Vertiv has introduced a scalable, cloud-based management platform that brings advanced visibility, analytics, and control to complex IT infrastructure, including large enterprise and hyperscale facilities and those at the edge of the network. Vertiv™ Intelligence (vIntelligence) delivers holistic, customer-directed visibility and control of the entire infrastructure through an easy-to-use app and online portal. It is available in the United States today and available globally in 2019.
Vertiv Intelligence uses IoT and cloud-based technologies to collect, analyze and act on mountains of data generated by critical infrastructure systems across the network, including uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems, power distribution units (PDUs), environmental sensors and thermal management equipment. It distills that data and applies insights gleaned from IT deployments around the globe, virtually in real time, to overcome information overload and turn data into actionable knowledge. That knowledge can be used to optimize both performance and services across the network and throughout the life cycle of the equipment, enabling machine learning and artificial intelligence capable of transforming the data center.
Vertiv Intelligence is the foundation for a full portfolio of Vertiv software, hardware and services designed to bring unprecedented intelligence, control, and space and resource management to all corners of the data center and distributed IT infrastructure. The Vertiv Intelligence platform connects all Vertiv and third-party equipment, delivering unprecedented levels of visibility and control to optimize the performance of any critical infrastructure.
The vIntelligence app and online portal act as the interface for the Vertiv Intelligence platform, providing a centralized view of relevant data, alarms and alerts generated across the critical infrastructure. With the vIntelligence app and portal, users receive recommendations and notifications based on accumulated data and best practices. With that knowledge, they can activate responses remotely or set up automated responses to certain notifications, tailoring the output to meet the specific needs of the organization. The entry-level offering provides advanced monitoring and control, with available upgrades to add enhanced management and optimization capabilities and predictive intelligence. Secure gateways across the network safely manage communication between equipment and user. The Vertiv RDU 301 is the first cloud-connected secure gateway from Vertiv fully equipped to enable Vertiv Intelligence.
