RagingWire N-Matrix(SM) DCIM Enhances Colocation Customer Experience by Bringing Transparency to Data Center Operations

Through an Online Portal and APIs, RagingWire Customers Can Access Real-Time Operational Data About Their Data Center Environment

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - November 10, 2014) - CA World '14 - RagingWire Data Centers, the nation's premier data center provider and an NTT Communications group company, announced today the general availability of its data center infrastructure management (DCIM) offering -- N-Matrix℠ DCIM. RagingWire made the announcement at CA World '14, which has over 5,000 attendees at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. RagingWire worked closely with CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) to implement and tailor key elements of the CA DCIM application suite into the N-Matrix platform to provide improved data collection, normalization, and visualization across RagingWire's critical infrastructure including power, cooling, security, and environmental systems.

"From a customer perspective, the often opaque world of data center colocation is becoming more transparent with N-Matrix DCIM," said William Dougherty, Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at RagingWire. "With this powerful toolset, RagingWire provides our customers web-based access to real-time data visualization capabilities and APIs so that they can better manage their current infrastructure and plan for future expansion and growth."

For customers, traditional colocation and data center outsourcing has often lacked visibility into the operations and performance of their critical infrastructure. In this new era of cloud computing, big data, and IT optimization, colocation customers are increasingly demanding real-time operational status, system views, power consumption reporting, and capacity management as part of their colocation solution, along with the ability to integrate this data with their internal IT management software systems. N-Matrix DCIM can become a strategic asset, empowering RagingWire customers to continuously optimize their operations, reduce costs, and extend the life of their infrastructure.

Rhonda Ascierto, Research Manager, Data Center Technologies for 451 Research, is one of the top industry analysts covering the DCIM space. According to Ascierto, "More multi-tenant data center customers are demanding continuous operational status of their infrastructure with accurate and actionable data on energy use, system capacity, and asset tracking. RagingWire is enhancing their customers' experience and raising the bar on transparency for the colocation industry with N-Matrix DCIM. Transparent operations are becoming a key differentiator in the data center colocation services market." 

RagingWire's Dougherty will be a featured speaker during multiple sessions at CA World '14. On Monday, November 10, Dougherty will be joined by Dhesikan Ananchaperumal, Senior Vice President of Software Engineering at CA Technologies, to present the case study, "RagingWire: Improving Service Delivery by Extending DCIM to Manage Data Center and IT Capacity," followed by a "Meet The Experts Q&A" session. On Wednesday, November 12, Dougherty and executives from Itau Unibanco of Brazil will discuss converged capacity management as an innovative way to improve utilization and efficiency.
