monitors and sends to SPM data about:

  • Temperature, humidity, air pressure, fluid detection, and more
  • Door open and close for greater security
  • Trending and alarming related to temperature, humidity, air pressure, and dew point

"From the CIO and CFO down, everyone involved with data center and facilities operations is concerned about the rising cost of power and cooling and the impact environmental conditions can have on data availability or uptime, whether from a bottom line, availability, operations, risk, or compliance perspective," said Richard Jenkins, Vice President, Marketing, RF Code. "This solution empowers executive and operational decision makers to make critical financial and business continuity decisions to increase data center efficiency."

"Our joint integration advances our belief that the best of both worlds is often found by combining the best of solutions," said Calvin Nicholson, Server Technology's Senior Director of Software and Firmware. "RF Code's differentiated, wire-free solution maps perfectly to our emphasis on intelligent monitoring of the power that affects usage, efficiency, and cost. We share this view of capable simplicity, which is demonstrated in the solutions we together bring to market."
