Combination puts edge computing room data at fingertips of IT and service professionals
Columbus, Ohio – (January 26, 2017) – Vertiv™, formerly Emerson Network Power, announces that two of its most popular Liebert® cooling systems for small IT spaces are now available with the iCOMTM CMS Monitoring and Control System that enables remote monitoring, management and alarm troubleshooting for IT managers and service technicians.
iCOM CMS provides enhanced protection, visibility and control for small IT spaces that are increasingly used for edge computing and have become critical links to the cloud. iCOM CMS operates through the industry’s first Internet of Things (IoT) mobile app, the web or building management systems (BMS), allowing IT managers to view room and equipment conditions and alarm notifications, remotely manage cooling systems, and track the progress of troubleshooting and repair through automated workflow tracking.
The Liebert SRC is a high efficiency, easy-to-install mini-split air conditioning system that provides cooling for server rooms, network closets and other small IT spaces. Offering 4.5kW-9kW cooling capacity, the Liebert SRC provides simple building management system connectivity and is less expensive and faster to deploy than ducted systems.
The Liebert Mini-Mate2 is a zero-footprint computer room cooling system for 7x24 temperature and humidity control. Offering 3.5-28kW cooling capacity, it installs above a dropped ceiling.
Monitoring and remote management are among the top three concerns facing North American IT professionals regarding the management of small IT spaces, according to the Vertiv “2016 Cooling the Edge Survey.” Nearly half of the survey’s respondents said that these small spaces are mission critical, as they contribute to company revenues.
“The availability of iCOM CMS with our new mini-split and ceiling mounted systems is a big advantage for IT managers struggling with the challenges of protecting and monitoring remote spaces, and responding quickly when issues arise,” said John Peter (JP) Valiulis, vice president, North America thermal management marketing, Vertiv. “It provides reliable, cost-effective management of these revenue-critical spaces and combines high efficiency cooling with the ability to monitor and manage these spaces from virtually anywhere.”
