Vertiv has announced cloud-based addition to its portfolio that will empower customers with deeper insights across the data center.
As part of the Vertiv cloud offering, now available is a new Internet of Things (IoT) gateway that provides added security with simple installation and commissioning to streamline data center connectivity. The Vertiv RDU300 gateway, a new entry in the Vertiv RDU family of monitoring and control products, integrates with building management systems and ensures that any data passed to the Vertiv cloud from the customer site is done securely and using minimum bandwidth.
Together the Vertiv cloud offering and Vertiv RDU300 gateway enable remote visibility, collection and analysis of critical infrastructure data across all Vertiv products.
Patrick Quirk, vice president and general manager of Global Management Systems at Vertiv said, “The accumulated knowledge from past, present and future deployments is a powerful resource, and this cloud-based initiative operationalizes that resource in a way that will bring unprecedented capabilities to our customers.”
With billions of historical uninterruptible power supply (UPS), battery and thermal system data points populating the Vertiv cloud, supplemented by the constant inflow of real-time data, operators will be able to make decisions and take actions based on data-based insight and best practices from across the industry.
Additional announcements are planned over the next 12 months, including predictive analytics and assistance as Vertiv applies machine learning to the data in the cloud. Vertiv cloud capabilities and the Vertiv RDU300 gateway are available now.
