Meet us at BICSI

Bicsi banner May 16

The BICSI UK Conference and Exhibition is a one day conference due to take place at London’s prestigious Barbican Conference Centre.

The event will deliver game changing information to those involved in the installation and specification of network infrastructures in the data centre and information communications technology environment.

Rittal will be there to discuss how the requirements placed by a company on its data centre are dependent on a wide range of factors. Regardless of whether a company has a few racks or several hundred servers, every application is reliant upon availability and efficiency.

Rittal’s experts will be there to guide you through “The System”  which offers a perfectly coordinated platform for this purpose – from systematic requirement analysis and planning of the entire data centre, to physical security, through to configuration with precise-fit, efficient IT infrastructure components. This includes robust racks for server and network technology, efficient power supply and protection, and energy-saving climate control components. The system is rounded off by monitoring and security solutions and global customer service.

Rittal’s 185mm Ri4Power busbar system

A range of market-leading power distribution systems for enclosures has just been extended.

Rittal’s popular 185mm Ri4Power busbar provides trusted, safe and compact power distribution within enclosures.  

Rittal Ri4Power  185

Its modular system is easy to install in just three steps, and consists of standardised and tested products, all of which meet the requirements of IEC 61 439 for low-voltage switchgear assemblies with design verification.

The newly expanded Ri4Power range now allows both 1600 amp and 630 amp moulded case circuit breakers to be used.  What’s more, connection adaptors and connec-tion blocks are now available to enable faster cable connection.

The Ri4Power busbar system can be configured in Rittal Power Engineering software; the relevant program module is included within its latest version (6.3).

When the Cloud comes out of the Container

In a remarkable first for the IT sector, Rittal and iNNOVO Cloud GmbH have come together to create a new and innovative “turnkey cloud data centre in a container” concept. It was showcased at CeBIT 2016 exhibition in Hannover and aims to show how companies can rapidly establish new cloud-based data centres. 

The exciting “RiMatrix Balanced Cloud Center” (RiMatrix BCC) concept combines Rittal’s global-leading IT racks, containers, climate control technology and power distribution with the complete cloud infrastructure, including OpenStack cloud management software supplied and installed by iNNOVO Cloud.

Companies would use the components within the RiMatrix BCC to model a huge range of options to meet their needs, from an on-premises private cloud to virtual private data centres, all using verifiably safe servers, storage and network systems. Server and storage systems can be operated in a way which is both standardised and cost-effective using services from the cloud, provided as “IT as a Service (ITaaS). Until now, planning and constructing a data centre had been considered as being an entirely bespoke process taking several years for companies to complete.

But with this new joint initiative, Rittal and iNNOVO Cloud GmbH have created an alternative in the RiMatrix BCC that could offer a far faster solution. Customers would receive a turnkey cloud data centre in ISO or non-ISO container format in which the components such as racks, climate control and power supply would be provided as predefined modules.

However, for the first time, the server, network, and storage woud be included with the delivery already pre-configured. Furthermore, the cloud management software would be provided courtesy of the open source “OpenStack” framework. The result is a standardised and completely virtualised cloud data centre, equally suitable for standard and highly demanding applications, such as high-performance computing (HPC) or “big data” purposes.

“The industrialisation of data centre construction now enables companies to create their own powerful IT infrastructure solutions more quickly and easily than ever before”, says Martin Kipping, Rittal’s Director International IT Projects.

“Time-to-market is a critical factor for companies. Rittal’s container solutions exhibited at CeBIT show how we can address these requirements and help customers with modular IT systems to meet the growing demand for high and scalable computing performance”, Mr Kipping added.

At CeBIT, visitors had the opportunity to walk through the RiMatrix BCC container to get a close-up view of the quality of the product and all its component parts.

This joint enterprise from Rittal and iNNOVO Cloud GmbH has been backed by years of innovation on both sides. Rittal has applied its expertise in IT infrastructure and data centre modules while iNNOVO Cloud GmbH has many years of experience designing and operating cloud platforms.

The focus has been on delivering “IT as a Service” (ITaaS) so that the server, storage, network and applications collectively run in as standardised a way as possible, laying the foundations for a company-specific, bespoke cloud platform.
