​Vertiv Introduces Cloud-Based Monitoring And Control Platform

Vertiv has introduced a scalable, cloud-based management platform delivering data, insights and control via an app and browser available in the United States today and globally in 2019.

Vertiv Intelligence uses IoT and cloud-based technologies to collect, analyze and act on mountains of data generated by critical infrastructure systems across the network, including uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems, power distribution units (PDUs), environmental sensors and thermal management equipment. It distills that data and applies insights gleaned from IT deployments around the globe, virtually in real time, to overcome information overload and turn data into actionable knowledge. That knowledge can be used to optimize both performance and services across the network and throughout the life cycle of the equipment, enabling machine learning and artificial intelligence capable of transforming the data center.

“As networks become larger, more complicated and more distributed, the ability to see across systems and locations and convert oceans of raw data to real, actionable knowledge is the single biggest advantage any organization can possess,” said Patrick Quirk, vp and gm for Global Management Systems at Vertiv. “Vertiv Intelligence brings that level of insight to the palm of your hand, allowing users to choose exactly what kind of information they receive, how and when they receive it, and what actions should be executed as a result.”

The entry-level offering provides advanced monitoring and control, with available upgrades to add enhanced management and optimization capabilities and predictive intelligence.

“The vIntelligence app and online portal act as the interface for the Vertiv Intelligence platform, providing a centralized view of relevant data, alarms and alerts generated across the critical infrastructure,” he explains. “With them, users receive recommendations and notifications based on accumulated data and best practices. With that knowledge, they can activate responses remotely or set up automated responses to certain notifications, tailoring the output to meet the specific needs of the organization.”
