|Includes: Rackable Systems Inc. (RACK)

San Francisco based Rackwise, Inc., provider of software for the rapidly growing market of Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM), has executed a series of agreements with Intel Corporation to affect a master license for the intended deployment of Rackwise’s Data Center Management (DCM) software in all Intel data centers around the world. Implementation and deployment of the DCM software is expected to commence in the first quarter of 2012, with deployment to 6 Intel data centers in various regions globally. Second phase deployment will be to the remaining 60 Intel data centers worldwide. Specifically, the agreement calls for a technology collaboration to embed Intel DCM software into the Rackwise DCM product, effectively giving users real time data monitoring and reporting capabilities at unparalleled granular levels.

This major DCIM implementation will include an evaluation and feedback agreement related to Rackwise’s next generation DCIM software solutions, which will initially be available only to Intel, but will subsequently be offered to all customers. The initial deployment will encompass a substantial amount of equipment comprising Intel information technology assets, and will include asset modeling, power mapping, cooling, network availability, and multiple virtualized product instances, data replication across regions, proximity load balancing, and initial data migration from currently installed DCIM tools.

Rackwise CEO, Guy A. Archbold, spoke of the landmark agreement: “We are extremely pleased and proud to join in collaboration with Intel®, a leader in worldwide IT and computing innovation, to develop and introduce this ground-breaking capability for the Data Center Infrastructure Management market. Integrating device level data aggregation exclusively within our asset visualization, modeling, and analytics functions will provide data center and infrastructure technology professionals powerful, state-of-the-art tools for real-time data management to maximize operational efficiencies and economic benefits.”

Intel’s Director of Data Center Solutions, Jeff Klaus, added, “The Intel® Data Center Manager combined with RACKWISE® DCM helps provide data center managers and executives extensive visibility into device level energy usage and thermal data which will enhance capacity planning, forecasting, performance monitoring and energy management for significant operational savings. RACKWISE® DCM ’s extensive visualization, reporting and analytics platform combined with information from Intel® DCM will give data center personnel an unprecedented level of intelligent access and control over the physical and virtual assets within the data center.”
