Reliably powering your data center with Raritan

Having reliable power sources is paramount for any data center, as outages could lead to detrimental monetary loss and reputational damage.

Data centers have traditionally been built on the foundation of business continuity and more recently on security. But with more businesses going digital, agile and reliable data centers are needed to allow organisations to adapt to fast-changing environments.

“How data center players bring agility to the infrastructure layer and enable facilities to adapt to changing business requirements is the key to success,” said Sanjay Motwani, Vice President for Asia Pacific at Raritan, a brand of Legrand Data Center Solutions, our Platinum Sponsor for this event.

Raritan manufactures hardware, including power management solutions for data centers as well as remote server management and audio visual solutions.

Mr. Motwani will share his expert insights in selecting and identifying the best reliable and sustainable power solutions for your business.

Ensuring efficient data center management with TalariaX

The evaluation process serves as the foundation for your company’s virtual infrastructure when selecting a facility for the first time or migrating to a different data center. This decision will last a long time, so it is important to get it right.

Choosing how your data center is managed and the extent to which incident management is carried out is crucial. Supplementing these decisions with a robust notification system could mean the difference between costly downtime and no downtime.

“Data center selection needs to be comprehensive and not merely on cost or compute, but looking at the whole package,” said Jeat Shyan Wong, the Founder and CEO from our Bronze Sponsors at TalariaX.

TalariaX delivers efficient data center management through their DCIM and sendQuick services to provide alerts and notifications for any issues affecting critical parts of a data center.

Mr. Wong will provide more detail on the importance of data center management and strong notification platforms at our event this Thursday.
