NEW YORK, March 16, 2015 -  Raritan, a leading provider of data center infrastructure management (DCIM) and rack power distribution solutions, today announced new power management capabilities for its award-winning Intelligent Rack Transfer Switch that helps data centers keep equipment operating through power failures and provides 

                                  insights on energy usage and rack-equipment health.

The Intelligent Rack Transfer Switch – which uses a patent-pending hybrid design for fast and reliable load transfers from one power source to another – now offers outlet-level metering and power switching.   Ideal for cloud computing infrastructures and data center racks filled with one-power-supply devices, the new switch is one of the fastest in the industry — twice as fast as standard automatic transfer switches — and one of the most reliable.  

Similar to Raritan's intelligent rack power distribution units, the new transfer switch can monitor power at the outlet-level, as well as the inlet-level, providing more granular energy information useful for capacity planning and managing energy costs.  The transfer switch's new secure switching capabilities enable power to a device to be turned on and off remotely – eliminating visits to the data center.  For more visibility to the data center rack, many customers use Raritan's DCIM software to analyze and monitor the power information gathered by the transfer switch, as well as the health of the power chain.
