SOMERSET, N.J., Sept. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Raritan executives are scheduled to speak at Data Center World next week in Orlando, Fla.   The Raritan sessions focus on best practices and tools for delivering optimal operations and managing data center resources more efficiently -- including IT and facilities equipment, rack space and energy.

Monday, September 12, 9:45–10:45 am
Improve Data Center Capacity Utilization (Session P06)
Khaled Nassoura, General Manager of the Green Data Center Initiative, Raritan

Learn how to manage data center capacity and assets, and improve people efficiency and data center utilization with dcTrack® software.  Understand how intelligent capacity search extends the life of existing facilities by revealing valuable stranded power, space and network capacity. Unlike spreadsheets and Visio diagrams, dcTrack's advanced visualization capability and point-and-click operation provide users with accurate information on assets, complete power chain and end-to-end network connections when they need it.

Tuesday, September 13, 4–5 pm
Carbon Footprint: Should a Data Center Manager Care? (Session F10)
Herman Chan, Director of Power Business Unit, Raritan.

kWh is key to knowing the real cost of power usage and carbon footprint.  Energy cost is based on kWh charges, and carbon footprint is based on kWh carbon factors -- and both depend on the type of power generation.  This session will present approaches to monitoring power consumption and practical, tactical methods to reduce kWh consumption in data centers.

Raritan also will be showing its DCIM (Data Center Infrastructure Management) solution portfolio at the Data Center World Expo in booth # 1010.  Among the products that will be shown is the just-introduced intelligent Asset Tag and Sensor solution that automates IT asset tracking to better manage data center server adds, moves and changes, and the dcTrack software solution for intelligent capacity, change and asset management.
