The Trellis™ Dynamic Infrastructure Optimization Platform Answers an Unmet Need
Emerson Network Power has introduced Trellis, the first integrated, single information-source data center infrastructure management (DCIM) platform to bridge the critical gap between a data center’s IT equipment and facilities infrastructure. The Trellis dynamic infrastructure optimization platform is a family of hardware, software and services that are designed to manage the dynamic nature and requirements of the infrastructure holistically from a central “source of truth,” enabling data center managers to make smarter decisions on the interplay between efficiency, availability and capacity utilization.
The Trellis platform will increase capacity utilization by providing visibility into and control over integration and collaboration between the physical and IT infrastructure layers – what we call dynamic infrastructure optimization – eliminating the need for guesswork that necessitates a power system capacity “buffer.”
Emerson Network Power expects to have the core Trellis modules available by Q4 2011 with subsequent modules rolling out over the following 12 to 18 months. In order to begin achieving the benefits of an optimized data center infrastructure, customers can implement any of Emerson Network Power’s existing Aperture, Avocent or Liebert hardware or software solutions. Each of these solutions will migrate to the new Trellis platform and bring the customer dynamic infrastructure optimization, a level of DCIM that no one else can provide.
