Rackwise, Inc. Introduces Interactive Single-Line Power Diagrams

Rackwise, Inc. (OTC: RACK) (the "Company"), a leading developer of data center infrastructure management ("DCIM") software and service solutions, today announced that the Company has incorporated interactive single-line power diagrams among a number of new features into the latest release of its DCiM XTM offering, a robust suite of software providing solutions to the evolving challenges of the dynamic information technology (“IT”) infrastructure landscape.

Interactive single-line power diagrams empower facilities engineers and managers to view, measure and manage the complete power-chain, from utility to individual IT device power supply and all points in between. Visibility and interactive capabilities are delivered via a “single pane of glass” on the user’s web browser. Through a newly designed “Power” navigation tab in the Rackwise DCiM XTM web portal, users are able to select any of the enterprise’s data center locations and quickly toggle between physical equipment visualization on that data center’s floorplan and the single-line power diagrams. The new interactive feature rapidly renders an intuitive single-line power diagram view, illustrating measured power and circuit completeness all along the power-chain. Users can drill further into details and connections by clicking any point on the diagram. This innovative capability has produced user efficiencies of more than 20% over traditional methods of power diagram inspection and management.

This latest release of Rackwise DCiM XTM also delivers several other innovative features, enhancements and performance improvements, including automated rack and power provisioning wizards, additional what-if scenario analytics and a significantly expanded suite of standard comprehensive reports. This release is currently available in both the Company’s Rackwise DCiM XTM enterprise software suite as well as its Rackwise DCiM X OnDemandTM, the Company’s SaaS subscription offering.

Mr. Guy A. Archbold, Rackwise, Inc. Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We have worked closely with our customers to understand their requirements and are delighted to deliver these new powerful, innovative, market leading features in this latest release of our core product. We are particularly pleased to integrate these functionalities into our standard offering, enabling our customers with a significantly more expansive toolset without the need to purchase any additional software modules or incur any additional costs. Together with other enhancements incorporated in this release of our Rackwise DCiM XTM suite, integration of interactive single-line power diagrams moves us towards a more holistic view of IT and data center facility management disciplines while further improving productivity, ease of use, and value to our customers by enabling efficiencies, assuring the highest levels of reliability and discovering hidden capacity across diverse computing landscapes. Our market leading asset visualization, modeling, and analytics capabilities continue to bring insight and flexibility to data center managers and infrastructure technology professionals charged with efficiently delivering on IT goals and commitments in dynamic operating environments with continually evolving time and cost constraints.”
