SOMERSET, N.J., June 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Raritan today announced that its data center management solutions have received multiple awards recently from industry organizations around the globe. Raritan's solutions that help data centers better manage and utilize resources were selected for the innovative ways they solve data center energy issues -- such as reducing energy waste, finding capacity, and more-efficient ways to add servers and make changes.
Raritan won the "Environmental Project of the Year" award for its case study on eBay's implementation of data center energy-saving solutions.

Dean Nelson and his team at eBay have raised the bar for the industry and have demonstrated that Green IT is not only good for the environment, but also good for business," said Gary Marks, Senior Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing for Raritan. "We are proud that our data center software solutions, as well as our intelligent rack power distribution units for measuring data center energy, are being recognized globally for their outstanding and innovative management capabilities."
