Geist Releases Racknet–A, an innovative new power strip data collection device

15 June 2012, Fort Collins, CO—Geist announces a versatile new power strip data collection device, Racknet–A, that will be available for shipping starting August 1st. This innovative new product provides visibility to data from Geist power strips in one, centralized location, saving users from having to set up thousands of IP addresses on the production network. In addition, users save considerable space on costly network switches by plugging power strips directly into Racknet–A to centralize all data for efficient monitoring.

As with the entire product family, Racknet–A has an intuitive, Web-based interface that displays, trends, and applies data for intelligent monitoring and management. It communicates via SNMP, comes with 48 ports, and supports up to one thousand devices.  In addition, Racknet–A offers alarms, notifications, trending features, and automatic reporting capabilities to give users all the required tools needed to run their data center more effectively. Racknet–A has the flexibility to act as a stand-alone system or integrate with a larger data center monitoring system via SNMP, BACnet, or oBIX.

“Racknet–A saves time by not having users set up all the IP addresses and it saves real estate on expensive network switches. Combining those favorable benefits with the already intuitive interface of the Racknet product line gives our users an effective Geist power strip management tool that can easily upgrade into a more comprehensive feature set,” Matt Lane, President of Geist DCiM explains.
