Geist unveils next generation technology platform for its Power Distribution Units to meet latest enterprise data center and cloud service provider demands

January 7, 2015. Lincoln, NE. Geist is pleased to announce the release of its next generation platform available in its R-series PDUs.  This new platform delivers DEVOPS capabilities with improved APIs and automation capabilities, along with a host of enterprise features such as Active Directory integration, IPv6, increased logging capacity, improved monitoring, reporting and user experience. 

John Durkin, VP of Sales & Marketing at Geist believes the release of this new technology substantiates Geist’s place as the market leader in the smart PDU arena, also highlighting Geist’s ability to integrate with critical cornerstones of the infrastructure to deliver a robust solution: “We’re offering our customers unbeatable value with more choices and functionality at the same price,” he said.

Leading edge enterprise customers and cloud service providers will enjoy the new DEVOPS capabilities for complete automation and integration via a JSON RESTful Web API or custom scripts utilizing the CLI over SSH. 

“Having a top of the line managed PDU is a must for forward-thinking organizations,” says Geist Data Center Solutions Group Executive VP Brad Wilson, “Customers need the reporting and alerting that Geist PDUs provide to ensure safe power usage thresholds are maintained, redundancy of the power circuits will work as expected in an event of a failure, and power outlets can be managed at the port level in-band and out-of-band.  Geist PDUs deliver this and much more with the latest upgrade.”
