RF Code Underpins Leading Gartner DCIM Magic Quadrant Vendors
Major Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) companies lead the competition with real-time data from RF Code.
RF Code has announced that a number of its partners have been recognized as leaders and challengers in the inaugural DCIM Gartner Magic Quadrant. Nlyte, CA Technologies, iTRACS, FieldView Solutions, FNT Software and Modius have all increased the capabilities of their solutions using RF Code sensor networks for real-time asset, environmental and power data.
“We value the commitment of our partners and are not surprised by Gartner’s recognition of their leadership in data center management,” said Richard Jenkins, vice president of marketing & strategic partnerships at RF Code. “It has been important for us and our DCIM partners to work together to deliver the accurate data required to manage enterprise data centers.”
In the Magic Quadrant, Gartner defines DCIM as providing the following capabilities; “continuous optimization of power, cooling, and data center space,” “achieve greater energy efficiency” and “enhanced resource and asset management.” RF Code has built its hardware instrumentation, open middleware (into which most partners integrate) and its management platform to collate real-time data, thus providing its partners with immediate visualization of changes, alerts and workflow updates.
Nlyte is one of the pioneers of DCIM and shares a number of large enterprise customers with RF Code. Nlyte’s Mark Harris, VP of Data Center Strategy said of the partnership, “Nlyte is one of the leaders in the DCIM Magic Quadrant and has long been a partner of RF Code. Our mutual high-profile customers see the highest value from their Nlyte DCIM deployments when they add RF Code’s ability to monitor location, power and environment. The combination enables better production decision making.”
CA Technologies is leading the way in closing the gap between the data center operations and IT management layer. “We believe Gartner’s acknowledgement of CA Technologies as a leader is a testament of our commitment to helping customers optimize their data centers to better support the growing needs of their business," said Terrence Clark, SVP and BU Executive, Enterprise Management, CA Technologies. "By combining CA DCIM’s rich monitoring, management and analytics capabilities with the granular data collection RF Code’s sophisticated environmental and asset sensor technology provides, customers can gain deeper visibility and insight to support their data center strategy, operations, planning and provisioning."
As the data center continues to increase in strategic importance to organizations, the accuracy and speed at which data is collated and analyzed will drive efficiencies and performance that will both save large percentages of IT and energy budgets, and unnecessary investment in over-provisioning of resources. RF Code leads the industry in the instrumentation, aggregation and analysis of this data and continues to develop valuable partnerships with like-minded vendors and systems integrators.
