Press Release – DirectNET Partners with Powerware to Provide Complete Power Solutions
Broomfield, CO – August 28, 2007. DirectNET Inc., the nation’s largest provider of server management and data center infrastructure solutions, today announced that it has entered into a value added reseller agreement with Eaton Powerware to provide comprehensive power quality and backup power management solutions.
“With the current estimates that 10 to 30 percent of IT budgets go toward paying for power, we recognize the need to provide innovative, efficient power solutions,” comments Alan Mamane, CEO of DirectNET. “Based on our vendor agnostic approach of assessing, recommending, and offering the solutions that best fit our customer’s needs, Eaton’s market-leading power technologies were a critical addition to our portfolio.”
Along with Powerware’s broad range of rack-based uninterruptible power system (UPS) systems, DirectNET will also offer Powerware’s pivotal technologies that provide much-needed relief for high-density computing environments including the innovative Powerware BladeUPS™ and the Power Xpert Architecture™.
“Our ability to offer these niche products, in conjunction with broader-reaching power solutions, is an important market advantage for DirectNET,” commented Patrick Cameron, Director of Business Development for DirectNET, Inc. “In the coming quarters we expect to continue adding products that meet the unique needs of our customers.”
The Powerware BladeUPS is a revolutionary power quality solution, scalable power protection from 12 kW to 60 kW in a single industry standard 19-inch rack, and most significantly, providing this robust, compact solution without generating the additional heat associated with legacy end-of-row, modular UPS products.
The Power Xpert Architecture integrates power quality meters, gateways, time servers and software to unify the management of the multi-vendor power infrastructure. IT and facility managers have complete visibility of and access to real-time, accurately synchronized information related to power quality at both the system and equipment levels.
“The addition of these UPS system product lines means you can count on the same high level of service that you have come to expect from DirectNET Inc. as you look for options to meet the changing power requirements within your data center,” adds Mr. Mamane.
