Editor's Choice Geist DCIM Reveals Environet Asset to Expand Data Center Infrastructure Solutions Geist DCIM has launched Environet Asset, giving users full control and visualization of both the logical and physical data center infrastructure. This offering allows efficient and cost effective data center operation over all stages of device life cycles. By simplifying the process of asset management, Environet Asset empowers collection, organization and visualization of the information needed to manage assets, network connections, power connections and space. This software identifies available capacity and resourcefully employs work orders to manage the entire asset lifecycle. The enterprise visualizations provide navigation throughout the data center, from the 3D site level down to each individual connection. With drag-and-drop functionality, connection mapping is simple and easy to configure. Dashboards and reporting provide real-time visuals within the data center allowing users to make intelligent, proactive decisions within their data center infrastructure. The Environet Asset module can be combined with Geist DCIM's existing Environet Facility to provide a data center and facility infrastructure management solution. Together, the software provides specialized views of all aspects of the data center environment and capacities including real-time power, cooling, environmental; all coupled with full lifecycle management of IT assets. Tripp Lite Introduces New Console Server for Wireless Network Access from Any Location Tripp Lite has added an eight port serial console server to its line of console servers. With the B094008-2E-V 8-port serial console server, users can securely access servers, routers, network switches, UPS systems, PDUs and other IT devices in-band or wirelessly from any location through a single, highly secure gateway. Certified for use with Verizon's network, it features a built-in cellular modem that supports 4G LTE network speeds, providing out-of-band, redundant, or failover network site access and SMS notification for error conditions. It also includes dual Ethernet NIC, 4 GB of internal USB flash memory, and runs on Linux for scalability and reduced downtime. The B094-008-2E-V serial console server offers advanced management tools and other software that surpass the requirements of even the most demanding applications. They include network UPS tools for UPS monitoring, PowerMan for integrated PDU and RPC functions with in session hotkey support, pattern match alerting, open access to the Linux shell for scripting and heartbeat monitoring with automatic fail-over. Computing Platform from Elma Includes Cisco Certified Routing Engine Elma Electronic, Inc. now offers an embedded computer packaged for applications in demanding mobile environments. The COM Express-based computer includes a Cisco-certified routing engine complete with the full suite of mobile routing protocols essential for network attached equipment on the move. By combining a set of standard I/O and Intel's 4th generation processing power and graphics support with a ruggedized, compact design, the system is well suited for demanding mobile environments in defense, industry, homeland security and agriculture. Mobile users can quickly establish ad hoc networks as nodes, facilitating communication, and SSD storage is expandable to 64 GB to meet system requirements. The modular system uses industry standard Type 6 COM Express, XMC/PMC and miniPCIe modules to keep initial engineering costs low as well as protect future computing upgrades. Designed for adaptability, the S50G-1 includes a PMC/XMC site to facilitate quick functional requirement changes, dual miniPCIe sites for a wide range of additional I/O and Elma's mid I/O card that eliminates the typical carrier design for high speed XMC I/O signals. 4 Spring 2015 * www.ElectronicsProtectionMagazine.com Volume 13, Issue 1 Editor & Publisher, David Webster Director of Content Nick Depperschmidt Senior Editor, Shannon Given Associate Editor, Heather Williams Manager of Administration & Customer Service, Marsha Grillo Fulfillment Services & Circulation Marc Vang, Ross Webster Advertising & Sales William Massey, Sue Hannebrink, Scott Webster Production Carmen Abraham, Production Manager CJ Brewer, Webmaster ELECTRONICS PROTECTION (ISSN #1544-7812) is a publication of Webcom Communications Corp.
