iTRACS™ Corporation, Inc., a global leader in data center infrastructure management (DCIM), today announced that it has been included in the list of “Cool Vendors” in the Cool Vendors in Data Center Infrastructure Management Tools, 2011* report by Gartner.
The Gartner analyst team recommended that IT executives should “evaluate and pilot test new Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) tools” and “ascertain the power consumption, capacity, and likely growth rate for your data center.” Further they believe “DCIM is likely to be self-funding — the cost of tools is likely to be offset by the savings in power costs that DCIM helps enable.” The analysts included iTRACS Converged Physical Infrastructure Management® (CPIM®) in the Cool Vendor category.
“As data centers have shown a dramatic increase in physical infrastructure and power consumption, the need for the management of more-complex data center resources from the physical perspective has increased,” said Gartner in its report.
“iTRACS is transforming the way physical infrastructure in the data center is seen, managed, and optimized,” said Elizabeth Given, president and CEO of iTRACS. “CPIM’s convergence of interactive 3D visualization, actionable insight, and what-if scenarios is delivering unparalleled positive impact in the management and on-going reduction of energy costs within some of the world’s most complex global IT infrastructures. CPIM offers the world’s only interactive 3D environment for seeing and managing IT infrastructure. Our advancements in Data Center Infrastructure Management are a manifestation of thought leadership matured through the development of value-based relationships with our clients and unrelenting focus on our core competency – physical infrastructure management. Working together with our customers, we continue to advance the application of technology to address the challenge of today’s unsustainable data center power consumption. We believe that our inclusion in the Gartner Cool Vendors report is confirmation of our approach and testimony to its innovation and results.”
