HeidelbergCement AG Selects Rackwise® DCiM X™
Rackwise® solution delivers detailed insight to manage global network of data centers
FOLSOM, CA July 24, 2012 – Rackwise, Inc. (RACK.OB) (the “Company”), a leading developer of data center infrastructure management (“DCIM”) software and service solutions, today announced that the Company has recently executed a license agreement with HeidelbergCement AG (“HeidelbergCement”) to install and deploy Rackwise® ™ in HeidelbergCement’s key data centers located in Germany and the United States.
One of the world’s largest manufacturers of building materials including aggregates, cement, concrete, and associated downstream activities, HeidelbergCement supports operations in more than 40 countries through this critical global network of data centers. HeidelbergCement chose the Rackwise® ™ solution for its ability to centralize tracking, management, and reporting of the physical asset inventory from a single solution and location. After evaluating other available DCIM solutions, HeidelbergCement found the Rackwise® offering to deliver the most comprehensive solution set including the capability to manage worldwide networks of data centers from a single console. In addition, the Rackwise® ™ solution provides an intuitive interface through its open architecture design, enabling an accelerated time to value resulting in better anticipated overall price-performance than competitive alternatives. HeidelbergCement anticipates that initial deployment will capture detail on information technology (“IT”) infrastructure assets at all of the data center facilities, with future plans to consider technology commission and de-commission, consolidations, virtualization, and power management for cost and efficiency optimization.
Mr. Volker Foerster, Head of global Data Centre Operations, HeidelbergCement AG, commented, “Installation and deployment of Rackwise® ™ will provide HeidelbergCement with enhanced levels of insight and control over our IT infrastructure and data center facilities globally. We look forward to achieving immediate positive results in our IT asset inventory tracking and management capabilities and are eager to expand utilization of the extensive array of product features and functions enabling overall data center facilities optimization and cost efficiencies.”
