Siemon Partners with Graphical Networks netTerrain DCIM Provider
Siemon, a leading global network infrastructure specialist, is pleased to announce that it has partnered with leading data center infrastructure management (DCIM) solution provider Graphical Networks whose netTerrain DCIM platform will enable Siemon customers to gain the network visibility they need to effectively manage, monitor, control and document the data center.
The netTerrain DCIM platform is a centralized, multi-user, browser-based platform that visualizes the data center right down to the port level or card in a chassis via easy-to-use navigation that renders powerful hierarchical and subcomponent data center diagrams. It includes rack, cabinet and floor layouts to visually see cabinet occupancy and manage assets and circuit layouts to provide on-demand display of cabling links between equipment and components.
Through the netTerrain platform, users can easily configure layouts with integrated access to Siemon’s WheelHouse Advanced Data Center Solutions, including cabinets, racks, cable management, copper and fiber connectivity, and power distribution units. Siemon PowerMax intelligent PDUs that deliver real-time monitoring and control of power usage, capacity and environmental conditions also integrate with the netTerrain platform for users to monitor data center power at the device or outlet level.
“Today’s data centers are more complex than ever before, with thousands of connections linking a wide range of devices, cards and ports all occupying physical space in racks and cabinets and consuming power,” says Frank Velleca, Siemon’s Market Manager for Strategic Projects. “We are excited to partner with Graphical Networks and integrate our data center solutions into the netTerrain DCIM platform to help our customers maximize space and capacity, manage assets, lower power and cooling costs, reduce downtime, and properly plan and forecast for growth.
“We have been searching for the right data center hardware manufacturer to partner with for some time,” comments Jan Durnhofer, CEO of Graphical Networks. “It is an honor to have been selected from a large pool of possible DCIM vendors for this partnership. Siemon is a well-known and respected manufacturer with a large presence not just within the United States, but in the many other countries where Graphical Networks also has a presence.”For more information about Siemon’s partnership with Graphical Networks and the netTerrain DCIM platform, visit www.siemon.com/dcim.
