Raritan today announced it has won the 2010 Green IT Award in the ‘Hardware Product of the Year’ category for its Dominion® PX intelligent power distribution unit (PDU), which helps data centers measure power usage accurately. In addition, the company's Power IQ™ energy management software received a runner-up award in the 'Minister of Energy' category.
Winners of this year's Green IT awards were announced at an awards ceremony held on Earth Day, April 22, in London. Sponsored by Green IT Magazine, the awards recognize the outstanding environmental products, suppliers and projects of 2009 and highlight the companies and teams that have made significant contributions to improving the IT industry’s environmental performance.
"We are extremely delighted to have two of our key power management solutions recognized with prestigious Green IT Awards," said Edwin de Boer, Director of Marketing, at Raritan Europe. "Our focus is to help data centers, which are big energy consumers, better control power consumption and become more efficient – and, as a result, improve the environment. Our customers are making great strides in this direction, and we are proud to be playing a role in this important effort."
Dominion PX provides unique power information to help answer key data center questions, such as 'where servers should be placed for optimal efficiency' and 'which rack has available capacity'. Customers have a better understanding of how much and how their data centers consume energy and, as a result, can take steps to improve efficiency and track improvements.
Power IQ collects and analyzes energy data of IT equipment connected to Raritan's Dominion PX PDU and third-party Ethernet-enabled intelligent rack PDUs, as well as data center temperature and humidity.
