What do you get when you combine rack mount power distribution units (PDU) and smart Internet of Things solutions? You get simplified solutions for data centers worldwide.
This is the aim of Server Technology (News - Alert) and Latronix, which recently formed a marketing partnership that mingles Server Technology’s power management solutions with Lantronix' existing line of remote IT management products for a best of breed solution.
"Lantronix (News - Alert) has a long and successful track record in providing top of the line console management solutions," said Calvin Nicholson, Senior Director of Software and Firmware Development for Server Technology, in a press statement. "Now, with seamless integration with our entire intelligent PDU offering, we believe our combined power solution will serve our customers well."
As part of this partnership, Lantronix is releasing a free firmware upgrade for its Lantronix SLC console manager, enabling direct interoperability with Server Technology PDUs. This will allow users to access and control Server Technology power distribution solutions via Lantronix console management products.
“Server Technology's power management solutions, when combined with Lantronix' existing line of remote IT management products, provide a true best of breed solution -- and THAT is what Tier One customers are looking for -- fully-integrated solutions available and customizable on a global scale, that are EASY to buy, use, customize, deploy and manage remotely,” said Vishal Kakkad, Director of Product Marketing for Lantronix.
PDUs are used in server rooms, data centers, remote telecom sites, and anywhere else that equipment may need to be toggled on or off without someone physically being on-site. PDUs are used in telecom, transportation/transit, public utilities, government, military, education, and research environments worldwide.
Server Technology’s PDUs are designed to be adaptable and enable quick delivery of solutions that meet customer-specific requirements. With the Latronix partnership, users can connect to equipment throughout the world, and diagnose and remediate problems remotely.
