RagingWire Enterprise Solutions, Inc., Northern California’s premier data center and managed services provider, announced they will provide all usage-based clients with an innovative new power monitoring and reporting suite. This no cost, highly customizable monitoring suite enables RagingWire clients to see their power usage on a per circuit basis in real-time.

RagingWire clients access this data through the secure RagingWire client portal and generate reports to fit their specific needs. Beyond monitoring and reporting on their individual power circuits, clients can also view the specific PDU or UPS their equipment is directly fed by in the data center. “We approached this project with a single mantra: you can’t manage what you don’t monitor,” said Frank Marisco, RagingWire’s Senior Director of Software Development.

“This new monitoring suite will not only give our clients immediate information for capacity planning but will also support carbon reporting in the near future.” The MyRes on-line client portal is an intuitive, user-friendly tool that gives clients control over their RagingWire services and provides insight into the performance of their IT infrastructure. With real-time reports, clients are able to: manage accessibility, change firewall policies, request support, monitor bandwidth usage, and now monitor and report on power consumption. “Our clients consider us to be one of the nation’s premier data centers,” said Robert Quinn, RagingWire’s Vice President of Information Technology. “This reputation comes not only from our fault tolerant facility design, but our demonstrated commitment to provide responsive, flexible, value-added service to every client in our data center. This new power monitoring suite gives our clients an unprecedented granular view of data that is fundamental to their business operations.”

RagingWire’s Power Monitoring and Reporting Suite puts real-time per circuit-level power usage data into the hands of clients. Some of the innovative features of this new tool include: Real-time reporting of individual power circuits, enabling immediate situational awareness Customizable reports, for extreme flexibility Capacity reporting on a per-circuit basis, allowing real-time analysis of data Color-coded displays of utilization percentages, providing instant visual alerts Month-to-date usage reporting for each circuit, rack, and cage, enabling capacity planning Visibility into upstream UPS, PDU, and transformers connected to individual circuits, for in-depth redundancy planning.
